Choosing the Right Wheelchair Chest Strap
The overall length is the determining factor for most people in choosing the right size wheelchair chest strap. Have the user sit in their wheelchair or scooter and using a tailor's tape measure, measure around the chest area to the expected mounting points on the seat back. Using the charts below, select the proper size. It's OK to have the straps be a little longer, especially if you plan to wrap the strap around the frame (as shown below). The slack can be taken up when adjusting the straps.
