Evoflex + Belt Extender

Evoflex + Belt Extender

  • The Evoflex Hip Belt is now easier to mount without compromising user fit.
  • Evoflex’s stiffened end straps stay upright or pivot out of the way when you want, and stay where you put them.
  • Straps won’t twist or fall into the wheels, thus facilitating transfers and making it easier to keep the straps clean.
  • A patented, tapered design improves stability by allowing a closer fit.
  • With the new Evoflex Belt Extender, straps can be lengthened up to 12.5 cm (5") on each side while maintaining the stiffness of the Evoflex — great for chairs with contoured seating, thicker seat cushions or distant mounting points.
