A mother requested an aid to keep her severely disabled child under control whilst being changed.
Six slots were cut in a piece of MDF through which the restraining straps of a Leckey waistcoat (usually used in the child’s buggy) would just pass and the buckles fixed together behind. The board was padded and lined with washable vinyl. The child is placed on the board and the Velcro fastenings on the waistcoat closed.
This simple system soon became acceptable to the child and has become a great boon to the mother.
