Pram harness release

Pram harness release 1 A patient with rheumatoid arthritis is unable to operate the harness release mechanism on her child’s pram.

A scissor type mechanism was developed from which four finger pins act upon both spring catches simultaneously. It is placed over the junction piece, with both handles horizontal. The handles are then freely rotated to the 20 to 4 position, the action of which squeezes each catch and pushes them out of the junction piece. In the event of one catch releasing before the other, the mechanism shifts slightly sideways to effect ejection of the remaining clip.
