Short Description

These straps can be used to hold a person's feet in place on the footplates of a wheelchair. They are attached to the footplate and then done up over the top of the shoe and around the back of the heel. If no shoes are being worn, it is suggested that socks be worn to help prevent the strap cutting into the feet.
