“Kinetic Balance means comfort,
convenience, and innovation.”

Importance of Correct Harnessing

The importance of correct harnessing should not be underestimated; without it, the client’s pre-existing conditions could worsen and new disorders could develop. Proper harnessing is imperative to both aid normal growth and development and for the occupant’s own (and others) safety.

Why Kinetic Balance?

Kinetic Balance harnessing was founded in 2009 as a collaboration between sports and rehabilitation professionals. They created a range of harnessing which combined their knowledge of individual seating solutions with the latest technology in sports and water sports. It is this innovative approach which makes their harnessing so unique.
