Soloc and the University of Cardiff are developing alternative uses for the Soloc buckle in partnership for use in the NHS
National Star has provided expert support and guidance to SoLoc Ltd so the company can launch an innovative one-handed wheelchair lap belt at Rehacare 2019, Europe’s largest trade fair for inclusive care and independent living.
SoLoc enables users to fasten and release the lap belt using one hand, promoting the independence of wheelchair users with a range of functional impairments. It can be attached for right-handed or left-handed users, and is designed to support people with hand tremors, visual impairments and limited strength and manual dexterity.
Working with students National Star initially identified the need for the belt and offered opportunities for Safety Belt Solutions, a seat belt manufacturing company, to develop a proof of concept after becoming a finalist in the NESTA Inclusive Technology Prize. What was then known as ‘Handyclix’ became SoLoc as the product was further developed over the next two years.
I'm Tony Garlick, the inventor of Soloc. I have been working on these innovative products since 2015. These are specifically designed to help people feel safe and to give them independence when using lap belts. The traditional standard buckles are difficult to use when the users have limited dexterity and strength with their hands and fingers therefore with the new SOLOC buckles they automatically align and attach using my Patented Technology.
