- Hold the Hugger horizontally. It can be oriented either with the straps facing forwards, or towards the patient depending on the individualâs ability to remove the Hugger.
- Place the Hugger flat across the patientâs lap and release the Hook and Loop attachment straps.
- If necessary, compress each side of the Hugger, squeezing it between the armrests until the Hugger lies flat on the patientâs lap.
- Adjust the position of the Hugger so that it is snug, yet comfortable and non-restrictive for the patient.
- Attach the Hook and Loop strap around the wheelchair arm frame to secure the Hugger in place.
- To remove the EZ Release Hugger or Self-Releasing Hugger, pull on the easy to grasp loop straps to release the Hook and Loop. You can also release the Self-Releasing Hugger by simply having the patient stand up.
