Stabilizing belt for jumping recommendations

I am 26, in fair condition, well enough to exercise and want to add jumping to my exercise program but the controller and two batteries aren't held stable well enough with anything I have. Does anyone have suggestions? 

 

Thanks

Take a look at medi-materials.com.  The Freedom Undervest may help you with this.  With the proper fit, all of your LVAD equipment will be secured within the inside pouch.  You won’t have to worry about your driveline or power lead cables, either.  The fit should be snug, but not uncomfortably tight.  Usually, it’s best get one shirt size smaller than you normally wear.  They are on sale for $39.95 for the rest of the month.

The Under Armour 6 pad football girdle will work for you if you can get over it being called a girdle! If football players can live with it so can I.

 

i put the girdle inside out to make it easier to get everything out when finished. I put a battery in each thigh pocket and the controller in the hip pocket. In the winter the controller can go in the cup pocket. This is a great way to free you up to do anything. I wear mine when I play golf or goon a long walk. Places all the weight below your belt instead of on your back. Amazon carries them along with many local stores. They are mighty snug but they need to be in order to hold the weight of the batteries. https://www.amazon.com/Under-Armour-6-Pad-Football-Girdle/dp/B00GRAJDUA/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1538411957&sr=8-9&keywords=Football%2Bgirdle&th=1&psc=1

My mother in law is extremely petite and her bag is so heavy and is uncomfortable on her shoulders. Any suggestions?

Does any one make their own LVAD clothes?  I'd would appreciate any advice or patterns that work for you.

 Is the battery clip suppose to be at the bottom of a pocket?
