Tension (adjustable) Back Straps
The back section is available in 3 different heights, which are made up of adjustable Velcro straps for contouring the surface. The back is also angle adjustable through a range of 15° on the bracket allowing users who are not able to sit upright the opportunity to sit in a balanced position.
A removable padded cover conceals the straps and also offers a surface onto which further build-ups can be made.
Custom back contours can be created by individually adjusting the lengths of the velcro straps. The lower straps can be tightened to provide support in the lumbar area of the spine and the upper straps can be lengthened to accommodate the curvature of the thoracic spine, particularly if the user has a spinal deformity such as a kyphosis and/or Gibbus deformity.
Trunk Side Supports
Rigid individually height adjustable side supports are designed to provide firm support on either side of the user’s trunk, helping to maintain good posture. Complex spinal deviations and asymmetrical postures can be accommodated by adjusting the height of the supports and using them to build up customised postural support.
A set of 19mm & 22mm clamps are supplied with every back system enabling it to be mounted not only on Shonaquip’s posture support wheelchairs, but on a wide range of different manual and motorised wheelchairs.
