Description

The back support is an integral wheelchair component for appropriate seating position and trunk support. It plays an important role in increasing comfort and function for wheelchair users.

Sitting over extended periods of time can cause discomfort and accelerate the development of spinal deformities. Manual wheelchairs are usually supplied with sling-style back supports which do not provide appropriate postural support, nor adequate pressure relief, for some full-time wheelchair users. Rigid back supports are recommended for improved postural support and comfort.

Spex Seating aimed to design the Zygo back supports with suitable shapes and sizes for most active users, without any major adjustments or customisations.
