Broad shoulders

- Shape up in Prio 3A


In a multi-functional wheelchair broad shoulders can be an issue, since the back support for a less active user is adjusted higher, due to the tilt and recline function. To prevent the user from feeling the pressure of the back rails, you can use two simple accessories: the Back Widening or the Pressure Distributors. Using any of these you don´t have to go to a wider seat width to accommodate broad shoulders.

Back support: Use the lumbar angling on the 3A back support to open up the angle and allow space for the thoracic spine and the broad shoulders. If a higher back is needed, add the Back Extension (1) to create an extra 6 cm back height.



3. Back Widening

Create a wider back and distribute pressure from the back profile. Sold as a kit complete with additionally two tension adjustable straps.
Only for use in combination with seat width 40 cm and 45 cm.

10. Comfort Tilt Lock

This function ensures the same preset tilt position. There are four alternative settings (0°, 4°, 8° or 12°). Choose one position that is frequently used, for activity or rest. Not in combination with Etac Prio electrical tilt.
