Adjust Etac Prio for Kyphosis
In a multi-functional wheelchair, the back is usually adjusted high, covering the shoulders. Make sure the user has full contact with the back support, from the level of PSIS and up, preferably over the top of the kyphosis.
Back Support: The 3D Back Support (1) fulfills all these demands. It can be contoured both in the horizontal and vertical plane. The tension adjustable back straps (2) ensure an individual contoured shape and the soft vertical side cushions provide high comfort. Adjust the Dynamic Pelvic Support (3) in the level of PSIS with the user positioned in the active position. Wedges: The back can be supplemented with Cell Foam Wedges (4) for example if the sides need to be firmer.
Multi-Adjustable Head Support (5): It has the best settings to meet a kyphotic user´s head position. Arm Supports: Usually they need to be adjusted very low. The Narrow Arm Supports (6) can be set as low as 23 cm (9”). Tray (7): If the user has the tendency to flex forward, a tray could be a solution. The user can support the upper body with the forearms on the tray.
Tilt and Recline Positions: Combine all adjustment with carefully tried out tilt and recline settings and the chance for a better head position is considerably improved. Secure the active position with Comfort Tilt Lock (8) and Back Angle Control (9). The resting position is secured with Gas Piston Clips (10). Anti-tippers: Always check the adjustment.
