Adjust Etac Cross 5 for a Short Upper Body

Check the seat depth. It can be shortened from the front seat upholstery. Foot Supports that can be set higher are an option. Aim to adjust the back height below the shoulder blades, angle the seat to back and lumbar angles to provide a supportive position.

If the user feels pressure towards the buttocks, caused by the back rails, Cell Foam Wedges (1) placed under the cover can reduce the pressure. Ensure that all Velcro Straps below PSIS are set with a loose tension (2). If the Arm Supports are too high, the attachments on the frame sides can be moved to the lower position (3).


1. Wedges, Cell Foam
These wedges are slightly wider but lower than the Plush Wedges. They attach to the back cover with included self adhesive Velcro.

2. Tension Adjustable Back Straps
Contour the Back Support with the Tension Adjustable Back Straps to support and follow the curve of the spine. The back straps below PSIS should always be set with a loose tension to provide the user space for the buttocks.

3. Arm Support Attachment
The attachments can be lowered 5 cm (2") on the frame.
