To accommodate for a kyphosis, the upper Velcro straps shall provide sufficient space, preventing the user from being pushed forward.
Be sure to check the seat to back angle with the pelvic position and tighten the strap in level with PSIS. Adjust the lumbar angle to obtain the best possible balanced head and trunk position.
To add lateral support, use the Plush Wedges (1). Also the small Cell Foam Wedges (2) provide stability. They can be placed below the Plush Wedges (1).
For further lateral stability, use the Side Cushions (3), supported by Straight Side Stops (4). Check the user´s propulsion abilities. Smaller rear wheels can facilitate the arm movements.
