Tall upper body

- Shape up in Prio 3A

Body shape Prio Head image - Image block

The 3A back can be adjusted at the lumbar angle if the individual with the tall upper body feels more balanced with the thoracic angle slightly more open.

The Back extension 3A (1) can be easily added to give an additional 6 cm of back height.

Select back cushion or back cover (2). The back support can be adjusted as high as 68 cm (27½"). Be sure to adjust the Dynamic Pelvic Support (3) in height with PSIS.

When tilting and reclining a person with a tall upper body, the weight shift can affect the chair´s stability. If required, use Gas Piston Clips (4) to reduce maximum tilt and recline angles. A user with a tall upper body can have difficulties stabilizing the trunk if the active position is too upright. Secure the active seat tilt with the Comfort Tilt Lock (5) and the seat to back angle with the Back Angle Control (6).
