Etac Prio 3D
We are proud to present our new 3D back support system. A patented innovation that is mouldable in all directions, ideal for asymmetry and kyphosis.
Kyphosis affects the whole body
Aging affects the curvature of the spine. If the spinal curvature exceeds 45°, it is diagnosed as kyphosis. We have created a back support providing space and support in all directions for users with kyphosis and other asymmetries.
Managing to be active
Sitting in a slouched position affects the ability to be active. The head moves forward and drops, which also displaces the centre of gravity. The curved shape of the upper trunk limits the mobility of the shoulder blades, affecting the mobility of the arms. A kyphosis accelerates these symptoms. A lot of energy is used to hold the head up. The sitting position becomes unstable and the degree of activity is limited. The goal is to improve the head position and create a supportive and relaxed position, from the pelvic area to the upper trunk. This will also facilitate activity.
