Etac 3A back support

Shape Up! - Reach your positioning targets

There is no other back support like the 3A.

Explore the possibilities and discover how your positioning targets are being achieved without using expensive back support systems. Customise the shape and support directly, with the user positioned in the wheelchair. You will get instant feedback and can always reshape the support as needs change.

Proximal stability is the starting point to postural control. The 3A Back Support is a tool meeting your positioning targets, based on the users individual abilities and body shape. To seek ability and improving mobility and activity. This is what we call Ability Based Seating™.

Thank you for shaping up!
