Its adjustable tension design offers control, comfort and protection with a quick, easy-to-use mounting system. The 1.75-lb. back can be precisely fit with adjustable thoraco-lumbar-pelvic supports, and straps provide almost infinite fine-tuning of posterior and lateral contours.

Amara

The Amara Therapeutic Wheelchair Back System is designed to improve comfort and support by eliminating the hammock effect of standard wheelchair backs.

The fixed and adjustable backs are made of high-density Medflex foam, while the dual-zone back has a combination of Medflex and Viscotec memory form for added comfort. All Amara backs have Vyvex-III non-shear covers. The backs are coded E2611-2612.

AGILITY Carbon Back System

AGILITY Carbon Back System

With a compression-molded, lightweight carbon fiber construction, the AGILITY Carbon combines high-strength performance with a streamlined design. With single clamps on each side, hardware is smaller, lighter and stronger than typical fixed-back hardware. Discs lock into the carbon fiber to create a solid backrest; when loosened, the discs allow the shell to rotate independently to provide 15° forward/rearward angle adjustment in 5° increments. Widths range from 14" to 18" in 1" increments.
