Solara 3G

Solara 3G

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2016:

You can do the “tape” test, where you place tape on the person’s back at the level of the top of the back support. Then when placing this backrest angle into recline, the tape remains visible on the seated individual’s back. This indicates that the Solara 3G’s backrest angle and backrest contribute to the reduction of shear and friction. When seated in other similar manual wheelchairs, the backrest angle reclines/opens, and accommodation is not made during this movement. This results in the individual and the backrest no longer supported, with the head often coming off the backrest and the lateral thoracic pads becoming “earmuffs.”
