Retroback® Back Support System

Unique Clip On / Clip Off Design

Most back supports require that you remove the existing upholstery and replace it with a solid back support through the use of tools and mounting hardware. Not the case with Retroback. Simply clip Retroback onto the existing sling upholstery and lift it off every time a wheelchair needs to be folded or stored. No tools or hardware needed!

Durable Yet Lightweight

This rugged back support system weighs only 3 pounds (1 kg), making it easy to attach and remove from a wheelchair. The removable, water-resistant cover is made of a flexible, durable, washable fabric.

Improves Comfort and Supports Posture

Retroback also provides support and comfort with only minor compromise to seat depth since the back support is positioned between the wheelchair back posts. The simple yet functional design provides rigidity to compensate for sagging sling wheelchair back upholstery, while increasing sitting tolerance and reducing lower back fatigue.

 

APPLICATIONS

The Retroback Back Support System is most effective for:

- users who require basic posture support and comfort

- users whose mobility is minimally or moderately impaired

- facilities who use products with multiple patients
