The Java Wheelchair Back from Ride Designs features a patented biomechanical design that allows for optimal pelvic support and trunk balance while supporting the normal movements of the body.
The curved aluminum shell can be flexed specifically to support unique body contours without the loss of seat depth to provide proper contact through the pelvis, lumbar and thoracic spine.
This foam wheelchair back is available in several widths, three heights and two contour depths to accommodate a wide range of body types and positioning needs.
Height Options (where the top of the shell sits):
- Regular = Below the scapulae
- Tall = Mid Scapulae
- Grande = Top of Shoulder
- Regular = 3"
- Deep = 6"
The quick-release hardware allows for easy installation and removal of the back for transport and storage. The lighter, compact and more rigid hardware offers super easy adjustments of 20° in back angle (5° forward and 15° backward), 2" of seat depth and -1" to +2" of back width.
The outer cover is made from breathable spacer fabric that promotes airflow and helps to dissipate heat and moisture to keep you cool and dry. For optimum comfort and support, pair your Ride Designs Java wheelchair back with the Java wheelchair cushion!
