The Icon Tall Wheelchair Back System features Varilite’s industry-leading air-foam floatation technology that combines the support and stability of a foam backrest with the pressure distribution properties of an air backrest.

The sculpted foam fits the outer shell contour without bunching and the multi-stiffness foam is thick along the vertebral column, softer around the sensitive areas of the spine, and firmer on the sides of the trunk. The two-way air valve allows for adjustments to the amount of air in the back cushion for a truly custom fit.

The VariLock hardware makes operation uncomplicated and offers a wide range of seat depth adjustments and the posterior or anterior depth can be increased by reversing hardware components. Equipped with width and height adjustable hardware that feature all the same size screws that are accessible from the rear of the back means quick adjustments can be made with only one tool all while remaining in your wheelchair! The back support is easily removed even for those with limited hand dexterity.

The Tall version of the Icon Back System is ideal for users needing full thoracic support as well as those with tilt-recline wheelchair systems. The curved shell features space to add lateral supports in the vertical shell slots or headrests if more positioning options are necessary.

A breathable, spacer knit fabric on the replaceable cover increases air flow and wicks away moisture keeping you cool and dry and because it's machine washable cleaning up spills is a breeze.
