Short Description

A lightweight and adjustable, rigid frame backrest for children. It is designed to replace the upholstery of a manual or powered wheelchair. It can be adjusted to suit individual postural needs. It attaches to the back canes through a mounting system which allows the adjustment of backrest height, angle and depth, as well as rotational and asymmetrical adjustments. The backrest fits wheelchairs from 10" to 15". Available in a range of sizes.

More Details

The Decaf Java back support has been designed to enable the user to quickly, easily, and independently optimise pelvic support and balance the trunk in a way that mimics the normal rhythm and movement of the body. It aims to provide the user with comfort and stability at rest, and less interference with function and mobility.

Features and adjustments
* The backrest is attached to the wheelchair through the use of the mounting system, Flex-Loc mounting, which has multiple axes and allows the backrest height, angle and depth to be adjusted independent of the backrest's mounting position on the wheelchair back canes.
* The Flex-Loc mounting also allows for rotational and asymmetrical adjustments of the backrest.
* The Flex-Loc mounting offers permanent or quick release attachment of the backrest.
* Under quick release configuration, the backrest can be removed with one hand.

* Plastic shell with foam padding and metal adjustable back stays for gluteal support.
* Metal hardware which clamps on to the back canes of the wheelchair.

Frame material
* Hard moulded plastic shell
* Adjustable postural inserts
* Foam padded overlay
* Metal adjustable width clamps for varying tube widths

* Removable and washable spacer fabric cover
* Breathable (vapour permeable) with two way stretch
* Meets all (USA) fire regulations and standards
* Custom covers available as an option on request


* Because of their potential to exacerbate deformity, postural support products need regular monitoring to ensure that their positioning and use remains appropriate to the users needs and body shape.
