There are many styles of back cushions that can be utilised on a chair. Some chairs have a fixed back which means the back cushion is stitched onto the chair and cannot be interchanged. Other chairs have removeable back cushions so there is a choice of back options available to manage posture and support.
Individual fibre filled waterfall cushions, each of which are fully adjustable to accommodate maximum postural support. The waterfall back can be useful for those with mild kyphosis, scoliosis and reduced muscle mass on their back.
Another classic design of back style and again mainly used in the domestic environment. These two cushions are individually fibre filled and can be adjusted for the user by a zipped area on each cushion.
The button back is a classic design used mainly on chairs for the home. The cushion is one piece and cannot be manipulated for positioning.
A fibre filled back with lateral support, which can be useful for those who have limited trunk control or balance. It can help those with early stages of neurological conditions such as MS or a stroke survivor.
A foam filled back providing firmer lateral support with a fibre filled headrest. The firm lateral support maintains midline trunk alignment which can be useful for those post stroke or early to mid-stage neurological conditions.
The profile headrest conforms to the head and shoulders which can be useful for individuals with limited neck control, with the waterfall back providing adjustable lumbar support.
This back offers fibre filled cushions to provide head, shoulder and trunk support, which can be useful for older users who have lost some muscle control, supporting them in a good postural position with the head in a neutral position. This back can also be used for early stages of neurological conditions to maintain good positioning without restricting activities.
A firm foam lateral back cushion with fibre filled profile headrest can provide support for those who have limited trunk control or balance. The profile headrest can provide support to keep the head in good midline alignment which can be useful for those with early stages of neurological conditions such as MS or a stroke survivor with limited residual impairments.
