Active wheelchair users know that it is not always easy to find a comfortable back support system for your chair. The Zygo series provides lightweight, adjustable and easily installable solutions with more freedom of movement giving them the ability go places they want without being limited by their condition!

That's because sitting for extended periods of time can be uncomfortable and increase the chances of developing spinal deformities. Manual wheelchairs usually have sling-style back support, which don't provide appropriate postural support nor adequate pressure relief.

That's why rigid back supports are the most recommended type of supports to improve postural support and comfort.

This particular Zygo model has a supportive deep contour that supports the lumbar spine and thoracic spine. This makes it suitable for users with limited trunk mobility and strength; additionally its different height options allows the shell to reach the mid-thoracic or upper-thoracic region.

It's specifically designed for individuals who:

  • Requires a solid back support to accommodate mild postural and stability needs
  • May need posterior and lateral trunk support to maintain good posture alignment and enhance function
  • Has mild to moderate torso asymmetries
  • Requires superior pressure distribution
  • May have independent self-propelling skills
  • May need to independently transfer in and out of their wheelchair
  • May need to independently install and remove the back support from the wheelchair

FUNCTIONAL BENEFITS

  • Fits to you, not just to the chair
  • Aesthetic and minimalistic
  • Compatibility with different wheelchairs
  • Easy to use and easy to adjust

SIZING GUIDE

The Zygo Back Support family implements a unique "user-focused" scripting process where the size is determined by the user size, not the wheelchair width, thereby ensuring a tailored fit to the torso.
