The Cozie Back with Swing Away Laterals is designed to give the patient a pressure-redistributing wheelchair back without taking up any of the seating area of the wheelchair. The wheelchair back sling is removed and replaced with the Cozie Back. Because it has G.I.V.E. (Gel Infused Visco Elastic) as its substrate, the Cozie Back moulds to the patient’s back. It is excellent for patients with potential skin integrity problems, slight kyphosis, or rounded shoulders. It’s also wonderful for just plain comfort!
- This is a padded back support which is a REPLACEMENT for a wheelchair back sling.
- The Swing Away Laterals (SALS) attach to the wheelchair “canes” after the sling back is removed and replaced with the Cozie Back.
- The Swing Away Lateral Supports are curved to “cup and support” the upper torso. By simply pressing a button, they swing out of the way allow-ing the patient better access to the wheelchair.
- There are 3 standard size options for the Cozie Back with Swing Away Laterals to fit 16", 18" or 20" wide wheelchairs.
