    Kyphotic Back Supports with Back Support Lamination and Lateral Wedges **Measurements are required with order

    The Kyphotic Back Supports are always made to be resident specific. Each KYPHOTIC BACK comes with a set of LATERAL WEDGES which velcro on and can be removed or repositioned. These devices are manufactured with an area cut out to accommodate the bony protuberance of the resident’s Kyphotic spine. These devices have a solid insert, cushioned by the layering of various grades of HR and Visco polyurethane foams. These combinations provide support, pressure-redistribution, shockabsorbing, and body-molding properties along the entire affected spinal region. Used in conjunction with a reclined drop seat and the proper seating cushion, the Kypho-Back works well for those individuals who “C” shape forward in a wheelchair.
