The Java Back’s patented biomechanical design provides the flexibility to easily and independently optimize pelvic support and balance the trunk, supporting the normal rhythm and movement of the body. The user experiences comfort and stability at rest, and no interference with function and mobility. The Java Back is most effective when coupled with a Ride® wheelchair cushion to aid in postural control and help reduce risk for tissue injury. The Decaf Back shares all the adjustable features of the Java Back, plus a few extras, to meet the specific needs of growing and developing children.
Adjust to fit unique contours
Most other back supports are flat from top to bottom. Attempts to adjust a flat wheelchair back with accessories can result in loss of seat depth and compromised trunk contact and support. In contrast, the Java Back can be flexed specifically to support the unique contours of the user’s body without loss of seat depth and to provide accurate supportive contact through the pelvis, lumbar and thoracic spine.
Offers width, depth and height adjustments
The Java Back is available in multiple widths, in three heights and two depths. Back heights are regular (below scapulae), tall (mid-scapulae), and grande (top of shoulder), all in depths of either three or six inches
Adjust quickly for accurate fittings
Height, depth, angle, pelvic support, and trunk balance can all be adjusted independently. The new, more compact Java Back quick-release hardware offers 20 degrees of back angle adjustability, two inches of seat depth adjustability, and two inches of back width adjustability. Only the Ride Custom Back, which can be made to fit virtually any size and contour, provides greater accuracy of fit.
Attaches simply and easily for daily use
The Java Back is lightweight and easily removed from the wheelchair, even with limited hand function. A robust locking mechanism safely secures the back to the wheelchair, yet is easy to release.
Helps improve heat and moisture build up
A spacer fabric cover promotes air circulation and wicks moisture away from the back for improved comfort and sitting tolerance.
