Tarta®, the postural backrest unique in the world

The Tarta Design Wheelchair backrests are unique in their style, which flexes and twist to accommodate all wheelchair user’s movements.

The right support for every movement

Original is the first flexible postural backrest capable of adapting to multiple needs. Its modular structure allows for endless modifications and millimetric adjustments that ensure it adapts perfectly to the user’s shape and needs. Original is made up of vertebrae and ribs, like the human skeleton. The vertebrae allow you to increase or reduce their length and follow a scoliotic curve. The ribs can be changed in position, tilted, bent and removed. Removable, machine-washable cushions ensure prolonged comfort when sitting. Original is the result of more than 30 years of experience from engineers and orthopaedic specialists and is designed to break down barriers.


Comfortable and lightweight

Cushions are made of foam rubber, covered with a technical fabric, machine washable and breathable for maximum comfort. Using aeronautical aluminium ensures the backrest is extraordinarily lightweight and extremely resistant.


Original® has been designed to suit every need and can be customised in all its components: from the slats’ inclination to the vertebrae’s orientation.


The spaces between the slats favour air passage for a pleasant feeling of freshness. The breathable technical fabrics used for the cushions contribute to the pleasant effect.


The harmonic steel of the column and the modular structure of Original® leave you free to decide where the backrest should flex and where it should provide more support.


The backrest torsion allows your daily movements to be carried out in absolute freedom without giving up the backrest support.



Available in 3 different heights (4/5/6 vertebrae). The size must be chosen according to the user’s height, pathology, and the amount of support needed. The low backrest is suitable for people with good torso control and balance, while the high backrest is designed for people who need more support. The backrest can be customised in the custom version by adding or removing vertebrae to increase or decrease its height.


The backrest is available in 4 widths, Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large, from a minimum of 28 cm to a maximum of 45 cm. The ribs of the backrest are made of aluminium and can be moulded as required to conform perfectly to the user’s measurements. We recommend you consider the user’s T-shirt size and select the corresponding backrest.


The backrest is available in two different fits depending on the support and containment needed according to the morphology and control of the user’s torso. The more restraining slats can be positioned higher or lower than the backrest, symmetrically or asymmetrically, depending on requirements.

Extravagant. Uncompromising. Coloured. Stylish

Freedom of movement

Flexibility is the feature that makes Tarta Design specialist seating wheelchair backrests unique, guaranteeing correct posture while allowing the user to move around and have an active, unrestricted life.

Just as our spine is flexible and elastic to allow us to bend forward and backwards, sideways and in torsion, so too do Tarta Design specialist seating wheelchair backrests to support and sustain these movements and help you return to the correct position once you have made a move. You no longer have to choose between posture and movement.

The possibility of movement allows the user to carry out movements and exercises that keep the muscles of the torso active and exercise their strength and elasticity, promoting control and stimulating balance.

Well-being breathability

People with mobility problems find themselves spending a lot of time sitting, in different daily situations and over different seasons, with little mobility and often in varying health conditions. In order to be able to live these different situations to the fullest, it is necessary to have a comfortable seat that suits one’s needs and provides safety, combining comfort and an excellent microclimate.

Tarta Design specialist seating wheelchair backrests has focused its attention on the structure, shape and materials of its products in order to achieve a unique result of comfort and freshness. Controlling the microclimate is also crucial in reducing the risk of pressure ulcers.

The Quick Reference Guide for Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Treatment developed by NPUAP, EPUAP and PPPIA identifies a negative microclimate as an important risk factor for pressure ulcers and recommends its control as a preventative therapy.
