The best back support for users of manual tilt-in-space wheelchairs and powerchairs
Excellent pressure redistribution, comfort and support make this Vicair Multifunctional O2 back support cushion perfect for use in a large variety of situations. It can be used in several back systems and in tilt-in-space chairs with adjustable seat depth. The cushion is easily fixed onto the solid back support by hook and loop strips.
Supports different postures
Follows body’s spine alignment
Provides optimal pressure redistribution
With the Vicair Back Connector, the Multifunctional O2 Back can also be used in adjustable tension backs such as the Vicair Strap Back. Although it automatically adapts to the body’s contours, the cushion can also be adjusted for optimal positioning while the user is still leaning against it.
The inner cushion is made up of zippered compartments. Each compartment is filled with a specific number of triangular, air-filled SmartCells™. Strips of Velcro tape are fitted on the back of the cushion cover to attach it to the wheelchair back shell.
The outer cover is made of Comfair, a breathable, two-way stretchable fabric. The outer cover is zipped onto the inner cushion.
Adjusting the cushion filling
Each Vicair cushion has its unique filling grade, depending on size and model. If necessary, the filling grade of the cushion can be adjusted by removing or adding SmartCells™ from the various compartments of the cushion. The label attached to the inner cover can find the default filling grade.
Using the Academy Multi-Functional Back may affect the static and dynamic behaviour of the wheelchair. Check and test the balance and stability of the wheelchair.
Reduce the risk of pressure sores
The Vicair Multifunctional O2 back is a wheelchair back support cushion that helps prevent pressure ulcers. It is also a high-quality addition to a pressure ulcer treatment plan (stage I-IV).
100% machine washable and breathable for optimal hygiene and perfect temperature and moisture regulation.
