Unlike standard folding manual wheelchairs, the Strongback wheelchair by Strongback Mobility conforms to and supports the natural and healthy lumbar curve of the spine thus preventing the user from slouching forward and squeezing spinal discs with a tremendous amount of unhealthy pressure - decreasing this pressure results in healthier discs, a stronger back, and long-lasting comfort while seated.
Traditional wheelchairs are uncomfortable to sit in – even for short periods of time. The poor posture caused by the lack of lumbar support in the chairs cause discomfort and often pain.
The ergonomic curved back supports the natural lumbar curve of the spine for comfortable, upright, and healthy posture.
Our improved seat angle aligns the pelvis for proper ergonomic posture, prevents slipping and slouching forward, improves user stability, and reduces seat shear on sensitive pressure points of the buttocks.
