Icon Back System Tall supports the back to the top of the shoulders, including the scapula, which is ideal for users with decreased trunk control. The curved shell provides moderate back support. Lateral supports can be easily mounted using existing vertical shell slots. The headrests can be installed onto the aluminum shell for more positioning options.
Operating the system is as easy as opening the caps and sliding the back support out of the hardware. The caps stay in an open position until the back is removed, making it simple to remove the support with one hand or limited dexterity. The hardware guides the back support into position with minimal effort and caps lock it securely into place. Orange safety markings alert the user that a latch is open and not in the locked position. All adjustment screws are accessible from the rear of the back support or from the outside of the Cane Brackets. Adjustments can be made while the user is in the wheelchair. Once adjusted, Icon hardware stays in place. Cane Brackets clamp securely and will not slip.
The Icon Back System features an innovative rollover cushion to protect the user from contact with the edge of the shell during extension or weight shifting activities. The cushion is secured inside the cover so it stays in place. Also, the Icon Back System incorporates a Varilite air-foam floatation cushion. Sculpted foam fits the shell contour without bunching. Multi-stiffness foam is thickest along the vertebral column. Soft foam protects the sensitive areas of the spine while firmer foam supports the sides of the trunk. A two-way air valve allows air in and out of the cushion for a custom fit and adjustable comfort.
The Spacer knit fabric on the outside of the cover increases airflow between the user and the back support. Reticulated foam sewn under the spacer knit fabric provides additional air exchange plus pressure distribution. The Icon Back System cover meets ISO 7176-16 ignition resistance standard for upholstered wheelchair components.
