Planar rigid bariatric back support for minimal postural requirements, for bariatric wheelchair users up to 300kg.
The XLella Vigour Back Support is designed to support users with larger pressure distribution who require planar padding to provide support for minimal postural requirements.
The bariatric population presents specific seating challenges. Positioning the pelvis in neutral may not be possible because excessive soft tissue limits the ability to control the position of the pelvis and spine, therefore, it is essential to provide adequate pressure distribution and relief, heat and moisture control, and ultimately, comfort.
The excessive adipose tissue in the gluteal region (gluteal shelf) can also prevent bariatric users from sitting with adequate spinal support, which can contribute to back pain. Offering solutions to accommodate the unique posterior shape created by this redundant tissue is paramount.
XLella bariatric range consists of back supports and cushions, which span from 22” to 28” width, with options for custom items up to 32”.
The XLella back supports provide an off-the-shelf solution, with integrated adjustability and adaptability for potential changing needs. These are available in three different styles to meet the individual requirements and body shapes of the user, XLella Vigour, XLella Classic, and XLella². All models are transport certified and have a weight capacity of up to 300kg.
