Factors to Consider

Due to their potential to exacerbate deformity, postural support products need regular monitoring to ensure that their positioning and use remains appropriate to the users needs and body shape.
If back is moved rearward from neutral position, the maximum lateral openings will decrease due to interference with the chair canes.
