A dynamic upper body support designed to provide comfort and postural support for the trunk. Available in a range of sizes and styles

General Details

Extra product information

The trunk support has a stabilising panel designed to limit over-stretching and upwards movement. The fabric of the support allows a deliberate rate of stretch to allow the user some controlled movements.

The trunk support has quick release swivel buckles located at the base on both sides of the support. These allow the support to be removed by lifting it over the user's head and does not alter the length of straps ready for placing the support back onto the user. The swivel buckles also allow the straps to pivot and follow the line of tension without puckering the front pad of the support. The models with a front zipper allow the support to be removed by undoing the zipper and opening up the front of the support. Alternatively, the zip can be left closed and the support removed by using the quick release swivel buckles.

Method of Use

SELECTING A SYSTEM
The size of the required shoulder harness system is determined by the outside shoulder width of the user. If the shoulder width falls between two sizes, consider other factors such as growth, weight changes and clothing.

INSTALLATION
Installation should be carried out by a suitably qualified technician, under the guidance of a health professional.

The top strap assembly attaches to the posterior surface of the back support. The lower strap assembly is attached with Cinch-Mount of Flat Mount end-fittings. These allow precise adjustments when fitting the lower strap to the frame. Used in conjunction with the Frame Saver clamp, a variety of suitable mounting locations can be created without the need to drill holes into the wheelchair frame.

CORRECT PLACEMENT OF THE SUPPORT
The upper strap on the support should be mounted level with or slightly above the shoulders, to prevent the support from pulling the shoulders downwards. If the upper straps are positioned too wide they may tend to fall off the user's shoulders. The lower strap should be mounted so that it is across the lower rib cage, but not below the rib cage.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE SUPPORT
Ensure the adjustment straps are tightened daily to maintain the user's position against the back support. A health professional should regularly monitor the use of the back support and ensure that the positioning and use remains appropriate to the user's needs and body shape. Any redness or irritation from the support should be reported to a health professional immediately.

CAUTION
Anterior supports that are worn at sternum height present a choking hazard. Always use under competent supervision.
