NYOrtho CurveFit Wheelchair Support
Patients with spinal conditions that alter the spine's natural curvature.
The NYOrtho CurveFit Wheelchair Support offers a customizable backrest for wheelchairs, adjusting its curvature to align with the patient’s unique spinal shape, providing tailored support. This design not only reduces pain and discomfort by ensuring even weight distribution but also encourages extended sitting, benefiting those attending events, traveling, or working. Moreover, it can aid respiratory function in severe kyphosis cases and foster increased social interaction due to enhanced comfort. Being an attachable accessory, it’s a cost-effective solution, eliminating the need for an entirely new custom wheelchair.
Various spinal conditions alter the spine’s natural curvature, leading to discomfort and abnormal posture. Kyphosis, characterized by an excessive outward curve, and scoliosis, a sideways curvature, can either be congenital or develop later in life. Lordosis involves an exaggerated inward lumbar curve. Ankylosing spondylitis is an arthritis type that results in vertebrae fusion, leading to a forward-stooped posture. Consult a healthcare professional before making mobility and support equipment decisions.
