GibbyBack

The GibbyBack is a unique back system, combining tension adjustable back support with height-adjustable trunk side supports. These features make it possible to contour the back to accommodate intermediate to complex asymmetrical spinal deviations and intermediate to complex kyphotic deviations while providing firm adjustable lateral support, allowing the user to sit balanced and upright, facilitating optimal use of their arms and hands. The back system should always be used in conjunction with a good positioning cushion to provide optimal postural support.

The GibbyBack fits on either our SullyActive or SamActive seating systems, as well as a wide range of other wheelchairs, both manual and motorised.

The GibbyBack comes with a range of seat accessory and is compatible with various seat options

GibbyBack Features

Tension Adjustable Back Straps

The back section is available in 3 different heights, which are made up of adjustable webbing straps for contouring the surface. The back is also angle adjustable through a range of 15° on the bracket allowing users who are not able to sit upright the opportunity to sit in a balanced position.

Back Contouring

Custom back contours can be created by individually adjusting the lengths of the  webbing straps. The lower straps can be tightened to provide support in the lumbar area of the spine and the upper straps can be lengthened to accommodate the curvature of the thoracic spine, particularly if the user has a spinal deformity such as a kyphosis and/or Gibbus deformity.

Trunk Side Supports

Rigid individually height adjustable side supports are designed to provide firm support on either side of the user’s trunk, helping to maintain good posture. Complex spinal deviations and asymmetrical postures can be accommodated by adjusting the height of the supports and using them to build up customised postural support.

Mounting Clamps

A set of 19mm & 22mm clamps are supplied with every back system enabling it to be mounted not only on our range of posture support seating systems, but on a wide range of different manual and motorised wheelchairs.

Covers

A removable padded cover conceals the straps and also offers a surface onto which further build-ups can be made.

Seat System Options

SullyActive Seat

The SullyActive Kids seat is a specially designed rugged posture support seating system. It is ideal for energetic and curious young children who will benefit from independent mobility to explore the world. It is suitable for ages 18 months to 5 years and can adjust to accommodate basic to intermediate postural support needs with another of additional accessory options.

SamActive Seat

The SamActive flexible posture support seating system can be configured and adjusted for adult users with intermediate to complex postural needs.
