Bassett Back Support Heavy Duty

SKU: PCNM4265

CAR SEAT DESIGN LEAD TO BASSETT'S LUMBAR SUPPORT

A back rest designed to be used in cars, was seized upon by Danish occupational therapists and used for patients in normal chairs and wheelchairs with excellent results.
Coorabel. (a rehabilitation hospital) obtained one of these as a prototype and it was in such demand by patients that the husband of one patient experimented with the manufacture. Now after several trial models he is producing one that is as good (if not better) then the Danish model.

MANY SEATS INVITE BACK TROUBLE

Unfortunately, there are too few well designed seats. This includes so called "easy chairs" and car seat  which may after a time contribute towards back trouble, especially in the lumber region and also aggravate existing problems because of incorrect posture which burdens the muscles and vertabrae with undue strain.

LIGHT AND EASY TO CARRY

Extremely light and portable. It weighs approx. 850 grams (1lb 14oz) and may be carried from one place to another with almost no effort.

BASSETT'S LUMBAR SUPPORT IS EASY TO USE ANYWHERE
