Built with the user, caregiver, clinician and technician in mind, the Icon™ Mid Back System provides the best solution for those who demand fast installation, adjustment versatility, and simple operation. The Icon™ Mid Back attaches to the wheelchair using innovative adjustable VariLock™ hardware, and includes a VARILITE® air-foam floatation cushion for superior comfort.
Operating the system is as easy as opening the caps and sliding the back support out of the hardware. The caps stay in an open position until the back is removed, making it simple to remove the support with one hand or limited dexterity. The hardware guides the back support into position and the caps lock securely into place. Orange safety markings alert the user that a cap is open and not in the locked position.
Adjusting Angle, Depth, Width and Height of Icon™ Back System hardware is simple and easy. All adjustment screws are accessible from the rear of the back support or from the outside of the Cane Brackets. Adjustments can be made while the user is in the wheelchair.
Once adjusted, Icon hardware stays in place. Cane Brackets clamp securely and will not slip. The innovative Adjuster Plate mechanism for recline adjustment is positive locking to prevent the back support from moving during Activities of Daily Living or other times when heavy loads are placed on it.
Operating the system is as easy as opening the slide caps and sliding the back support out of the hardware. Slide caps stay in an open position until the back is removed, making it simple to remove the support with one hand or limited dexterity. The hardware guides the back support into position with minimal effort and locks it securely into place. Orange safety markings alert the user that a cap is open and not in the locked position.
Spacer knit fabric on the outside of the cover increases air-flow between the user and the back support. Reticulated foam sewn under the spacer knit fabric provides additional air exchange plus pressure distribution The Icon™ Back System cover meets ISO 7176-16 ignition resistance standard for upholstered wheelchair components. The cover is machine washable.
VARILITE® PAL™ Swing-Away Thoracic supports are designed to complement the Icon™ Mid Back. PAL™ (Positive Action Lateral) supports allow hinge angle, pad rotation, and horizontal pad adjustments for a precise fit. All PAL™ swing-away lateral supports include a neoprene protective cover that attaches easily to the PAL™ push button hinge. Fixed lateral supports are available for situations when a swing-away lateral is not required. Fixed lateral supports consist of shell bracket, pad bracket and pad.
Users who need extra support for correct positioning can utilize the PSIS Block or Supplemental Lateral Supports attached to the shell of their Icon™ Back System. These supports can be positioned within the shell using hook and loop attachment. The PSIS Block and Supplemental Lateral Supports can be added as an accessory to any Icon™ Back System. The PSIS (posterior superior iliac spine) Block provides support to the sacrum at the PSIS level, promoting anterior pelvic tilt and spinal extension. The Supplemental Lateral Pads help users who lean to one side maintain an upright position.
Users needing extra coverage between the back support and wheelchair seat can purchase a modesty kit that attaches to the shell of the back system and the seat of the wheelchair. Modesty kits provide extra coverage for the user, while appearing integrated into the back support.
