DuoBack Split Seat

The split seat feature of the DuoBack Split Seat has been specificially designed to make life more comfortable for anybody who has limited or no flex in the hips or knees.  We recognise that a standard seat causes challenges when you cannot bend your knees or rotate your hips forwards.  Our experience knows that a standard seat means that you will perch on the front of the seat so as to enable you sit with your hips or knees at a comfortable angle.  You adapt your posture according to your individual situation.


Problem overcome, except it is going to mean that by sitting further forward on the seat, you then have little or no back support! 


This is where the split seat comes in.


Both the left and right front quarter sections of the seat can be lowered.  This allows you to sit back against the back rest of the chair, thus supporting your back AND you are also able to have your leg extended out in a position that you find comfortable.  The better ergonomic solution, we hope you'll agree.  If you need to open the angle of your pelvis even further, the DuoBack Split Seat comes as standard with an independent forward tilt to the seat, this opens the pelvic angle but rolling the hips forwards.


If both of the left and right front quarter sections of the seat are lowered, the chair can also accommodate someone who has a short upper leg measurement, whereby sitting on a standard seat will also mean that they sit forwards to perch on the front of the seat, thus negating any support to the back from the back rest of the chair.
