For your reference in advocating for protecting access to equipment for all CRT users, this guide was developed by NRRTS and their CRT user coalition, Unite4CRT. Be sure to contact your member of Congress to ensure that they understand how important CRT is to the independence and health of wheelchair users. Tell your story to bring it home.
Soft (as a bunny!): For a more forgiving user interface, an optional soft, open-cell polyurethane foam insert is now available as an alternative to the firm, breathable composite foam liner.
Protection and comfort: Supplementary reliefs help improve protection and comfort at sensitive areas.

The battle continues…
The 25th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 2015 highlighted the continued need to fulfill the promise of that legislation.

“I always wondered why somebody doesn’t do something about that.
Then I realized I was somebody.”

A properly selected and fitted back support can help a wheelchair user maintain their balance and best position on their cushion, resulting in the stability needed for increased freedom of movement and independence.
Accurate support of the trunk can also help reduce the stresses of pressure and shear on the cushion, contributing to good skin outcomes.
Shown here, designed specifically for pediatric users (or very narrow adults), the Java Decaf Back
’s patented bio-mechanical design provides the flexibility to accurately fit both the trunk and pelvis for support, comfort and enhanced mobility. The Decaf Back fits any wheelchair 10-14″ in width. The highly adjustable hardware and personalized contour at the pelvis help to provide balanced support and freedom of movement.
