Just the Facts: Complex Rehab Technology (CRT)

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.

Java Back’s little buddy: the fully-adjustable Java Decaf Back

Decaf_Java_Back_from_rear

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.
