Dreamline Sidewinder Suspension System
The Sidewinder Suspension System adds a dynamic function to any Dreamline Support, S3, STX, and Contour backrest, without requiring modification to the wheelchair frame and maintaining the adjustability of the backrest.
The dynamic resistance levels can be easily adjusted by exchanging elastomer pads or changing the set-up position on the backrest.
According to RESNA’s position on the Application of Dynamic Seating*, a dynamic back support can help to reduce pain, increase seating tolerance, lower energy consumption of the user, decrease injury, decrease the incidence of equipment breakage, and increase function.
AdjustabilityThe backrest retains its width, height, depth, and angle adjustability.
Replaceable elastomer padsThe energy-absorbing pads can be changed to alter resistance levels.
Travel & Tilt LockThe system enables the backrest to be locked and unlocked for safe travel.
