The Tarta Emys is a modular backrest featuring configurable aluminium vertebrae attached to central spring steels which can be shaped to ensure the correct positioning of the spine.  The design allows the backrest to flex giving greater freedom of movement.  The Emys is available in heights of 3, 4 or 5 vertebrae depending on the user's postural requirements.  The vertebrae are available with different contour depths to provide appropriate support.

The vertebrae are covered with breathable padding which can be removed and washed at 30°C and the spacing between them allows air flow through the backrest.

The Emys can be fitted to a rigid or foldable wheelchair.

*Please note not all size combinations are available as standard.
