Raz’s exclusive modular design allows us to mix and match components to better fit our clients. One of the most common configurations we provide is a having a back frame that is a different width than the seat / base frame.
What are the benefits?
- A back frame with less spacing between the arm supports provides better positioning for thinner clients who require a chair that can be used over a toilet. The most common configuration is a 16”W back frame on an 18”W base frame / seat frame.
- For self-propel chairs that are used over a toilet, a narrower back frame can provide more efficient propulsion because the arm supports are more medially positioned and therefore obstruct the client’s range-of-motion to a lesser degree.
- For bigger clients, rather than going to a wider chair, they can chose a less costly option of going to a wider back frame to give them more space between the arms.
What combinations are possible?
The back frame can be 2” or 4” narrower, or 2” wider than the seat / base frame.
