    Adjustable manual wheelchair backrest question?

    Hi folks – my titanium light adjustable strap has collapsed on itself again and my back is now incredibly sore. treatment at MGH right now is a little sketchy at best and in order to avoid wheelchair clinic, I'm looking for something similar that could provide some stability and relief for the time being. Everything seems to be booked out far in advance.

    Do any quads suggest different types of mid to high backrests with canes? Many choices- hard to make the call when I'm going to private pay in order to save some pain and sanity. Thoughts?

    I use a Corbac from Ride Designs. I really like it but it is not cheap.

      My girl friend had an Varilite Icon. Loved it.

        That's exactly what I'm looking for. I think will have to pay for it out-of-pocket but that's nothing compared to the pain that I'm in with my current backrest. Thanks so much for the recommendation.

          I like the matrix-pb elite. Not cheap either tho.
