NXT Optima FA VC Back Rest Seating

Description

The NXT Optima VC (fixed height, Vicair Contour) back has an adjustable Vicair back cushion, ideal for tilt chairs or users with a kyphotic posture or with the potential for skin breakdown on their spine. The back cushion has eight pockets that can be individually adjusted for a customized fit or comfort and postural support. In addition, the unique “Quickfit” mounting hardware is quickly and easily installed and can be adjusted to optimize postural positioning for each individual. Quickfit provides the ultimate in adjustability and fits 1″ or ⅞” or ¾” cane diameters without shims. Quickfit has more adjustment range than most backs, including height, 5″ of depth, 25 degrees posterior/anterior angle adjustment and even rotation.

The NXT Back Support Series offers a range of contours to provide posterior, posterior lateral and posterior deep lateral support. The Scapula cut-out shape is designed to provide excellent support and comfort while enhancing the user’s natural range of motion. For optimal positioning of the pelvis, pelvic-lumbar support pads can be uniquely positioned to customize the fit for the user. In addition, the wide range of sizes and contours provide exceptional support and comfort.

Preventing pressure ulcers

It can be difficult to completely prevent pressure ulcers, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.

These include:

  • Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
  • Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – this will be done by your care team if you’re in a hospital or care home
  • Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
  • Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation

If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
