Seat & Back Support Units

What they do and how to choose

Combined seat and back units are often purchased as a 'go anywhere', multi-purpose, portable, back support. Because the seat and back are linked by some form of hinge, they work well in theatre seats, car, bus or train seats, church pews, sofas and armchairs. In fact anwhere where the user needs comfortable, consistent support for the back and pelvis. They can act as a 'raft' in soft domestic seating, helping to prevent the user from vanishing into a soft sofa or chair.

Dimensions given are H (height of back), W (width from side to side), D (depth from front to back) and T (maximum thickness of seat or back).
