Moldable Support

U.S. Patent No. 6,733,074
Standard on all Acta-Back and Acta-Embrace back supports, moldable stays allow for easy on- the-spot customization to accommodate a variety of spinal curvatures. Stays are located inside the zippered cover, behind the foam cushion surface, yet remain accessible while the user is seated.
Moldable stays allow for continual support of changing conditions and can easily accommodate rotation with offset placement well before trying to rotate the back support.
Mild to aggressive support can be achieved anywhere from the thoracic down to the lower- lumbar region. Use the stays to encourage proper positioning of the pelvis through input to the lower lumbar region.
Stays prevent high peak pressures by providing additional cushion contact with the user unlike traditional planar back supports. The moldable stays create a support surface unique to the individual.
Each back support comes standard with 2 moldable stays for multiple set up options.
