Just got my new chair with this back on it 48 hours ago so don't really know how it will hold up but so far it does give me the support I need with the low back issues that I have. I am a bi-lateral above the knee amputee and full time manual wheelchair user so I spend all my waking hours in my chair and a supportive back is something that I must have.
