Etac Prio multi-functional Wheelchair

Prio is the only multi-functional wheelchair that offers a dynamic pelvic support. The support is deactivated while resting and reactivated in the active position. The dynamic pelvic support is only one example of Prio´s innovative functions that actually improve sitting tolerance over time

By changing seat and back angles and adjusting the elevating leg supports, you can vary body position and pressure points, which is important for the seating comfort. But Etac Prio does more than this, the wheelchair achieves a high level of comfort through it's dynamic features.


Kyphosis affects the whole body

Aging affects the curvature of the spine. If the spinal curvature exceeds 45°, it is diagnosed as kyphosis. We have created a back support providing space and support in all directions for users with kyphosis and other asymmetries.

Managing to be active

Sitting in a slouched position affects the ability to be active. The head moves forward and drops, which also displaces the centre of gravity. The curved shape of the upper trunk limits the mobility of the shoulder blades, affecting the mobility of the arms. A kyphosis accelerates these symptoms. A lot of energy is used to hold the head up. The sitting position becomes unstable and the degree of activity is limited. The goal is to improve the head position and create a supportive and relaxed position, from the pelvic area to the upper trunk. This will also facilitate activity.
