Swing-away Lateral Supports

Provides fully-adjustable trunk support. Pads are available in two styles/sizes.

One of our most popular accessories, the swing-away lateral supports fit all RAZ chairs (providing you have the Adjustaback). When the laterals are not in use, or when doing a transfer, they can be folded around behind the backrest where they lock into position. Designed to be flexible, the height and between pads can be adjusted, which is particularly useful in multi-user environments, or when the user is growing.

Evaluation justifications

Lateral supports can be used for users that are not able to maintain a mid-line position. Whether that be low core strength/tone or single-sided weakness. The laterals can be adjusted to ensure the support is applied in the correct position and they can be continually adjusted if the users' position/needs change over time. Using the swing-away function, supports can be moved out of the way to ensure that when transferring into the chair the user will not be hit by the front edge of the support.
