Lateral Support Pads, custom curved to patient’s body, pair

● ¼” Aluminum internal structure.

● Use with CMP breakaway brackets only.

● Using a flexi-curve, you provide us with the template you want to support your patient and we will duplicate it in a curved support pad.

● The curved supports act as hands to hold the trunk upright.  The finished height of the pad will be 4”.

● The pads are 1-1/4” thick and are padded with a dense closed cell foam.  The brackets used will allow height and width adjustments when used with a solid back, which is not provided.  The back should be 1" or 1-3/4” thick. The brackets can mount in front or behind the back with 1” hole spacing center to center in solid back for height adjustment.  

● Picture illustrates how to take template. MUST PROVIDE TEMPLATE WITH ORDER FORM

A.  Patient sits as upright as possible, back in seat against a flat solid back. 

B.  The flexicurve edge is placed at a 90 degree angle against the solid back and against the lateral rib side of the user at the position you want to support the trunk.

C.  Bend the flexicurve around the lateral rib side with full contact against the user, leaving 2-4” before reaching the vertical mid sternal line.Mark on the flexicurve where it stops at least 2” from the mid sternal line.  Holding the end structure in place, place it on a sheet of paper that has a 90 degree angle drawn on it.  Place the lateral side of the bend parallel to the horizontal line.  The vertical line is = to the solid back. Place the end section of the flexicurve that originally contacted the solid back, at a 90 degree angle perpendicular to the vertical line.

 ● Front of bend at least 2” lateral the mid sternum

 ● Mark on the paper if the bend was taken on the individual’s right or left side.  Be careful not to confuse your left/right sides from the device user. Trace the inside curve that contacted the patient on the paper.  We will need this paper to duplicate the curve in the pad.

The right & left sides may differ – so take a template of each side.
