Title
(EN) BACKREST ASSEMBLY FOR A WHEELCHAIR
(FR) ENSEMBLE DOSSIER POUR FAUTEUIL ROULANT
Abstract
(EN)
A contoured backrest (24) for a wheelchair (A) may be moved to and retained in different positions and thus accommodates individuals of varying size and disabilities. The backrest (24) carries clamps (52, 70) to which outriggers (40, 42) are fitted, and these outriggers (40, 42) extend transversely across the back face of the backrest (24). The outriggers (40, 42) are laterally adjustable to accommodate wheelchairs of different widths. They have offset ends (54, 56) beyond the sides of the backrest (24), and these ends (54, 56) fit into brackets (44, 46) on back posts (16) that are part of the wheelchair (A). When the clamps (52, 70) are released, the outriggers (40, 42) may be rotated. This enables the positon of the backrest (24) to be adjusted forwardly and backwardly, upwardly and downwardly, and angularly.
(FR)
Un dossier ergonomique (24) pour un fauteuil roulant (A) peut être placé et maintenu dans différentes positions, étant ainsi adapté à des personnes ayant des tailles et des handicaps différents. Ledit dossier (24) comporte des brides de serrage (52, 70) auxquelles sont fixées des tiges (40, 42) qui s'étendent transversalement sur la face arrière du dossier (24). Lesdites tiges (40, 42) sont réglables latéralement pour s'adapter à des fauteuils roulants de différentes largeurs. Elles possèdent des extrémités coudées (54, 56) situées au-delà des côtés du dossier (24) et ces extrémités (54-56) s'adaptent dans des supports de fixation (44, 46) situés sur des montants arrière (16) qui font partie du fauteuil roulant (A). Lorsque les brides de serrage (52, 70) sont débloquées, il est possible de faire tourner les tiges (40, 42). Cela permet de régler la position du dossier (24) vers l'avant et vers l'arrière, vers le haut et vers le bas, et angulairement.
