Dreamline backrests achieve excellent pressure management from many areas of the body. Unique to Dreamlilne is the “bubble contour” shaping which improves immersion, enables better flexibility and moulds to closely match the contours of the body. A central channel relieves pressure in the spinal region. Careful foam selection incorporates high resilience foam laminated to a high density, impact absorbing, pressure relieving overlay for maximum care. Strategically positioned ventilation holes in the foam & the backrest shell, together with 3D Mesh fabric covers provide excellent air exchange. Additional Polymer Gel inserts are available on request as a modification.

Introducing the all new U2 quick-release attachment system! The new U2 quick-release hardware is easily configured for both 2-point & 4-point attachment & fully WC20 crash tested to a user weight limit of 136kg when forward facing in a motor vehicle. The attachment hardware is even more compact / lightweight & doesn't take up much room on either the backrest or wheelchair frame. Three lock screws on each clamp ensure a strong grip to any tube diameter from ¾” – 1” without requiring spacers.
