A crooked sitting posture?
With certain disabilities, the user may find it increasingly difficult to stay sitting upright in an armchair. This might be because of reduced muscle strength or a spinal deformity (caused e.g. by scoliosis). Persons with Parkinson’s disease or who have suffered a stroke often find themselves adopting a crooked sitting posture. This causes an imbalance in the torso.
Sitting in this way can put an enormous strain of the human body. If you adopt a crooked sitting posture for prolonged periods it may lead to the back muscles contracting on one side.
An ILP backrest is ideal for persons for whom a standard bucketstyle backrest is not adequate or for people where it is likely that the way that they need to be laterally supported will change overtime.
If the chair is set in a tilted position, this will achieve even better results.
