Ride Designs Decaf Backrest

Paediatric-sized, fully adjustable

Kids are not flat, and their back supports shouldn’t be either. Planar, biangular and other back supports are flat and attempting to adjust their contours with accessories results in loss of seat depth and compromise of trunk contact and support. Instead, the Decaf back can be flexed specifically to support the unique contours of a growing child’s body without loss of seat depth and with the most accurate support contact through the pelvis, lumbar and thoracic spine.



Available in both permanent or quick release configurations, the patented FlexLoc hardware allows the Decaf back to be adjusted in multiple axes for optimal contact with the trunk for comfort and support. In addition to height, angle, and depth, the Decaf back has rotational and asymmetrical adjustments.


Fit the child AND the chair! Any Decaf back can be adjusted to fit any chair width from 10-15”. The Decaf back can be specifically fitted to the child regardless of his wheelchair width.


Ride Designs highly recommends pairing the Decaf back with the Ride Forward™ for benefits not found in planar or other seating systems.


Fit any wheelchair from 10" to 15".
