Spex Zygo Deep Contour Back Support
Enabling freedom without compromising posture and comfort, the Zygo is a back support with inbuilt laterals designed for full-time self-propelling wheelchair users. We know that active wheelchair users don’t want to be held back – they want the freedom to go places and do amazing things.
Zygo back support systems are lightweight, easily adjustable, easy to install and remove, more breathable and more personalised. Zygo back support systems give you more comfort, flexibility, personalisation, and freedom to move – enabling you to go places, achieve more, and be whoever you want to be.
The Deep Contour back support is designed for the individual who has limited trunk mobility and strength, and requires a solid back support. It is available in two heights; a lo height shell which supports the pelvis and lumbar spine, and a mid height shell with support for the pelvis, lumbar spine and thoracic spine. The Lo style back support has a round padded top surface to support and protect the spine when stretching and moving throughout the day. This keeps the arms and trunk free to move, with an extended central support to stabilise the back. The Mid style back support provides support for the pelvis, lumbar spine and thoracic spine. Across the size range of the Zygo Deep back support, the depth of the lateral support varies to ensure a perfectly tailored match to the user.
The Zygo Deep Contour Back Support also features:
- a deep contour, providing excellent lateral trunk stability without compromising the function of the user
- support for the pelvis, lumbar spine and thoracic spine
- a unique ‘user-focused’ scripting process, where the size of the back support is determined by the wheelchair user size, not the wheelchair width – ensuring a tailored fit to the torso.
- lightweight Drop Mount Hardware that self-locks into place and is simple to operate with a single combined clamp and mechanism unit

The extensive range of size and style combinations available from the two shell contours (Active and Deep) and varying shell heights (Lo and Mid).
Aesthetic and minimalisticLook your best with Zygo! From the perfectly contoured shape to the futuristic and tasteful ventilated shell pattern, achieve effortless style and class through the Zygo’s elegant design. All Zygo back supports are supplied with a cover extension.
Compatibility with different wheelchairsThe unique breathable shell design allows interfacing of the shell to a range of different wheelchair styles, from lightweight manual wheelchairs through to complex power wheelchairs. The carefully placed hole cut-outs allow the shell to be directly mounted to certain wheelchair frames and is also compatible with central mounting systems.
Easy to use and easy to adjustFrom installation through to adjustment, the Zygo has been designed to be easily adjustable, easy to use and easy to remove. Suited to those with limited hand function, the easy ‘drop-in’ installation is made possible by the lightweight quick release Drop Mount hardware. The invertible shell design (on mid-height back supports) provides easy adjustment of the lateral height to achieve optimum trunk stability, ensuring a precisely tailored fit and the ability to accommodate postural and growth requirements.
More comfort and freedom to moveZygo users experience true freedom with unrestricted arm movement and scapula clearance. The Zygo provides superior comfort and flexibility which is achieved through the breathable padding design and ventilated shell that reduces the contact surface area around the user. The curved shape of the lower region of the back support is designed to provide firm, targeted support to the pelvis, while giving clearance to the soft regions of the hips and buttocks to encourage a neutral posture and comfortable sitting position.
Supportive Deep ContourThe Zygo Deep Contour offers a solid shell with inbuilt laterals, providing excellent lateral trunk stability without compromising function of the user. Coupled with the soft and comfortable upholstery design, the Zygo offers secure spine and trunk support. Across the size range of the Zygo Deep Contour style, the depth of the lateral support varies to ensure a perfectly tailored match to the user.
