Product Description

Product Description

The adjustable angle back rest from NRS Healthcare is designed to help improve comfort when you’re in bed. It is a simple yet effective device which provides an excellent level of comfort. It can be used when you want to sit up in bed and you can choose from six angles so that you can find the one which is best suited to you. The back rest can be used by anyone who wants more support when relaxing in bed but it is particularly useful for someone who spends a lot of time in bed due to illness or injury. The support is an economical and affordable alternative to a pillow lifter or mattress elevator and offers the perfect position when you wish to eat, drink, read, watch television or simply sit up for a while.

Construction that inspires confidence

The frame of the back rest is made from sturdy, white, coated metal while the back rest section is formed from blue mesh type fabric. Also included is a padded headrest which attaches with hook and loop fastening and can therefore be removed if necessary.

The back rest is very simple to set up. It is supplied folded flat and all you need to do is open out the frame by pulling the two sections away from one another. There is a metal section attached to the front part of the frame which slots into one of six cut out half circles on each side of the base frame section. This creates the angle of the back rest which can be adjusted until you achieve the best position. The angle adjusts between 20 and 75 degrees through the six possible positions.

Easy folding--easily portable

Because the back rest folds up, it is ideal to take with you when travelling or going on holiday and is portable enough to easily fit in a suitcase or car boot. The height of the back rest measures 600 mm (23.5 in) and it is 570 mm (22.5 in) wide. The depth of the back rest is 500 mm (19.5 in) and the maximum user weight is 102 kg (16 st). The back rest can be wiped clean if necessary.

I have just received my back rest, and i think it is a great item. I have wanted one for ages and finally i have it.

This is just perfect for me as i am disabled and need to sit upright, I am using at this moment in bed because i have good and bad days. I would rate this back rest 10/10 and very comfortable. Cheers and god bless you, you have made a poorly lady very happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfied 28 Sep 2013

It does the job required of it, cannot compare to others as this a first but I have no problems with it. Delivery was prompt and no damage whatsoever. I have had knee surgery so have found laying down somewhat of a nightmare, this back rest initially gave me support for eating and reading when I came out of hospital and now for doing my exercises, thought it might be ideal for sleeping more upright but found it difficult sleeping upright and slanting position but that was down to me and not backrest as I'm used to sleeping lying down, so still quite exhausted through lack of sleep, fingers crossed that improve.

2.0 out of 5 stars No good for me 7 Feb 2014
By wenben

This will not stay put on the bed unless the bottom bar is resting against the wall. As soon as you lean on it it slides backwards on the bed. Also the more upright position you put it in the more you slide down. Very uncomfortable. Had to pay 5 to send it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back Rest 10 Oct 2013
By Carole
Verified Purchase
Due to a broken bone near the shoulder I found it difficult to sit or lie as pillows were too soft and moved about.
This angle Back Rest was a Godsend and would recommend it to anyone who needs support at any level.
The ability to set the angle to any height - plus the feeling of security that it would not slip out of position has helped in my recovery.

I bought it for when I was pregnant as not allowed to lie flat on back and could not lie on my sides due to very strong pelvic pain. It helped me sleep on my back whilst keeping a safe angle for the baby too.
