Tarta Emys

Flex, postural support and comfort


Emys is the compact, flexible postural backrest with a unique design. Lightweight and easy to use thanks to its quick coupling and release systems. Tarta Emys is more rigid than Original, to meet the needs of those who require greater stability. Emys provides a feeling of extreme comfort thanks to its breathable foam padding which can be washed at 30 degrees Celsius. There are 21 models, which can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs. Tarta Emys is distinguished by its attractive design resembling the shell of a turtle and its 100 per cent customisable structure with airbrushed and painted designs available. In 2017, it won the prestigious “Compasso d’Oro International Edition”, an international design award, which is held every two years.


Available in 3 different heights (27-35- 43cm). The size must be chosen according to the user's height, pathology and the amount of support needed. The low backrest is suitable for people with balance and good torso control, while the high backrest is designed for people who need more support.


The backrest is available in 3 widths, Medium, Large and Extra Large, from a minimum of 35 cm to a maximum of 45 cm. The ribs of the backrest are made of aluminium and can be moulded as required to conform to the user's measurements. We recommend that you consider the size of the user's T-shirt and select the corresponding backrest.


The backrest is available in three different depths depending on the support and containment needed according to the morphology and control of the user's torso. The depth of the restraining slats are 5.5 cm, 9 cm and 14.5 cm respectively

Adjustable Wheelchair Attachments:

One attachment for folding wheelchairs, consisting of height-adjustable central hardware attached to a crossbar to be fixed to the backrest tubes of the wheelchair. An attachment for rigid wheelchairs, consisting of central hardware that is adjustable in height. In both cases, the backrest can be easily removed and the wheelchair folded.
