The calf supports are angle and height adjustable pads that attach to the legrests. These padded calf supports are necessary to support the lower legs when the leg is elevated, or to keep feet from falling behind the footplates when in the neutral seated position. Calf supports are especially important when using a tilt-in-space power seating system and/or power articulating elevating legrests. The padding provides an additional surface to distribute pressure, and has a mild contour to accommodate the lower leg.
