  • Moldable Stays of ACTA-Embrace
    Moldable Supports

    Moldable stays allow for easy on-the-spot customization to accommodate a variety of spinal curvatures. Moldable stays allow for continual support of changing conditions and can easily accommodate rotation with offset placement well before trying to rotate the back support. Stays prevent high peak pressures by providing additional cushion contact with the user unlike traditional planar back supports. The moldable stays create a support surface unique to the individual.
