Basic Wheelchair Backrests

Basic wheelchair backrests are, for the purposes of this web site, simpler back supports that don't have a lot of adjustability, accessories or support options. These backs will generally be less expensive then the more complicated back supports for wheelchairs but they should not be considered inferior. They simply offer better back support than the wheelchair upholstery without the many bells and whistles that many wheelchair users don't need, and won't ever use.
