The wheelchair leg support can be a type that spans two sides or is separated on both sides. Both types of supports are ideal for swinging to the side and detachable. Attention must be paid to the height of the footrest. If the foot support is too high, the hip flexion angle is too large, and the weight is more added to the ischial tuberosity, which is likely to cause pressure sores there.
The backrest is tall and low and can be tilted or not tilted. If the patient has a better balance and control of the torso, a wheelchair with a low backrest can be used to make the patient more mobile. On the contrary, high-back wheelchairs should be used.
