How to adjust the back support system on your CPOD
Overview: Ratchet sequence adjustment is from left to right with increased support as the tension on the ratchet is increased.
Ensure tension on the back support is fully released by pressing on the black tab on the right side of the adjustment lever for each band. Sit back in the chair and identify where support is needed from the back of the chair.
Once you have identified the zone that requires support, lift back the gray ratchet lever so that it clicks and moves the strap towards to midline of the chair.there are 15 numbers from 1-15 on the strap. The appropriate number lines up with a marker that is visible when the grey lever is lifted up. When you reach the end of the adjustment (#15), you will hear an audible change on the click of the ratchet lever. Repeat the same process for the other zones that you feel you need support. You can achieve greater support at a particular zone by reducing the support above and below that zone.
For lower back pain or discomfort
Adjust the back height so that the lumbar area of the chair fits into the curve of your lower back.
The back height is rachet height adjustable. Simply lift up on the back rest of the chair to raise the back rest to 5 different height options. Once the back rest height gets to the very top, it will realease and allow you to lower it to the lowest position again.
Your lumbar area of the back may not be supported properly. Angle the back rest forward to increase lower back support. When using your CPOD Chair, adjust the tension on the lower two straps on the backrest.
To adjust the recline angle, twist forward the knob found underneath the left side of the seat. This will allow your back rest to recline freely. Reclione to the desired position and twist the same knob backwards to lock your back rest in place.
Lower the seat height so that your feet are flat on the floor and supporting the weight of the lower portion of the legs.
Discomfort in the buttocks and back of thighs
Adjust your CPOD Chair height so that your legs are not dangling from the front of the seat. Make sure that the chair height is not too low. If the angle of the knee bend is too large, then the weight of the body will be transferred to the seat pan surface causing discomfort in the buttocks and back of the thighs.
To raise the chair, lift the paddle found underneath the right side of your seat while lifting your weight from the seat until reach the desired height. Release the paddle to lock the seat in place. To lower the chair, lift the same paddle but allow your body weight to push the seat down to the desired position. Release the paddle to lock it into place.
For pain in the shoulders and arms
Raise or lower the arm rests so that your arms are resting comfortably on the surface. Shoulders should not be haunched.
For more support around the upper back and shoulder areas, adjust the tension in the top two straps on the back of your CPOD chair.
