Without the Back Support Shaping System engaged Peter Axelson:

"The back support shaping system is on my wheelchair right now. If I release the back support, so that I'm only leaning on my sling upholstery, my posture changes significantly.

With the Back Support Shaping System engaged When I put tension on the back support system, I sit approximately an inch and a half higher in my wheelchair. The great advantage is that I can loosen the back support if I'm going down a really steep ramp or wanting to tilt way back in my wheelchair for some reason."
