Designed to impress

Emys is the compact, flexible postural backrest with a unique design. We have designed it to be incredibly easy to use thanks to the quick-release coupling and release systems. Emys provides a feeling of extreme comfort thanks to its breathable foam padding. The handmade padding can be removed and washed at 30°C. The flexibility of the backrest can be easily adjusted giving you the right mix of freedom of movement and control. Did you know that Tarta® Emys received the Oscar for innovation? Well yes in 2017,
it won the prestigious “Compasso d’Oro International Edition”, an international design award, which is held every two years.

Design
Attractive lines identify a tool that stands out for its design originality applied to ergonomics. In addition, the new profiles in reflective material increase its visibility, making it safe even in the dark.
Breathability
The space between the modules is specially designed for maximum breathability and a pleasant feeling of freshness. The fabrics of the pads also contribute to this effect.
Customisation
Tarta Emys can also be shaped in the case of kyphosis or lordosis so that the correct position of the spinal column is guaranteed by a lumbar thrust or lateral containment. The slats, made of aeronautical aluminium, embrace and support the back during all movements.
Comfortable and lightweight
The foam cushions are covered in breathable, removable and machine-washable fabric for maximum comfort and hygiene. The use of aeronautical steel ensures the backrest is extraordinarily light while guaranteeing maximum resistance.
Flexibility
Thanks to the harmonic steel of the column and its modular structure, the backrest flexes giving maximum freedom of movement. In addition, with Emys you can set the maximum degree of backrest flexibility.
Torsion
The backrest torsion allows you to make all your movements in complete freedom, without having to give up the support of the backrest.
