The NXT üFit II pelvic back support is designed to be customized to uniquely fit users with Scoliosis, Kyphosis, and other spinal deformities, requiring mid-thoracic support. The main foam support layer comprises removable/customizable üCube™ foam blocks, which can be individually removed and/or cut to create a unique fit that accommodates each user’s unique needs. A secondary layer of foam ensures the contour is smooth and prevents any exposure to the shell.
The NXT üFit II Pelvic Back Support uses their new technology üCubes. üCubes have special pins that keep them securely attached to the aluminium shell yet allow easy removal. üCubes come in three different heights – the Standard 2″ and Optional Kits of 1″ or 3″ size, providing a variety of options for customizing this unique back support.
- Easily removable üCube foam blocks allow adjustability of the contour shape for a customized fit for the user (üCubes are also individually customizable by cutting them to suit the user as required)

Preventing pressure ulcers
It can be difficult to prevent pressure ulcers completely, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.
- Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
- Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – your care team will do this if you’re in a hospital or care home
- Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
- Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation
If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
