The Desk Arm/Large Lap Hugger is a torso support designed to prevent forward leaning by people who use wheelchairs. This foam padded support is covered with wipe-clean vinyl and fits between the wheelchair user and the wheelchair frame and also provides arm support. Notches fit around the armrest posts.
