Arm/Leg rest is a feature that is found in wheelchairs, modern vehicles, aircrafts, and auditoriums where user can rest their arms or legs and able to balance their body. Placing the weight of arms on armrest reduces downward gravity acting on the spine and helps in improving posture, maintaining the integrity of the spine and intervertebral discs. Leg rests have an adjustable angle, which are removable and have calf pads that support lower part of the leg when elevated. Such features of arm/leg rest are helpful in spinal cord injury patients.
