German term or phrase: Kyphoseverstellung
Used in the description of a medical treatment chair.
English translation:kyphosis
Explanation:
Verstellung = adjustment

kyphosis = backward curvature of the thoracic spine, of congenital origin or resulting from injury or disease; hunchback

now, in what way and for what purpose that medical chair of yours can be adjusted, you would know best, since you have the whole description of it before you; probably either just the bending backward of the back of the chair or, on the contrary, the possibility to adjust it so as to try and 'adjust' the spine of people suffering from K.

good luck!
