Reflex

Reflex

Designed for consumers at moderate risk of skin breakdown, the Reflex has a set amount of immersion that conforms to the user’s body to provide comfort and added stability. Air-Foam Floatation dampens impact and vibration, and a built-in device automatically releases a portion of air when the user sits on the cushion, which reinflates when weight is lifted off it. These features make for an effective, low-maintenance cushion.

Custom Molded Seating

Custom Molded Seating

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:

Ride Design’s custom molded seating is an amazing product for certain clientele. It was developed by a physical therapist and an orthotist in Colorado, and it can help people sit in their mobility device in ways that other devices cannot.

— Frank Lane, ATP, CRTS, National Seating & Mobility

What about the new technologies around scanning for custom molded seating? Very quick scanning and no more plaster molds for them. No slinging plaster anymore on a Ride mold; I love this.

SofTech Basic

SofTech Basic

A standardized automatic alternating cushion, the SofTech Basic gently alternates about 90 times per hour to prevent pressure injury caused by sitting too long. Two groups of internal air bladders automatically inflate, then slowly deflate to create a gentle massaging action. The completely self-contained unit weighs about 5 lbs., can be used on any chair, and requires no adjustments. The battery-operated system operates more than 25 hours on a charge.

Ride Forward

This cushion surrounds the pelvis with supportive contours while reducing pressure around at-risk bony prominences. The design encourages a level pelvis and holds the hips to the back of the chair, helping to improve postural control and balance without skin protection compromise. The Ride Forward is ideal for users looking for comfort, greater sitting stability, improved skin outcomes and heat/moisture management.

ROHO Smart Check

ROHO Smart Check

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:

When you feel you need a ROHO cushion under someone, but are not sure they can maintain the air in it, this is the way to go. Once the cushion is inflated properly, the patient can check inflation by simply plugging in the Smart Check, and if it is “green” the cushion is still properly inflated. If not it, will tell you to put air in or take air out.

Custom Cushion 2

Custom Cushion 2

Ride’s popular Custom Cushion has combined with advanced Ride-Works scanning/ordering technology to produce the Ride Custom Cushion 2 — offering all the skin and postural care of its predecessor in a lighter, more comfortable and simpler design. An intuitive and accurate process enables shapes to be quickly scanned then sent with photos and order information through a secure, encrypted iOS app. The result is a cushion made specifically to match its user’s unique shape and that helps to decrease long-term skin risk while improving sitting stability. The lightweight Custom Cushion 2 is about 1.8 lbs. (for an average 16x16" size) and features a softer base. Upgrade the standard cushion with Soft Fit options of two or three layers of spacer mesh fabric. The included Ride CAM wedges can be used to adjust cushion contours to accommodate weight change, tissue atrophy and postural changes. Optional well inserts can be added to support bony prominences and to support microclimate management.
