Custom Back Support
The Matrix Custom Back Support combines the benefits of a custom-molded back with the convenience of being able to adjust for a client’s growth or changes in condition. The unique design provides terrific airflow to combat heat and moisture retention. The custom-shaped outer shell allows for easy attachment of mounting hardware, and the cover also minimizes heat and moisture retention. A proprietary viscoelastic foam responds to adjustments, and the Custom Back Support can be adjusted during or after delivery.
Inception Simulation Kit
If off-the-shelf wheelchair seat cushions don’t work for your client, is a custom-molded seating system the only remaining option? Comfort Company doesn’t think so, and instead suggests its new Inception Simulation Kit. The kit is a tool that enables clinicians and ATPs to build a custom seat cushion using different types of foams and cushion components. Then, the client can test the simulated cushion prior to ordering — and the seating team can make adjustments, such as adding support or trying a different kind of foam. After deciding on the ideal combination of seating and support for a particular client, the ATP can place the seat cushion order with confidence. The Inception Simulation Kit comes in small, medium and large sizes. For more information on the kit, watch the video (url below); Comfort Company also offers a free hour-long Custom Seating solutions video tutorial that teaches viewers how to use the kit to build a customized system. CEUs are available for completing the online course.
For clients with more complex orthopaedic asymmetries or tone abnormalities, the PinDot Seating Series ContourU offers an accurate, individualized fit. ContourU seat and back cushions give full-contact support, even weight distribution and excellent stability to enhance its user’s abilities in a way that off-the-shelf seating just can’t match. Simulation is used to measure the surface shapes and contact areas, while precise VirtualU technology ensures exact duplication of the shape created.

Liquid SunMate FIPS
Key Kids' Words: Mold new cushions as child grows
Liquid SunMate Foam-in-Place Seating (FIPS) is a direct custom-molding seating system to help correct or slow progressive deformities and improve body functions through fixed posture control. The FIPS liquid molds exactly to the body contour and cures into an open-cell viscoelastic foam. The finished cushion redistributes pressure evenly for management of tissue loads, and is easily modified to accommodate belts, harnesses, Pudgee, gel or air-cell inserts, or adjustable supports. FIPS is a quick, easy, affordable way to mold new cushions as a child grows. It can be used on its own or with a variety of fabric-finished molding bag systems on the market. Six different formulations and four unit sizes accommodate cushion molding for all ages and sizes.
