Matrix Custom Back Support

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.

Comfort Company

Inception Simulation Kit

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.

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.

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.

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:

So far I’ve only used this new system to capture a back for client, but I love the technology. I know a few other brands have come out with similar systems, but I haven’t gotten to try theirs yet, so Ride Designs gets my vote. Finally, no reason to pull out the plaster anymore. This new system is easy to use and super fast to capture. I love the move to a camera-based capture. It will save us lots of time in both the molding and the clean-up when we use Ride Designs products.

Prairie Seating Corp.

Custom Molded Seating

Custom Seating

Prairie Seating’s technology options include 3D scanning to capture contours, including wraparound laterals, in both the seat and the back. Or mold your client with the Reflection PSS 97 Molding Frame, which acts as an evaluation tool and a simulator. The molding frame uses two bags filled with plastic beads; as the client sits in the molding frame, the ATP or clinician forms the bag to capture the client’s posture. As a built-in vacuum pump withdraws some air from the bag, the seating team can reshape beads as needed. Then the client is removed and a two-part liquid is poured into the seat and back to form a cast. The cast hardens and is ready to remove in about 20 minutes.
