Custom Back Support
The Micro-Modular Seating insert allows clinicians to make unlimited adjustments after the shape has been formed, without using a heat gun. The unique, removable shell and see-through insert design enable confirmation of contact between the client and the back. Proprietary open-cell foam is soft to the touch, but maintains appropriate positioning, breathability and pressure relief. Breathable custom covers maximize heat and moisture reduction. Lightweight, fully adjustable mounting hardware has a quick-release design. Coded E2617.
Inspired by Drive
A multi-adjustable pediatric activity chair with tilt and recline, the Tusky combines moderate postural support with variable tilt-in-space functions. Tusky can be used in the classroom or at home for eating, learning and socializing. It comes standard with a pelvic belt, adjustable zippered chest harness, adductors, lateral thoracic supports, headrest and adjustable footrest.
With a mid-wheel-drive configuration, a turning radius of 20" and a width of just 23.25", the ROVI X3 power base offers great maneuverability in tight spaces. New highspeed motors increase the X3’s top speed to 6.2 mph and offer faster acceleration. An Active Ride Control independent suspension system and powerful 4-pole motors work together to provide superior climbing ability and uncompromised stability with a smooth, powerful ride. The new OnTraxx Enhanced Driving Module enhances drive response and directional control for the driver when going over uneven or sloping terrain.
Stimulite Contoured Cushion
Designed to provide positioning as well as comfort, the Stimulite Contoured Pediatric cushion has a soft top layer fused to a firmer bottom layer of flexible Stimulite honeycomb. Adductors, abductors and an ischial dish comfortably position the child, while the soft honeycomb cells hold the child securely in place. By providing optimal pressure relief, stability, shear force reduction and ventilation, the cushion helps to protect against pressure injuries. At 2.5" thick and weighing 1 to 2 lbs., the cushion is suitable for all activities and is naturally antibacterial.
Matrx Kid*ab*ra Vi Cushion
Ideal for pediatric users at moderate to high risk for skin breakdown, the Invacare Matrx Kid*ab*ra Vi wheelchair seat cushion was designed with dual-density, high-resiliency foam with a viscoelastic insert for comfort and support. The moisture-resistant, breathable cover protects the foam and can be easily wiped clean — important for busy families on the go.
Little riders need kid-friendly technology! The new Pilot has built-in forward growth adjustment so kids can maintain optimal rear wheel access for the most efficient propulsion possible (without needing to relearn push mechanics). A clean frame design features a seat pan and side panels that provide easy access to the adjustment bolts, so changes are simple and intuitive to make. Adjustments can be done without compromising access to the rear wheels. The ultralightweight design and carbon fiber frame panels make the Pilot 50 percent lighter and ever-so-easy to navigate for kids. Sized from 8x9" to 14x15".

i-Drive Control System
Designed around a proprietary Central Processing Unit and Advanced Programming Software, i-Drive’s combination of hardware and software brings state-of-the-art technology to the alternative drive control segment. Real-time feedback provides smoother control and improved driving efficiency to build confidence, even in new drivers or those with limited functional ability. Interaction between driver and system occurs in real time thanks to the i-Drive CPU, which works at a frequency of 150 kHz. Add Stealth’s positioning components to build the optimal seating and driving system for each pediatric client.
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:
I like the new Stealth i-Drive specialty control module. It is basically a newer type of electronic interface device that allows you to set up, connect and program specialty drive and switch controls on complex, high-end power wheelchairs for people that lack the ability to drive with a traditional hand control joystick set-up.
With this new technology, the users can access input devices that will allow them to drive and use power seating functions through alternative switch access. We have been using a lot of knee abductor-mounted switches for our ALS [clients] and have had some successful outcomes.

This compact, tilting rehab shower commode chair was specifically designed for growing children and smaller adults. The Raz-CAT’s adjustability and modularity make it ideal to fit kids and teens through childhood and beyond. An 18" wide seat frame and base allow the Raz-CAT to roll over most toilets. Adjustable height enables the unit to clear toilet bowls and provides easier hygiene access by the caregiver. Backs are available in 14", 16" and 18" widths and in 15" or 18" heights. Seat depth adjusts from 11" to 16" with the standard Raz-CAT seat. Tilt capacities up to 40° reduce pressure and provide optimal trunk positioning. With a frame that’s 3" shorter than the Raz-AT, the CAT (Compact Attendant Tilt) is more maneuverable than larger hygiene units, but still is compatible with Raz accessories and custom seats.
Convaid | R82
Convaid’s new Flyer is the latest addition to the company’s tilt-in-space portfolio. This lightweight, all-day pediatric chair is great for kids who are “graduating” from a stroller-style chair. The Flyer is modular and portable, built with growth in mind while accommodating aftermarket seating. Remove the seating module from the mobility base for easy lifting, transporting and storage. The Flyer grows in width, depth and height to keep up with kids.
