Adjustable Shadow Tray

Adjustable Shadow Tray

This new shadow tray for the Evolv line is adjustable in height and depth. It covers the entire usable height and depth range of the six previous shadow tray options it is replacing. Designed to comfortably support the user, the tray provides constant anterior support throughout the sit-to-stand transition to “shadow” the user in any position between sitting or standing. The tray retains the popular flip-up operation that quickly moves it out of the way and provides a wide-open base for transfers. The tray is available in a black-molded or a clear acrylic style.

Raz-CAT

Raz-CAT

The Raz Compact Attendant Tilt features a smaller footprint that’s perfect for pediatric, adolescent and smaller adult clients. The base and seat frames retain the 18" width of the Raz-AT commode chair so the Raz-CAT can still be positioned over a toilet. But the base frame is shortened 3" to make the chair more maneuverable. A depth-adjustable back offers depths from 12" to 15" (to front of frame) or up to 17" with the front of the seat overhanging the seat frame. The standard seat has an elongated aperture to work with seat depths of 12-15", and custom seats are available. The Raz-CAT has 40° of tilt and a 250-lb. user weight capacity.

Evoflex + Belt Extender

Evoflex + Belt Extender

The Evoflex Hip Belt is now easier to mount without compromising user fit. Evoflex’s stiffened end straps stay upright or pivot out of the way when you want, and stay where you put them. Straps won’t twist or fall into the wheels, thus facilitating transfers and making it easier to keep the straps clean. A patented, tapered design improves stability by allowing a closer fit. With the new Evoflex Belt Extender, straps can be lengthened up to 12.5 cm (5") on each side while maintaining the stiffness of the Evoflex — great for chairs with contoured seating, thicker seat cushions or distant mounting points.

Diego Pediatric Seating

Diego Pediatric Seating

The Diego system was inspired by the ever-changing complex rehab industry and the need for a pediatric seating system designed for that market. Through the years, Stealth Products has determined that the pediatric end user needs a modular growth seating system. The manufacturer began to look into how it could incorporate sound positioning features into a next-generation seating system that was not just a scaled-down version of an adult seat, but one designed specifically for a smaller user. Those are the advantages and benefits of Diego.
