Diego Pediatric Seating

Diego Pediatric Seating

The Diego system was inspired by the everchanging complex rehab industry and the need for 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.

Forward

Forward Cushion

With mild to moderate skin protection and a design that emphasizes comfort and prevention of sliding, Ride Designs’ Forward wheelchair seat cushion can be a great intervention for growing kids, seniors or clients who have sustained a stroke, brain injury or incomplete spinal cord injury.

The result is improved postural control without compromising skin protection. The cushion is made to help keep hips level and positioned at the back of the chair, which can enhance the wheelchair user’s seated stability. Now the Forward cushion is available in four additional sizes — 14x18", 15x15", 15x17" and 17x17" — in response to industry demand.
