Precision Comfort Deep

The PC Deep cushion features a high-density, high-resilience base with a deep well. High-density foam is used in combination with a super-soft silicone gel insert in the overlay. The result is a design created to provide long-lasting support with deep submersion of the wheelchair user’s ischial tuberosities and coccyx to promote superior pressure reduction. The structure of the Precision Contour Deep cushion helps to prevent sacral sitting and encourage proper posture to reduce user fatigue.

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.
