Seating & Positioning


Supracor Inc.

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

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.

Seating Dynamics

Dynamic Footrest

Dynamic Footrest

Traditional footrests can be damaged when subjected to significant forces. But the Dynamic Footrest provides an energy-absorbing range of motion. The footrest is capable of up to three types of movement: telescoping; knee extension; and plantar/dorsi flexion. By providing movement in response to client movement, the footrest enables forces to be absorbed, protecting client, wheelchair frame and seating system. Extensor tone is absorbed and diffused, reducing overall tone and posturing. The movement provided can increase sitting tolerance and decrease agitation.

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

I love the Seating Dynamics Dynamic Footrests because these move in response to client force, removing leverage and helping my client to stay in position instead of standing in their wheelchair! This reduces overall extension and helps the client better tolerate the wheelchair seating system.

Spex Positioning

Spex Positioning

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

The Spex system is modular and comprises a grid of foam cubes. The individual cubes can be customized “on the spot” by adding to or removing foam to meet the individual’s specific upper-body shape.

The Spex back support profile can be created based on the postural needs identified for the individual’s upper body. The system has the ability to instantly “create” greater volume or fullness in the back support where needed or to remove fullness to ensure good contact with the body contours.

By providing seating which has the ability to be adjusted, clinicians and ATPs have the ability to continue to provide an individual with comfort and postural support, while meeting the asymmetrical postural presentation.

Prime Engineering

Superstand HLT

Superstand HLT

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

Need a stander for your classroom? Order the Superstand HLT from Prime Engineering with the adjustable depth and height supports. The trunk laterals and hip guides will be in slots that go in/out and up/down by just sliding. Also, upgrade to the metal wheels. This one unit can go prone, supine, upright, abduct, and accommodate almost any postural impairment.

For severe knee and hip contractures (20-90°), add the special system (get a longer bar for hip contractures). There will be no pressure on the patellae, and you can start to try to gain range. One study gained 3° a week! If you need more than 30° of abduction, order a longer bar and the rotational foot plates so you can align the hind foot with the tibia.

For the final touch, order the water-resistant covers. These look great, but also offer an additional level of cleanliness, as you can swap them out and wash them between users.

Axiom SP Visco Cushion

Axiom SP Visco

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

The Axiom SP Visco (pictured) and SP Fluid, both coded as E2607/8, are available in sizes from 14x14" to 22x20".

Feedback from my customers has been overwhelmingly positive. Sometimes it’s difficult to judge the effectiveness of a seating interface; however, the follow-up comments I received were all good.

Complex Rehab Supplies

Proximity Closures

Proximity Closures

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

These innovative magnetic buckles have opened up a whole new word for the end user and caregiver.

These buckles are brilliantly designed to be super easy to open and to close for so many individuals with limited hand function,who previously had to forgo strapping due to the compromised independence they incurred.

[President] Ken Keim has also kept cost within necessary limits to allow for constraints of funding. I think this new product is the best thing since sliced bread!

Ultra Head Support

Ultra Head Support

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

This head support has been around for a while, but it is one of my favorites! Its modular support provides occipital, suboccipital, and lateral head support to achieve and maintain neck alignment. I can even swap out a lateral pad with a switch to access an assistive technology device!

Aquila Corp.

SofTech Basic

SofTech Basic

Two groups of air bladders inflate, then slowly deflate in this alternating cushion to stimulate circulation and relieve pressure to skin and underlying tissues. The SofTech Basic cycles every 60 seconds and runs for more than 25 hours per charge. The system is contained inside the cushion, so nothing needs to be mounted on the chair. Operation is easy: just a single power switch. The cushion is available in 16x16", 18x18" and 20x20" widths/depths.

Biodynamics

6-Point Chest Harness

6-Point Chest Harness

Biodynamics’ standard 6-point chest harness is a great solution for the little “Houdini’s” we serve!

I have one such Houdini of my own, and previously had to have another seating company make one of these custom, which of course raised the pricing to a less comfortable level.

With a standard model, Biodynamics has provided a great, affordable solution for those that were able to find their way out of the usual 4-point harnesses.
