Designed for users at lower risk of pressure injuries, the Stimulite Silver is a ventilated, double-layered cushion for use on a wheelchair, recliner or stadium seat. The cushion self-adjusts by contouring to each person’s anatomy while equalizing pressure across its surface. The footprint of flexible cells stimulates capillary action to keep oxygenated blood in tissues and to combat numbness that can occur when sitting for long periods.
Matrx Elan Headrest
This new headrest has been a godsend in my facility for providing more optimal head control compared to all the other headrests we’ve tried. It gives suboccipital and lateral control that can be infinitely adjusted/readjusted to each user. I love it!

Quickie SEDEO ERGO
With patented Biometric Repositioning, SEDEO ERGO seating is designed for effective independent repositioning throughout the day. Moving in or out of recline can cause the user to slide out of an optimal posture. SEDEO ERGO moves from reclined to a seated position by first passing through a transitional tilted position to use gravity to realign the pelvis in a smooth, effortless motion. Biometric Repositioning envelopes the body and ensures the pelvis is properly positioned. SEDEO ERGO is available with C-Me to drive up to 3 mph while elevated.
