Yamaha Motor Corp. USA

NaviONE Power Assist

NaviONE Power Assist

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

I looked at the power add-on wheels from Yamaha, the NaviONE. It does have some features that make it unique. The NaviONE has a system that controls all the components as one, where one wheel communicates with the other for more precise control and operation. They can also be set up for hemi propellers and users with uneven arm strength.

It has two different battery options, nickel and lithium, with the lithium battery’s expected range around 22 miles. It also has some built-in features for rollback prevention, downhill speed control, uphill assist, and side slope stability. The installation looks fairly straightforward to fit a variety of frames.

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.

Supracor Inc.

Stimulite Silver

Stimulite Silver

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.

Permobil

Permobil Connect

Permobil Connect

Permobil Connect comprehensively connects its power chairs to their users and providers. It uses an internal SIM card to communicate to the My Permobil user app and with the provider’s Fleet Management web portal, and has integrated Bluetooth to communicate with the Virtual Seating Coach app. Clients use smartphones or tablets and the My Permobil app to check on info such as battery charge and how far they’ve traveled. Providers use Permobil Connect’s maintenance feature to be proactive on service issues. Permobil Connect is standard on the M3 Corpus, M5 Corpus, F3 Corpus, F5 Corpus and F5 Corpus VS.

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

The addition of Connect to Permobil chairs is a real improvement. First, the fact that part of the system does not rely on a smartphone or Bluetooth is great, as many users do not have that technology. Many manufacturers have the ability to look at chair function remotely now, but most require Bluetooth to do so.

So, the ability to do this without Bluetooth opens up the functionality to everyone who uses a wheelchair. Additionally, the fact that Virtual Seating Coach (VSC) is now free for individuals who do have smartphones or tablets is great. So many clients forget to use their power features, and they say they wish they had a reminder. This is exactly that!

Plus, for my clients who I want to drive slightly tilted to help with seating, the VSC can show them they are tilted the 10-15° I’ve recommended. VSC has been around for a while, but it was always an upcharge feature that most of my clients could not afford. So, this is a real step forward.

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.

Ki Mobility

Liberty Wheelchair

Liberty Wheelchair

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

Ki has, once again, listened closely to the needs of the consumer, therapist and supplier, and responded with a very well-thought-out and beautifully designed solution!

This chair is a great product for the manual chair user who wants to continue to self-propel with upper or lower extremities, but needs some extra positioning and/or pressure relief. The weight and ease of folding is impressive for all of the function it provides, and consumers and therapists find it attractive!

As always, Ki has also been mindful of our funding challenges, and has been able to provide pricing that aligns well with our current funding restrictions.

Permobil

M3 Corpus

M3 Corpus

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:

The anterior tilt packages and Connected chair features are one of a kind, and the chair overall is unmatched in terms of quality, durability and positioning.

— Chris Bittner, ATP, Numotion

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:

The integrated mouse/Bluetooth module allows mounting to the rear, which allows alternate drive clients to interact with their environment when funding sources are limited. The caster wheels’ new shape allows changing direction without a lot of unintended movement, which is crucial for an alternate drive client.

— Jeff Decker, ATP/SMS, CRTS, National Seating & Mobility

M3 is a great progression of Permobil’s mid-wheel-drive chair that users find very appealing functionally and aesthetically. The anterior tilt Active Reach options are changing the way we can view transfer solutions, and it also allows users to accomplish activities of daily living in a safer and easier way, including reaching into high cabinets and beyond obstruction.

Matrx Elan Headrest

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!

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.
