Manual wheelchairs are generally designed for both children and adults of all sizes who are still able to provide the upper body strength to manually propel themselves in their wheelchair. Manual wheelchairs can be very basic or can be designed with highly advanced, specialized features.
Power wheelchairs, more commonly know as "electric wheelchairs", are often an excellent option for both children and adults of all sizes who are physically unable to self-propel a manual wheelchair. Power wheelchairs can be very basic or can be designed with highly advanced specialized features.
Custom Seating & Positioning
Cushions and backrests are two important components for all wheelchair users to maintain healthy skin and the stability needed to drive their power chair, propel their manual chair and perform daily activities. Seating products can aid in stabilizing the wheelchair user. Specialty seating ranges from basic foam cushions to highly specialized cushions and backs to help promote healthy skin, while providing improved mobility, balance and control.
Gait trainers are designed for individuals who do not have functional walking skills or postural control to safely and independently use a standard walker. Most gait trainer’s offer varied levels of support and accessories that are designed to be modular. They can be removed or added according to the individual user’s needs and abilities.
Standers or standing frames enhance the quality of life for individuals of all ages with physical disabilities by integrating each individual into the upright position for normal life, classroom, and leisure activities. Standing delivers many health benefits; it provides stimulation to the bones in the lower extremities, encourages head and trunk control, improves respiratory function and stimulates gastric motility.
Strollers or compact folding adaptive assisted wheelchairs are high performance, easy-to-use mobility products used from infancy to adulthood. They are lightweight, portable and convenient to use in all types of daily activities. By offering a wide variety of sizes and positioning options to include recline and tilt-in-space, strollers can be custom built to your specific needs.
Specialty beds were developed to replace hospital beds or home beds to help reduce or relieve pressure that the weight of your body, and especially your bones, exert on your skin as it presses against the surface of your bed. Specialty beds require electricity or a battery pack to alter the level of support through inflation and deflation of air or movement of fluid.
Rehab bath equipment is designed for individuals of all ages from pediatric to geriatric who are having a difficult time safely or independently meeting their bathing or toileting needs. Choosing the appropriate type of equipment can provide the stability, assistance, mobility and confidence necessary to maintain independence with their ADL (Aids to Daily Living) needs.
