Limitations in Pediatric Manual Wheelchair Options

Part1 in our blogseries focusing on Pediatric Mobility Solutions and the TiLite Pilot.

It has been well established that the importance of self-initiated mobility is essential to a child’s development. The ability to determine when and where you would like to move impacts multiple body systems. This self-directed mobility can positively influence a child’s ability to locate and track objects in their environment, understand movement planning, improve communication, and enhance emotional and cognitive development. With the TILite Pilot, we are creating an opportunity to support these developmental milestones through self-initiated manual wheeled mobility.

Ergonomic Seating and Manual Wheelchairs

Everyone has experienced an ergonomic seat design at some time or another. If you look at the seats in our cars, offices or even in waiting rooms ergonomic design is used because those making the chairs understand that the more the chair contours and fits a person, the less work the person must do to maintain good posture. Ergonomic seating has been underutilized in manual wheelchair design because we have customarily been dependent on cushions and backrests for postural support and positioning. We’ve also used linear seat slope as a method of providing pelvic stability, but this comes with important considerations. So, what is the difference between using traditional linear seat slope and ergonomic seating? We will take a closer look at the differences and show you why ergonomic seating is an amazing advancement in seating design for a person using a manual wheelchair.

Permobil Goes Hollywood

Yep, you read that correctly. Permobil made it to the big screen! The Upside is a remake of the hit 2011 French movie called The Intouchables, which was inspired by a true story. It’s a heart-warming comedy about an ex-convict (Kevin Hart) who develops an unlikely friendship with an eccentric billionaire with C3 quadriplegia (Bryan Cranston). And the best part is that they wanted a Permobil power chair to most honestly represent how a person with this level of injury can live a full and active life. We want to take you inside the story of how this happened by hearing from the ones who were involved from the beginning: Joe Kelly and Tony Forgione. The following postis taken from the infamous speech by Joe Kelly and Tony Forgione January 2019andtranscribedby Stacey Mullis.
