Product Features

The Acta-Embrace™ ATI provides comfort and skin protection with two layers of foam, a contoured molded base foam with a layer of memory foam. Offered in two different styles: the Anti-Thrust which provides anterior pelvic build-up to prevent forward migration, and the Zero Elevation which allows for greater freedom of movement for standard positioning issues. The moldable Adjustable Technology Base (ATI) is designed to be molded to add additional support where needed.

  • Front of ACTA ATI- Base
    Adjustable Technology Insert (ATI)

    The ATI is constructed of a strong aluminum that is designed to be molded to add additional support where needed. This system allows for on-site customization to effectively meet the needs of any user. The dynamic nature of input provides positioning support while allowing for movement. The insert can be remolded to meet the changes in the user’s physical and functional needs.

  • Permobil GLIDE WEAR of Shear Reduction Zone and Stability zone Front of Cushion
    Available with GlideWear®

    GlideWear is designed to promote healing and reduce the risk of pressure injury through the use of the Shear Reduction Zone. GlideWear provides reduction of shear forces to increase skin protection, 100% breathability for microclimate control, and improved comfort from reduced friction. The GlideWear technology option is available as an embedded upgrade to Stretch-Air & Comfort-Tek fabric options. Latex free.

Acta-Embrace™ ATI Product Features:
  1. Deep lateral and medial leg contours promote postural alignment.
  2. Tapered leg adductors increase in width near the back of the cushion to give support to the greater trochanters.
  3. Two layers of foam, a contoured molded base foam with a layer of memory foam, provide comfort and skin protection.
  4. Comes standard with non-skid bottom and hook and loop attachment.
  5. Moldable ATI base allows for on-site customization to effectively meet the needs of the user. The dynamic nature of input provides positioning support while allowing for movement. The ATI base can be remolded to meet changes in both physical and functional needs.

Common Concerns About Early Power Mobility Devices

The last part in our series about developmental milestones in early childhood focusing on mobility. Seepart 1,part 2,part 3,part 4, part 5,part 6,part 7, part 8,part 9, part 10, part 11, and part 12.

Perhaps one of the mostly widely known authors on this topic are Wiart and Darrah from an article published in 2002 entitled “Changing philosophical perspectives on the management of children with physical disabilities: Their effect on the use of powered mobility.” The authors highlight the paradigm shift that occurred around that time frame and that several factors contributed to the new philosophy.
Two very important political changes occurred

Understanding Cushion Properties with the Help of ANSI/RESNA & ISO Standards Conclusion

This is the final blog in our series on understanding cushion properties with the help of ANSI/RESNA and ISO standards. See blog 1, blog 2, blog 3,blog 4, blog 5, blog 6, blog 7, blog 8, blog 9, and blog 10.

We greatly appreciate the interest that has been shown in this series, “Understanding Cushion Properties with the Help of ANSI/RESNA and ISO standards”. Please continue to reach out with questions and comments.
We began by reviewing the structure of the ISO standards technical groups, working groups, and national committees, and explored the benefits and limitations of standards, as well as how these methods relate to clinical practice . We then dove into five specific ISO standards:

Functional Elements of the Explorer Mini's Saddle Seat

Part 11 in our series about developmental milestones in early childhood focusing on mobility. Seepart 1,part 2,part 3,part 4, part 5,part 6,part 7, part 8,part 9, part 10,and part 12.

The saddle seat was designed intentionally to facilitate an upright posture through developmentally appropriate supports. Research regarding the use of either flat seats or saddle-like seating has been conducted over the years. The work of DT Reid (1996) tells us that children with Cerebral Palsy displayed better seat alignment and postural control of the upper body resulting in a more efficient reaching path in a saddle seat making it easier to reach desired item. In 2006, Stavness reviewed the literature on the effect of positioning for children with cerebral palsy and upper extremity function. Evidence supports that an upright position, versus sitting back in a chair, improves reaching and hand manipulation. Additionally, the optimal position is a cutout tray, a sloped seat forward of 0-15 degrees and that the line of gravity be in front of the “sit bones”, otherwise known as the ischial tuberosities.
