Product Features

The Acta-Embrace™ LTS comes standard with patented moldable aluminum stays conform and support the user. The Acta-Embrace™ LTS features lateral trunk supports in four different sizes: XS, S, M, and L.

  • Moldable Supports

    Moldable stays allow for easy on-the-spot customization to accommodate a variety of spinal curvatures. Moldable stays allow for continual support of changing conditions and can easily accommodate rotation with offset placement well before trying to rotate the back support. Stays prevent high peak pressures by providing additional cushion contact with the user unlike traditional planar back supports. The moldable stays create a support surface unique to the individual.

  • Compass® 4 Hardware

    Compass® 4 Hardware is strong, light, and independently adjustable in depth and angle of recline. The Compass® 4 Hardware is easier to adjust and has a wider range of motion than leading competitor hardware.

  • Lateral Trunk Support Sizes

    Acta-Embrace™ LTS lateral trunk supports come in four different sizes: extra small at 4″ D by 3″ L, small at 5″ D by 4″ L, medium at 6″ D by 4″ L, and large at 7″ D by 5″ L.

Acta-Embrace™ LTS Product Features:
  • Integrated trunk wings attach to a planar aluminum back support shell are adjustable for angle, height, and up to a total of 3″ of width for standard wings and 1.5″ for pediatric wings to create a custom supportive shape
  • Moldable stays included for positioning, support, pressure redistribution and on-the-spot customization for a variety of spinal curvature and changes in conditions
  • Moldable stays on the backside of the two layer foam pad can be molded to support lumbar, scoliosis, and kyphosis needs
  • Moldable stays are offset from center of the back, removing pressure points from the spine
  • Comes with integrated chest harness strap guides
  • Durable aluminum shell comes with pre-drilled 2″ x 1″ head support hold pattern
  • Compatible with lateral trunk support hardware. A total of 11″ of pad width adjustment (5.5″ per side) and over 5″ of height adjustment.

What is an immersion style wheelchair cushion?

Part 6 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3,Part 4, and Part 5.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guide here.

Immersion is another principle of pressure distribution, neither better nor worse than offloading. Whether it is better or worse depends completely on the patient’s individualized needs and what you as a therapist are trying to achieve.
Recall that the principle of offloading is redistributing pressure away from a small surface area onto a greater surface area that can withstand the constant pressure better, making a patient less likely to sustain a pressure injury.
Immersion, on the other hand, is the principle of conforming to the person’s curvature by “sinking the body in.” We allow the cushion and/or back support to take the body’s shape, alleviating the bony prominences from unwanted peak pressure to maximize pressure redistribution.

The Reality of Chronic Pain for Wheelchair Users
Chronic pain is an unfortunate fact of daily life for many wheelchair users. Sometimes the pain is related to an injury, and other times it is related to being in a wheelchair for extended periods of time. Thankfully, there are some very effective pain management options available to wheelchair users.

What in the construction of an offloading wheelchair cushion allows for pressure redistribution?

Part 5 in our Wound Care Guide series.SeePart 1,Part 2,Part 3, and Part 4.Check out our comprehensive, digital Wound Care Guidehere.

Through the built-in contours of an offloading style cushion, the therapist can help align and stabilize the spine, pelvis, and LEs to allow the pressure and shear forces to be transferred from a smaller surface area to a greater surface area. The contours needed for offloading pressure are:
