ROHO’s exclusive AGILITY CUSTOM back system allows you to design an adjustable DRY FLOATATION® insert that’s individually tailored to your clients’ unique body shapes and postural and support needs – fitted to whichever AGILITY back shell size you choose.

And all CUSTOM backs share the same great AGILITY features:

  • Designed to adapt to your clients’ wheelchairs and are fully adjustable
  • Once properly fitted, they’ll stay secure and in position
  • Composed of the same aircraft-grade aluminum shells and high-density Zytel® composite hardware as a standard AGILITY
  • Custom Seating Portal for a simplified ordering process.
  • Stronger

    AGILITY passed 100,000 cycles without damage or slippage when 300 lb. of force was exerted directly to the most vulnerable part of the back, the top. See the video.

  • Easy to Adjust

    AGILITY angle, height and depth can be adjusted with the individual in the wheelchair – all with one tool. Watch the video.

  • Comfortable

    Only AGILITY offers ROHO’s adjustable AIR FLOATATION technology along the spinal column to increase overall comfort and to better conform to any individual.

  • Flippable

    Shell can be “flipped” to accommodate more body types using the same hardware.

Why AGILITY?

Our innovative hardware. The cutting-edge, durable Zytel® composite hardware lets you say: “AGILITY Backs will not slip!” AGILITY gives you the peace of mind knowing that when your client’s replacement back is fitted properly to your client’s wheelchair, the back will stay in position. Your clients will have the confidence that no matter what their activity level, their AGILITY back will keep them secure now and in the future. And that is only part of how AGILITY Backs help you put the individuals needs first.

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.

With ImmersionEven pressure redistribution over entire gluteal surface

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:
