ROHO and Permobil have joined together to evolve Permobil’s Corpus positioning cushion to feature an optional ROHO insert for added comfort, support, and skin protection. The cushion combines the shape matching ability of the ROHO DRY FLOATATION® technology with Permobil’s ergonomic design. By adjusting the amount of air, the cushion can be tuned to match the individual’s shape. The improved cushion design enhances the already revolutionary Corpus seating system, providing you with the superior skin protection that ROHO is known for. Our ergonomic positioning cushion is contoured to provide pelvic stability and improved lower extremity alignment. The lateral edges of the cushion accommodate removable seat wedges and help provide control in the seated position. The specially-designed ROHO insert supports the ischial tuberosities and the posterior shelf of the greater trochanters for those clients who are at high risk of breakdown. Cleaning requires just soap and water, and the specially designed cushion cover is also machine washable for added convenience.

Manual wheelchair frame materials: 6000 & 7000 series aluminum

Hi again. In our last Balanced Ride blog we discussed the importance of material science in the complex rehab technology industry. Frame material choice in ultra-lightweight manual wheelchairs (ULMWCs) plays a pivotal role for someone searching for a more Balanced Ride. Today we are going to dive a bit deeper how and why aluminum is used when manufacturing ULMWCs. Aluminum is the material used most often, though it is still surprising that it was only 50 years ago that people started to use it in the design and production of ULMWCs. Especially when you consider the fact that wheelchairs or similar devices have been used for over 2000 years.
