OBSS Simulator

The OBSS Simulator is ideal for use during a client fitting for OBSS custom contoured seating. It accommodates the OBSS vacuum bags and has easy-to-use adjustable features for…

• seat depth
• seat to back angle
• tilt-in-space
• knee angle adjustment
• lower leg length

Additionally, the frame is lightweight and portable, making it easy to transport when needing to do a client assessment (mold) in the field. And because the wheel locks are spring-loaded and self-adjusting, you’ll know that the base is always secure and safe during a client assessment. Using the OBSS simulator in conjunction with our highly flexible molding bags, and our portable, accurate 3D scanning system, makes molding easy and helps ensure optimum outcomes. Tip: Consider adding an optional headrest and hardware for even better client positioning!

Challenges of a Home Health Therapist

Home health care is on the rise as a viable option for therapy especially as the health model shifts from fee-for-service to value based care. Inpatient rehab stays are getting shorter and therapy is increasingly being provided at home due to the significant cost-savings 1,2). Permobil understands that home health is a unique setting, and we want to address the specific challenges to providing seating and wheeled mobility interventions in the home. In today’s blog, we’re discussing why home health therapists may feel ill-equipped to providing these services when asked to do wheelchair or seating evaluations.

Today's blog is written by Rachel Fabiniek, our clinical educator in Australia. Rachel has been offering a blog series on drive wheel configuration which has led to this blog on the importance of power wheelchair suspension for the end user.

Read Rachel’s blog to better understand what you should look for when comparing power wheelchair suspension.

How high can your wheelchair take you?

Power seat elevation is a seat function available on power wheelchairs that may allow a person using this wheelchair to perform tasks and reach things that they might not otherwise be able to do from a typical seated height. Permobil has continued to improve the functional use of power seat elevation. Not only do we offer power seat elevation, called Active Height™, we offer anterior tilt called ActiveReach™. ActiveReach™ can create different experiences and interactions for wheelchair users as it brings them into a more functional position for daily tasks and allows the person to interact with their environment in a whole new capacity. This blog will highlight the tremendous advantages of ActiveHeight™ with ActiveReach™ and why this function should always be a consideration for appropriate power wheelchair users.
