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.

Understanding How Children Gain Independent Mobility

Part2 in our blogseries focusing on Pediatric Mobility Solutions and the TiLite Pilot. See Part 1 here.

Last week we took a look at the several limitations in the overall design of traditional pediatric self-propelled manual mobility. From overall weight of the setup to how a short wheel base impacts stability and propulsion, these limitations can be devastating for our young clients. In order to solve these limitations, it’s important to understand how children gain independent mobility along with some of the physiology behindthe importance of improving pediatric manual mobility design.

Limitations in Pediatric Manual Wheelchair Options

Part1 in our blogseries focusing on Pediatric Mobility Solutions and the TiLite Pilot.

It has been well established that the importance of self-initiated mobility is essential to a child’s development. The ability to determine when and where you would like to move impacts multiple body systems. This self-directed mobility can positively influence a child’s ability to locate and track objects in their environment, understand movement planning, improve communication, and enhance emotional and cognitive development. With the TILite Pilot, we are creating an opportunity to support these developmental milestones through self-initiated manual wheeled mobility.

Ergonomic Seating and Manual Wheelchairs

Everyone has experienced an ergonomic seat design at some time or another. If you look at the seats in our cars, offices or even in waiting rooms ergonomic design is used because those making the chairs understand that the more the chair contours and fits a person, the less work the person must do to maintain good posture. Ergonomic seating has been underutilized in manual wheelchair design because we have customarily been dependent on cushions and backrests for postural support and positioning. We’ve also used linear seat slope as a method of providing pelvic stability, but this comes with important considerations. So, what is the difference between using traditional linear seat slope and ergonomic seating? We will take a closer look at the differences and show you why ergonomic seating is an amazing advancement in seating design for a person using a manual wheelchair.
