Tru-Shape Simulator

The Tru-Shape Simulator is ideal for use during a client fitting for Tru-Shape custom contoured seating. It accommodates the Tru-Shape 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 Tru-Shape 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!

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.

Cushion Considerations: Methods of Pressure Redistribution

This is the 1st blog in our series about cushion considerations. Check out theWheelchair Seating and Positioning Guidefor more information about wheelchair seating.

Pressure cannot be eliminated in seating, so instead, we must focus on the redistribution of pressure. There are different theories used to achieve the distribution of pressure; immersion/envelopment and offloading/redirecting.
