Evaluation on using device

Experimented induction of the balance with respect to the force of gravity. Result: release of the joints, alignment of body segments. It has been carried out the simulation of the anterior-posterior tilt combined with the lateral tilt.

Delivery of the first positioning system

Frame with anterior-posterior tilt up to 30° and lateral tilt of 5° on the right side. Contoured positioning cushion with asymmetric cut of 7.5 cm. on left side. Hip guides of which the right one is longer that the left. Pelvic belt. Arm supports customised, the right one is different from the left one. They are also provided with fixing straps. Positioning backrest with foam bespoke insert. Thoracic supports. Trunk stabilising harness with shoulders retractor pads. Head positioning system with occipital and sub-occipital supports.

5 years later

Delivery of the second positioning system installed on a power chair equipped with environmental controller. Contoured positioning cushion with asymmetric cut of 4 cm. on the left side. Anterior-posterior tilt up to 15° and lateral tilt of 2,5° on right side. Hip guides and flat arm supports with differentiated positioning. Positioning backrest with foam bespoke insert.
