How do I select STABILO products, depending on the type of wheelchair or seat?
Cushions are selected based on the condition and the wheelchair. In sports wheelchairs, most applicable are the Base or comfortable Elite seats and Comfortable backrest. They provide a comfortable seat in conjunction with a stabilising back adjusted to the deformation of the torso. Using a Stabilo backrest higher than the back of the wheelchair doesn’t provide adequate stiffness, so then you need a supplementary seat back or headrest. In deep wheelchairs, most commonly a corset stabilising support is used to decrease the risk of extending the deformation of the torso. A supplement to this is the Comfortable Plus Duo, where, in addition, there is the option to correct the position of the pelvis and legs.
