Cushions used on wheelchairs with a sling seat base have a hammocking effect that lowers their effectiveness and decreases pressure distribution. A rigidizer is inserted underneath the cushion to increase stability and provide a firm base of support to reduce hammocking.
Retractable tubing for home oxygen therapy users. Meant to decrease falls resulting from trips on tubing normally sprawled across the floor. The tube’s natural tension pulls it into a compact spiral when not need, but can be stretched up to 15 feet.
A power wheelchair that can adjust to put the user into a standing position. Great for people that have ongoing issues with pressure ulcers on the coccyx or circulation issues. Also allows one to be more functional such as reaching for higher surfaces like cupboards.

A module that connects to a U step walker and projects a laser onto the floor indicating where one’s feet should be when ambulating. This will cue the user to walk close to the walker to decrease the risk of falls and increase stability.
