The Position Pro Insert is an adaptive positioning device that improves wheelchair positioning and reduces pressure for people who propel their wheelchair with their feet. Position Pro products can be used with standard wheelchair cushions to improve patient positioning and reduce pressure.
The Position Pro products are Advanced Positioning Orthotic Devices (APODs) – highly structured devices that intelligently “taking the sling out of the sling seats” of standard manual wheelchairs. The Position Pro APODs provide an improved platform for patient positioning and enhance sitting support and stability, while reducing forward migration and sacral sitting.
The Position Pro APODs are designed to maintain a low seat-to-floor height for the wheelchair, so they are ideal for people who propel their wheelchair with their feet.
Improved wheelchair positioning promotes a uniform distribution of weight and reduces concentrations of pressure. The Position Pro products have been shown to reduce pressure by 25% - 40% and work with any standard wheelchair cushion.
