COMPLEX REHAB CHAIRS

Medically necessary individually constructed complex rehab manual and power wheelchairs are designed to meet the specific and unique medical and functional needs of an individual with significant disabilities and other medical conditions. Representatives of HME of Texas evaluate and assess the individualís needs and determine appropriate recommendations.

Why have a chair custom built?

A properly fitted wheelchair is necessary for individuals who must spend more than 8 hours a day in their chairs. A chair that is precisely fitted to size, weight, and physical requirements can prevent deterioration. When fitted with an improper chair, the body will be aligned in the incorrect position. A chair that is custom fit can improve day to day living by giving more independence to the individual.

At Home Medical Equipment of Texas, we provide specialized complex rehabilitation equipment design services to help sustain and increase independence. We take extra care to make sure that every chair meets the clinical and lifestyle needs of the individual. Customized rehab chairs produce significant benefits to the individuals using the equipment, to health care professionals, and to organizations paying the costs of health care.

 

SEATING & POSITIONING

 

Proper seating and positioning is imperative for individuals with medical and physical disabilities. It is difficult for these individuals to adjust their seating position independently. Without contour customized seating some are not capable (lacking the muscles) of staying upright by themselves and will gradually slide down or start to lean to one side. This tends to make some uncomfortable, feel unsafe and unstable. Therefore, caregivers have to regularly reposition the individual in order for them to stay upright. †

 

A detailed physical evaluation is conducted to determine current and expected seating and mobility needs. Specific measurements are taken and various equipment options are evaluated.

 

When seating and positioning is customized to contour an individual it will:

         Ensure safety and stability

         Provide comfort by managing pressure to reduce pain

         Promote and enable increased functional skills

         Maximize cardiopulmonary and gastrointestinal functioning
