(Advanced Positioning Orthotic Device)

The Engage APOD® provides advanced positioning support and skin protection for people who are unable to independently maintain an upright seated position in their wheelchair by combining the structure of orthotics with principles of wheelchair seating.

The Engage APOD® biomechanically aligns the hips and pelvis to address the etiology of medium to severe wheelchair positioning abnormalities to reduce restraints, falls, pressure injuries, aspiration, pain, and re-hospitalizations. Upright and midline positioning is maintained to engage the user both physically and psycho-socially to improve safety, comfort, and dignity. 

Addresses the Etiology of Common Positioning Abnormalities
  • Sacral Sitting/Sliding
  • Pelvic Thrusting
  • Lateral Leaning
  • Forward Leaning
  • Extensor Tone/Flaccid Tone
  • Contractures
  • Low Sitting Tolerance
  • Hip Asymmetries

The PostureWorks Engage
provides us with a whole new
avenue for positioning that we didn’t
have before. We have used it with our
most difficult positioning residents and they
are all sitting beautifully. It is putting their
entire body into alignment, and we are seeing
carryover in their ability to eat, reducing the
risk of aspiration.

The anterior bolster height encourages the desired degree of hip flexion to minimize sliding forward
Medical-Grade Foam Medical-grade visco and high-density foams are shaped to create a pelvic well posteriorly to promote a neutral pelvis and upright midline position, while still allowing for sage, functional transfers
