POSITION PRO INSERT
The Position Pro is a rigid support base insert that improves positioning by taking the hammock out of sling seats. It is designed for use with the Matrix Skin Protection cushion and the Silver Care Basic General Use cushion to actively promote stable, symmetrical wheelchair positioning for people who cannot maintain this on their own.

incision site, and it resulted in increased
independence with functional
