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.

Support Base Insert that Improves Positioning and Protects Skin
Improves Positioning
  • Takes hammock out of sling seat
  • Promotes a neutral pelvis
  • Helps take user out of internal rotation
  • Helps take user out of adduction
  • Discourages sacral sitting and sliding
  • Maintains low seat to floor height
Protects Skin Redistributes pressure by 25-40% when used with the Matrix and Silver Care Basic cushions
Improves Comfort Increases stability and sitting tolerance


I really like the Matrix
cushion with the Position
Pro Insert. I believe this was
especially helpful for my patient with
bilateral above-knee amputations as he
is at less risk for skin breakdown at his
incision site, and it resulted in increased
independence with functional
transfers.
