In conjunction with our friends at Ormesa, Astris PME are pleased to announce a series of clinical education workshops next month (November 2019). These workshops are exclusively available to therapists and their support staff.
From the 13th January 2020, Astris PME will have an exclusive selection of fabric colours available for the Careflex SmartSeatPro. The SmartSeatPro by Careflex is a revolutionary modular chair that takes specialist seating to a new level. This seating system is highly adjustable and suitable for individuals with complex posture and pressure management needs.
For people with a disability, functional seating is critical; however, it’s not only wheelchair seating that is typical for daily use. Hygiene regimes are also part of a person’s daily routine – whether an adult or child. Each client will have their own specific needs, preferences and desired outcomes for using their bath/hygiene equipment for specific activities, such as toileting and showering. Optimal positioning can be achieved safely if the right equipment is chosen.
Callum is a 20 year old gentleman who enjoys spending time with his family. He has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy; communicating solely through eye movements. Callum has undergone surgery for spinal rods with pelvic fusion, which was deemed successful but he relies heavily on his wheelchair and range of specialist equipment at home.
