Achieving positive seating and positioning client outcomes has always been at the forefront of what we do at Specialised Wheelchair Company.
We are fortunate enough to offer the Stabilo Vacuum positioning range in Australia, and these highly flexible products offer a large range of secondary seating, positioning, and sleep ideas only limited by your imagination.
WHY WE LOVE THE STABILO MULTISEAT
Over the years we have met a lot of families with children with special needs, and one of their biggest challenges was to transfer their child from their daily seating equipment (eg wheelchair) into a secondary activity be that a beach chair, car seat or other daily activity while maintaining posture and comfort.
One stand out in the Stabilo range has been the Stabilo Multiseat. The Multiseat is a car seat, orthopaedic seat, and swing, all in one. From the outdoors to the indoors and even in the car this system can be used as a unique solution to allow children with complex postures to be positioned well during activities.
With the Multiseat you can maintain a correct position while driving, preventing deformation. It also provides a safe head support and secures and stabilises the head and neck of spine of people with reduced or no head control.
HOW IT WORKS
The Multiseat’s three separate cushions allow for individual adjustment to the user’s body shape. Each element of the padding – the seat, the backrest, the headrest – can be moulded individually. The aluminium frame strengthens the cushions’ stiffness and at the same time provides adjustment.
Vacuum forming the Stabilo enables support and stabilisation to accommodate asymmetries.
The cushions are water resistant and easy to maintain which is a bonus.
WHO IT IS FOR
The Stabilo Multiseat is available in a medium (for users up to 1.25m) and large (for users up to 1.7m). Ideal for people with reduced muscle tension, as it provides support while sitting.
The Stabilo Multi-seat is tested to European standards, and currently pending AuSAP assessment and is available to purchase.
