Mobility equipment supplier AAT GB has launched Base Doro, a device that delivers ‘optimal’ pelvic and torso stabilisation, while eliminating complex prescriptions of a combination of postural support cushions.

Hip stabilisation and correction without pressure can be difficult to address, according to AAT, so with the Base Doro it set out to deliver a single cushion with prominent pommel provides posterior and lateral support on any chair or wheelchair.

The vacuum technology within the cushion means it is variable and adjustable, enabling exact, pressure-free support for the whole pelvis while the strategic pommel enables abduction of the legs. Side lateral panels that extend beyond the hip girdle help stabilise and correct the whole pelvis, while an integral neoprene strap provides additional safety when in use.

Stability and security for the user can also encourage torso movement during daily activities, thus helping increase strength for some musculoskeletal conditions.

Base Doro can be set up for each user, and quickly and easily adjusted as needed. Based on the beanbag concept, a pump removes air to fix the cushion to the exact configuration of each user and hold them without pressure.

Any progressive change required to maintain support and comfort can be undertaken at home by the care-giver (with appropriate qualified training) and there is no need for lengthy and costly re-moulding.

Available in four sizes, Base Doro can be used with all clients from child to adult. The cushion’s ‘technologically advanced’, breatheable neoprene cover can be wiped clean to maintain hygiene; its integral elasticity has the flexibility to “immerse” the buttocks without friction.

A hand pump is supplied as standard. Optional accessories include an electric pump, mounting strap and flexible foam-padded cover.

Peter Wingrave AAT Director said: “Base Doro takes seated support to a new level. To our knowledge, nothing else gives, in just one cushion, the degree of support, and infinite variability to each person (client or patient).

“It will make postural seating prescription much simpler, easier and cost-effective for occupational therapists.

“Just one cushion can turn almost any chair into a postural chair and ensure appropriate support for wheelchair users. It delivers transferrable comfort.”

Base Doro compliments the range of vacuum posture cushions already available from AAT, including the Comfortable Plus Duo seat and back support, Chilli Bean seat and Grande mattress.

Recently, AAT GB attained Class I medical device classification for its range of S-Max stairclimbers which enables users with restricted mobility to get up and down stairs.
