Susie will now be focused on furthering the development and implementation of the company’s clinical strategy as it continues to promote the medical benefits of reducing heat and moisture build-up for wheelchair users.

In particular, the role will see her building on microclimate research and fully understanding the effects of overheating and over-sweating on wheelchair users, with the research being advanced through partnerships with universities & hospitals which will be presented at conferences worldwide.

“We are confident that the vast knowledge Susie has built-up will translate in stronger company resources and further assist us in training our commercial network” stated the company.

WheelAir’s next generation of cooling system seating applications

Established by Corien Staels in 2016, WheelAir was the first temperature control system designed specifically for wheelchairs, enabling self-regulation of the body temperature through convection, conduction and evaporation heat loss.

Initially entering the market with its cooling cushion, WheelAir recently launched its next generation of products at this year’s Rehacare, along with revamped branding and a new website.

The new range features a number of new options for different seating requirements, including partnering with rigid back wheelchair providers, custom moulded seating suppliers and powerchair manufacturers to pre-install its cooling system for end-users.
