New forehead stabiliser looks to help customers with mobility needs
Pressure and comfort solutions specialist Gel Ovations Europe has launched its new Multifunction Forehead Stabiliser which can be used in a range of applications, such as wheelchairs, shower chairs and paediatric functional seating.
The Multifunction Forehead Stabiliser is suitable for customers with cerebral palsy, motor neurone disease, Huntington’s Disease, spinal injury and other conditions requiring cranial stabilisation.
Part of the company’s growing Sta-Rite range of rehabilitation solutions, the new unit combines a headrest and multi-adjustable Forehead Stabiliser. It has been designed to provide users with ‘head drop’ with a higher level of comfort and skin protection compared to traditional forehead straps.
Developed in consultation with occupational therapists, rehabilitation specialists and end-users, the new unit has been designed for use in a variety of applications including wheelchairs, shower chairs, and children’s functional seating.
The cranial equilibrium maintained by the unit, says Gel Ovations, makes the Sta-Rite unit particularly suitable for users who use eye controls to operate their computers and smart devices.
The Forehead Stabiliser incorporates Gel Ovation’s Dimensional Gel Padding for added support and comfort. Encased in an easy-clean neoprene cover, the gel inner core provides cooling, whilst eliminating shearing, friction and pressure.
Adaptors are also available, enabling the client to use the stabiliser with their existing headrest. The adaptors available are 1” Ball, ¾” Ball, Whitmeyer and Comfort Company.
Constructed from high-strength lightweight aluminum alloy, the Forehead Stabiliser has been designed to be easily adjusted to the user’s physical needs, locking securely in place for maximum user safety and stability at all times.
Available in a choice of three standard headrest sizes from 10 inches to 14 inches in length, the stabiliser has been designed to be easily released and flips back out of the way by 180 degrees.
Sta-Rite manufactures a comprehensive range of wheelchair accessories, engineered for strength and flexibility, featuring Gel Ovations advanced dimensional gel padding for added comfort.https://thiis.co.uk/new-forehead-stabiliser-looks-to-help-customers-with-mobility-needs/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Gel-Ovations-Sta-Rite.jpg?fit=900%2C900&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Gel-Ovations-Sta-Rite.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomSupplier Newscranial stabilisation,forehead stabiliser,Gel Ovations Europe,mobility needs,Multifunction Forehead Stabiliser,pressure solutions,rehabilitation solutions,Sta-Rite rangePressure and comfort solutions specialist Gel Ovations Europe has launched its new Multifunction Forehead Stabiliser which can be used in a range of applications, such as wheelchairs, shower chairs and paediatric functional seating.
