The good seating position makes it possible to participate in everyday life
When Samuel was handed his new wheelchair, his spirits was high and both he and his parents were looking forward to using it.
The goal for him was to be able to sit in the wheelchair for a longer period of time without experiencing pain. Because Samuel wants to be there where it happens. There is a lot to experience when you are 10 years old.
Samuel did not have an optimum seating position in the old wheelchair and often complained that it hurt to sit. The balance of the head was challenged, and the seating position was generally no longer good. Driving and operating the electric functions of the seat did not work optimally.
The first focus has been to stabilize the pelvis with a special adapted foam cushion and to support Samuel’s back and scoliosis with asymmetrical external side supports. Work has also been done on the lumbar support, which has been central to the balance of Samuel’s head. Hip support in combination with the side supports also contribute significantly to this. An extra wide foot plate has been made, which allows for good support for the feet in order to provide maximum stability for the upper body.
Samuel and his farther taking the chair for the first outside test-drive.
The wheelchair is a TA iQ FWD with traction on the front wheels, which makes it easier for Samuel to get around outside on uneven surfaces. At the same time the wheelchair has a very small turning radius, which means that he can easily drive inside the house or where space is tight.
The TA iQ FWD can “grow” with Samuel. It only needs to be adjusted continuously so that it fits him perfectly.
Dear Samuel, we wish you all the best and we hope you have lots of wonderful experiences in your new chair.
