Provides Comfort and Support

A pressure redistributing cushion now comes standard on all Evolution Mobility Wheelchairs.  The updated multilayered cushion consists of four layers with varying densities and composition to address a multitude of issues associated with longer bouts of sitting including heat, moisture, pressure and sheer.  Adding comfort and improving autonomy can reduce agitation and reduce wheelchair falls.  The Evolution Mobility Chair can serve as a valuable geri chair alternative.

Most Evolution Chairs are ordered with the SA-15 Foot Supports.  If the Evolution Mobility Chair will ever be used as a transport chair foot supports are necessary.  The Self Storing, Swing Away Foot Supports tuck neatly and discretely to the inside of the chair.  No more removing foot supports only to misplace them and not have them handy when needed.

“The Optima chairs are amazing. The residents sit so comfortably in them, and they have really helped reduced our fall rates.  We started using a chair on 1 resident who was a frequent faller from her chair, her falls reduced so much we decided to purchase another.  The results in the reduction of falls again was amazing.  The chair is not a restraint the resident can still get out of the chair, they just are so comfortable they don’t attempt to get out.  We now have 4 chairs in our facility and have just ordered another.  I would certainly recommend giving Optima chairs a try.” D.O.N. – Alexandria, MN
