The removable cushions make it possible to change the character of the chair by choosing a back cushion with more or less support or a seat cushion which is optimal for the user in terms of shaping and firmness.
For the user, the removable cushion system means that the seat is constructed according exactly to his or her physical conditions and needs of stability and pressure relieving capacities. In addition, the chair can be cost effectively modified when the user’s needs change over time.
For the local authorities or health insurance organizations, which in many cases carry part of the economic investment in wheelchairs and other appliances for disabled citizens, there are considerable advantages in choosing a seat with removable cushions because of lower costs when adapting the chair to the changing needs of the user, but also when reusing the chair for another user. In such cases, a used COMFORT or ADVANCE chair can be adapted to a new user simply by changing the seat- and back cushions.
