Permobil has launched a solutions-based selection tool on its website and new resources for clinics and providers to easily find the right cushions based on their individual patients’ needs, it announces.

“Permobil offers seating solutions for almost everyone. Our different cushion mediums include flowing air, foam, non-flowing air, and hybrids. We understand individuals have varying abilities and requirements, so we offer solutions that range from basic to adjustable to custom.

“On our new website, you can focus your search for a cushion based on product features such as skin protection, positioning, medium, and much more, so that you are finding product options that are best suited for your clients.”

— Teresa Ellison, director of product marketing for Permobil’s seating and positioning segment in the Americas

Clinicians and ATPs will now be able to reference a combined brochure from Permobil with cushion products from companies offering CRT, including ROHO and Comfort Company. For an even simpler approach, printed posters will be made available through Permobil’s sales team to clinics and providers for a quick reference guide.

“On the website, brochure, and poster, each Permobil cushion is ranked based on three attributes of great seating: skin & soft tissue protection, positioning, and stability. Within the skin protection category, we further focus on the redistribution of pressure through the options of immersion, envelopment, and offloading.”

— Tricia Garven, regional clinical education manager

This new solutions approach has given Permobil the chance to truly compare and thoughtfully present their variety of wheelchair cushions available, the company adds in a media release.

“By bringing our portfolios together under one brand, we were able to streamline product offerings as well as the selection process to truly show the quality solutions available for individuals. We have taken this approach with our wheelchair back supports, too, and summarized our varying options in a new brochure available now.

“We have even more seating and positioning resources planned for later this year to provide support to targeted user groups and products such as pediatric, long-term care, accessories, and ancillary products.”

— Audra Watt, vice president of marketing
