Pressure relief is an important issue for many wheelchair users. People who don't have feeling in areas where pressure
exists, who can't weight shift or are incontinent are at risk for pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers are areas where
blood flow is restricted due to a combination of pressure, heat and moisture may cause the tissue to die. Untreated,
a pressure ulcers will grow in size and become a serious health issue. At Handi Medical we have trained certified
rehab professionals (ATP/SMS/CRTS) who can perform pressure mapping for you or a client on different types of cushions
or backs to help determine the appropriate pressure relieving cushion or back while maintaining the stability needed
in their wheelchair. Handi Medical also works closely with many rehab centers in the area for customized seating.
