Because Every Body is Different
Every wheelchair user is different, with their own individual needs and this own unique set of challenges.
A solid foundation is the base for a stable posture, requiring a cushion to support the user’s pelvis for their unique physical requirements. Which is exactly what the Constructa cushion does.
Our Most Anatomically Adaptable Cushion
The latest research shows that asymmetric limited hip flexion is closely linked to the development of other conditions, including pelvic obliquity, trunk asymmetry, scoliosis and windswept hip distortion.
A wheelchair cushion that can accommodate asymmetrical hip angles is able to maintain or improve posture over time, instead of contributing to the development of other postural conditions.
The Constructa system is a range of modular cushions which can adapt to accommodate complex postural needs for users of all ages. From simple seating requirements to the most challenging demands, the result is better seating which minimises pressure while maximising comfort.
Available in 14″ – 20″ Widths
The simplified version of this innovative modular cushion features a flat base with positioning blocks and contouring pads designed to deliver refined support which can be adjusted for the individual user.
Thigh supports and ischial well can be adjusted to accommodate rotation, growth (with seat depth and width adjustments) and to offload high-risk pressure areas. The ischial insert and overlay also help to distribute and reduce peak pressure points.
Available in 14″ – 20″ Widths
An array of improved positioning features (including adjustable blocks for growth or asymmetry as well as adjustable contours for thigh and pelvic control) dramatically enhance the adjustment range.
A structured ischial well distributes and offloads pressure, adding to the comfort and overall experience for the user. This ability to provide complex custom solutions with off-the-shelf products means clinicians can quickly provide relief for users with a wide range of physical challenges, including…
- Flexion limitations
- Pelvic obliquities
- Leg length discrepancies
Paediatric 10″-12″ Widths
Designed to give young users the best possible start to life, providing customisable support in-line with critical early intervention practices.
Created specifically for infants and children between 6 months and 8 years, the Wonderseat Constructa cushion gives children more comfort and security, parents more peace of mind, and therapists more tools to address clinical issues.
The Constructa range of cushions was designed to accommodate and compensate for a wide range of symmetric and asymmetric postures.
Users who will benefit the most from this highly adaptable system include…
- Those who need to balance, stabilise, and maintain positioning of the legs and pelvis.
- Those who need pressure relief under bony prominences.
- Those who may need changes in position due to growth or surgery.
- Individuals leg length discrepancies, wind-swept, pelvic obliquity, pelvic rotation, posterior/anterior pelvic tilt.
- Individuals with a moderate risk of pressure injuries/decubitis pressure sores.
- Individuals with adduction and abduction of the legs.
The ground-breaking design of our cushion gives therapists the ability to create a configuration which satisfies even the most complex postural requirements. In doing so, the Constructa Cushion will help…
- Prevent the ischial tuberosities from sliding forward.
- Provide offloading of the ischial tuberosities.
- Obtain correct hip angles and flexion angles of the thighs.
- Maintain correct transverse thigh angles.
A stylish cover which is comfortable, breathable and offers protection for the skin.
Replaces lateral pelvic supports with one continuous, flexible lateral and posterior pelvic support.
Providing posterior support to the pelvis can promote neutral alignment of the pelvis and limit presentations such as:
• Posterior Pelvic Tilt
• Pelvis sliding forward
It can also be used to reduce pressure on the ischial tuberosities with improved offloading.
Available in High Contour only.
Compatible with Constructa Flex and Shape.
