FlexForm Custom Wheelchair Seating System | Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc.

FlexForm Custom Wheelchair Seating System

A next-generation, custom contoured wheelchair seating system that provides optimized pressure distribution, strategic friction and shear management, and exceptional dissipation of heat and moisture

FlexForm is a comprehensive seating solution, addressing:

  • Pressure distribution
  • Friction & shear
  • Microclimate (moisture & temperature)

FlexForm Reduces Weight-Bearing Loads in At-Risk Areas

FlexForm™ allows clinicians and suppliers to assess the seat surface from below; fine-tuning individual straps as needed for spot-relief of at-risk high pressure areas.
The durable web straps are positioned to conform to the user’s unique three-dimensional profile; ensuring maximum pressure redistribution away from at-risk areas, while enabling ventilation (heat & moisture dissipation) in the seat surface area.

GlideWear® Technology Provides Relief from Friction-Induced Shear

The custom-fabricated GlideWear® cover provides targeted friction and shear management; protecting the user’s skin from breakdown, while strategically limiting the low friction area to ensure stability for the user. Microclimate is optimized through a breathable cover in partnership with a thin ventilation layer; designed to transfer heat and moisture away from the skin.

Uniquely Designed for Optimized Shape Contouring and Personal Comfort

The seat support surface is a webbed (interwoven) three-dimensional contour, designed and built to capture and support the user’s unique anatomical specifications. It provides contours necessary for personal pressure distribution.
