Overview

 

This presentation will provide an overview of the seating products from Ki Mobility.  The foundation will include a review of some of the scientific principles involved in wheelchair cushion design, and then an explanation of how that science was incorporated into the design of the Ki Mobility products. Further discussion will address the features of the cushions that make them ‘best in class’.  Design elements common to all the Ki Mobility cushions, as well as distinctive features for each of the cushion codes from E2601 through E2607 will be shown. Finally, this presentation will introduce the newest additions to the Ki Mobility family of seating products, the Axiom backs, and Axiom Custom Seating.
