Anti-decubitus


Anti-decubitus is medical terminology used in preventing redness or small wounds on the skin, originated from sitting or lying down without moving over an extended period of time.
People who have to sit for a long period of time and can't shift position benefit from anti-decubitus means a lot.  Think of wheelchair users in particular or users of a socalled lift assist chair, people who sit all day long. Fort this target group anti-decubitus is being realised by offering a correct sitting posture and a good pressure distribution. 

Anti-decubitus sitting orthosis

Lewis Seating Systems delivers a anti-decubitus sitting orthosis for wheelchairs, consisting of different products. 

The Lewis anti-decubitus sitting orthosis provides a very efficient way of offering a correct sitting posture, which demands no or very little energy. And therefore generates such a pressure distribution that the risk of tissue damage is reduced to a minimum. A correct sitting posture diminishes the peak pressure on the coccyx (tailbone) and the ischial tuberosities. The Lewis sitting orthosis transfers the pressure on the coccyx (tailbone) and the ischial tuberosities in a biomechanical way to the upper leg and therefore provides a correct pressure distribution. A correct pressure distribution sees to the sensitive parts on the seat area to be less burdened and that this pressure is been taken over  by parts less sensitive.
