“Their amazing technology has completely changed not only the wheelchair cushion industry, but has changed the shape of all seat and bed cushioning applications."
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with The ROHO Group, Incorporated, to offer Dry Floatation® wheelchair cushions, pillows, mattresses and overlays to a larger consumer market. Headquartered in Belleville, Illinois, The ROHO Group has been the leading pioneer in Shape Fitting Technology®, or Dry Floatation®, as it is more commonly referred to in the medical industry, since 1973. The technology was originally invented for wheelchair users, but is now also being used for many diverse applications, such as seat cushions for motorcycles, helicopters, planes, cars, and trucks, along with pillows, mattresses and office chairs. Shape Fitting Technology® is a system of soft, flexible air cells interconnected by small channels that allows air to flow from one cell to another at a controlled rate. This technology sets ROHO apart from their competitors with its ability to protect the body from multiple forces—friction, pressure, shock, shear and vibration—while maintaining the same level of protection and comfort indefinitely.
ROHO currently holds 220 patents in 60 countries, and their product line includes office, car and general purpose seat cushions, wheelchair cushions, pillows and mattresses, scooter and Moped seat cushions, bleacher and stadium seat cushions, motorcycle overlay seating systems, commercial truck/OTR overlay seating, and plane, helicopter, and Humvee overlay seating. All of the ROHO products feature a valve that allows adjustment of the air it holds, letting each individual user customize the product according to his/her specifications to achieve the perfect level of comfort. These products are designed to perfectly match every individual shape and contour, redistributing body weight to minimize pressure 'hot spots', promoting enhanced circulation and the ultimate in comfort.
The ROHO Group has been improving the quality of life for their users all over the world, first with wheelchair cushions, then hospital mattresses, and now for anyone who has to sit all day, such as truck drivers and motorcycle riders. Their Shape Fitting Technology® has also been used in Formula One Race cars, several major motion pictures, including “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Unbreakable”, and even in rescue efforts for the transfer of an Orca whale. “We are proud to introduce these Dry Floatation® wheelchair cushions, mattresses, overlays and pillows from The ROHO Group to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “Their amazing technology has completely changed not only the wheelchair cushion industry, but has changed the shape of all seat and bed cushioning applications. We know our customers will be absolutely delighted with these high quality and durable cushioning products from ROHO.”
