Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution collaboration with the Comfort Company to offer their Acta-Back® Wheelchair System to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Bozeman, Montana, the Comfort Company develops “one of a kind mobility solutions for individuals with one of a kind needs”. As a world-class designer and manufacturer of rehabilitation and mobility support products since 1987, the Comfort Company offers innovative and superior quality product lines which include wheelchair seating solutions; pediatric, bariatric and amputee support solutions; and custom fit seating solutions for a wide variety of specific physical issues.
Specifically designed for spinal curvature issues, the Acta-Back® Wheelchair System increases comfort and support for users with kyphosis, scoliosis and lumbar problems. Offering precise contours with its moldable center section, the lightweight and indestructible aluminum shell has the capability to customize individual modifications without sacrificing the back's integrity. Utilizing the Comfort Company's patented Compass Hardware, back adjustments can be made without transferring the user, and this hardware also helps to eliminate the loss of seat depth when making angle adjustments. This system provides a total back angle/recline of +/- 15-degrees from the center. Headrest and laterals-compatible, comfort is further increased by the three-layer foam construction which includes a Visco topper layer, and the moldable aluminum stays are offset from the center, removing pressure points from the spine, and increasing hip and scapula relief.
The Acta-Back® comes in a wide assortment of sizes and models to more perfectly customize this support to match any user's specific needs. Fabric choices include the breathable Stretch-Air, specifically designed for air transmission and heat reduction, and the water-resistant Comfort-Tek, featuring multidimensional stretch to help alleviate pressure on bony prominences. “We are delighted to introduce more consumers to the feature-rich Acta-Back® Wheelchair System from the Comfort Company,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This innovative wheelchair seat back system more perfectly accommodates users with spinal curvature issues, providing more appropriate and comfortable support.
