Interview with physiotherapist Bengt Engström about movement and postural health for wheelchair users

17. May. 2016.

Sit better. Move better. Feel better. In this video and interview with physiotherapist Bengt Engström, he talks about the importance of movement and postural health for wheelchair users. We call it Ability Based Seating™

Since the beginning, Bo Lindqvist, sitting in a wheelchair himself, has been in charge of our wheelchair development. He used the experience from his own spinal injury and aimed to create a wheelchair that would make him stronger and faster. Today – 40 years later – he works more with the elderly target group and also with comfort wheelchairs.

We want to create possibilities for wheelchair users and strive for them to be as active as possible. The position of the user will influence the activity performance. Our aim is to create a stable base and enable the user to have the best possible postural control, giving them the ability to be more active. Etac Cross 5 can be set up to accommodate individual needs. Our Cross 5 is also easy to readjust with a range of accessories that can be added or changed whenever the user needs change.
