Printer-friendly version

Boston, MA, July 14, 2011 – The Ascender™ line of orthopedic, bariatric, and patient chairs has become one of the top orthopedic seating systems in the country with the one abiding design principle of assuring safety for the patient and the caregiver.

The new line of Ascender Transporter™ Seating System contains the necessary features to properly position patients and provide safety. Ascender™ Transporters are easy to push and maneuver. They offer safe movement of bariatric patients throughout a facility. The seating systems help protect corrective procedures and reduce lifting by the caregivers, preventing injury to both caregivers and patients. The Ascender™ features a retractable footrest and extended arm grips allowing for a safe and easy entry and exit, while at the same time helping to protect the caregiver from back injuries during transfer activities. The Ascender™ line offers added comfort for those in extended seating positions. In order to accommodate to different body types, the Ascender™ Transporter provides four different widths and weight capacities to meet the needs of bariatric patients.

Clinicians are provided with additional patient positioning options with the accessory E-Z Leg Up. This optional feature enhances the functionality of the seating system in healthcare facilities and homes. The E-Z Leg Up is a fully adjustable system that meets a wide variety of surgical, medical, and rehabilitation needs. The practicality and easy usage makes it user-friendly, in addition to offering a broad range of positions used for either or both left and right legs. The soft, non-slip support on the E-Z Leg Up enhances patient comfort. This accessory is ideal for post-surgery recovery phase following hip replacements or fractures; femur fracture; knee replacement or reconstruction; ligament or tendon repair; tibial or ankle fractures and amputation above or below the knee as stump support. The leg support is excellent for other medical conditions such as phlebitis, peripheral edemas and wound care management.
