Breathing in Children with Cerebral Palsy

Ergonomic chairs are designed to confirm to a person’s physical dimensions, allowing them to sit naturally and comfortably for long periods of time, while reducing the risk of pressure ulcers. Ergonomic system (Intelligent s-shaped ergonomic seating) provides efficient pressure relief by spreading weight over a greater area, at the same time provides stabilization and reduced sliding. With their lightweight frames and seats designed to reduce or prevent pressure points, ergonomic wheelchairs provide a comfortable option for mobility impaired users who have the upper body strength to propel themselves, or a caregiver strong enough to do so.

Karma Ergo Wheelchair features an ergonomic "S" shaped seat that provides the perfect shape to fit the human body to relieve pressure, increase stabilization, weight distribution and lower the risk of pressure sores and scoliosis.

Cerebral Palsy Wheelchair Children is a birth injury that happens to the brain at birth or just before birth. Because the injury involves the brain and because the brain is still often a mystery to several doctors, cerebral palsy can manifest in a number of different ways. Some children have more trouble with seizures than spasticity, or some children have intellectual disabilities while other children do not.
