PRODUCTS

VICAIR

Vicair_logo_RGB_WEB.jpg

A complete range of high quality pressure care products including wheelchair cushions, wheelchair backrest cushions and mattress replacements. Each product is filled with hundreds of air filled Vicair SmartCells. The shape and structure of the SmartCells allows them to move easily against each other and to conform precisely to the body's contours. The result is maximal comfort, stability and superior pressure distribution.

Obi is a robotic feeding device that gives people who have difficulties feeding themselves a greater level of independence and choice when eating.  The Obi works by automating the motion of a human arm and allows the user to not only select the food they would like to eat, but also dictate the pace at which they eat.

VELA Tango is a series of office chairs developed to facilitate activity and independence at home, school and/or in the work place. The unique central brake ensures stability and safety, particularly during transfers on and off the chair and when working.  The Vela chair is a mobile chair, with four smoothly running wheels that enable easy self-propulsion using the feet.

Product Trials

An important step in prescribing the right assistive technology, is the opportunity to try the equipment.  The Therapy Collective recognises that trialling equipment in the context of the client's home, school or work environment is integral to the decision making process and we will work with clinicians to facilitate practical equipment trials.  

Our trials will involve support and guidance at all stages of the process.  Assistance with product selection, adjustments, customisations and clinical justification for funding applications are all aspects that The Therapy Collective can provide support with to ensure a stress-free, uncomplicated and enjoyable process for all. 

 

The Therapy Collective is happy to work with individual therapists, allied health teams or organisations to facilitate multiple client trials, product inservices and demonstrations.
