POSTURE, FUNCTION & COMFORT PELVIC STABILITY The most important feature of any seating or mobility system is its ability to provide pelvic stability (for tilt, rotation and obliquity) as this gives the optimum base for trunk and head alignment and upper limb function. The KIT Seating System provides uniquely adaptable pelvic support for teenagers and adults with some of the most challenging pelvic positions, both in terms of achieving optimal alignment and providing comfortable accommodation of their postural needs. POSTURE PELVIC STABILITY ISSUES Posterior pelvic tilt Pelvic rotation and...

The Pelvic Cradle opens flat making access for self-transfers and hoisting straightforward. The front buckle secures users safely in position. Adjustable Velcro side fastening tabs firmly support a range of positions from fixed posterior pelvic tilt to a functional anterior posture. The 4-point attachment ensures the user cannot submarine under the anterior strap. Used in conjunction with the Pelvic Cradle, the leg straps help prevent users with kyphotic postures from sliding into posterior tilt. When the backrest is set up to accommodate complex postures, the hip guides can be rotated to...

POSTURE, FUNCTION & COMFORT LEG & FOOT POSITIONING Seating systems also need to provide appropriate leg and foot support as this plays a crucial role in maintaining the stability of the pelvis, and therefore the alignment of the trunk and head. Often overlooked, hamstrings are frequently tight in those with limited movement and can disturb pelvic stability. In addition, the feet take up to 19% of body weight, and when unsupported can add to pressure and pelvic stability issues. The KIT Seating System’s pioneering leg and foot supports enable the user’s legs and feet to be supported in a...
