LoopSORG

The seat shell base frame that grows with the patient

LoopSORG is a seat shell base frame which adapts easily to the rapid changes of its users and their care – and in reference to size, therapy progress and changes of the symptoms.

 

LoopSORG


Features

Overview

Individually manufactured according to your measurements and needs.

  • LoopSORGis tiltable from -5° to +35° or from +2,5° to +40°
  • Parameters such as seat height, seat position/centre of gravity, distance of foot plate/s etc. can be adjusted precisely to the user
  • LoopSORGhas a wide product range
  • LoopSORG stands for highest patient benegit and user-friendly handling in the best technical quality– made in Germany.
  • German Aid Index Number 26.99.01.3034 (push rim version)
  • German Aid Index Number 26.99.01.1045 (12″-version)
  • LoopSORG is suitable for children, adolescents and adults

 


Growable

Each frame width can be enlarged by 4cm. The seat depth can be extended in all sizes up to 6 cm backward. And the position of the leg rest/s can be displaced forward up to 7 cm. Also, all measurements can be set precisely to the user. Thus, LoopSORG is a seat shell-base that can adjust over the years to the user, the therapy concept and of course a new seat shell. And for children as well as for adolescents and adults.

 


Conversion artist

Loop can not only convert in the dimensions, but also with its wide product range. With this it can be equipped for the therapy measures and fuctions. Sorg’s modular assembly system makes this possible.


 User friendly

The LoopSORG stands for an exact definable but adaptable therapy plan with the greatest possible patient use. Thanks to its polished concept, the thought through details and the highest technical processing quality it also allows for a user friendly handling.

Therapeutical approach

Therapeutical approach

With LoopSORG  several impairments and dysfunctions can be compensated or also initialize and strengthen existing skills:

  • Through the seat tilt function and the adjustment of the back, the user notices a change in the spatial position that is fundamentally important for the stimulation of his/her metabolism and perception.
  • The easy change between a lean back and an upright position additionally causes a change in loading and relief of all muscle groups. As a result, the user is prevented from contractures and tonus dysfunctions such as spasms and relieved from pain and pressure caused by positioning. A bedsore prophylaxis can be achieved as well.
  • The intentionally applied constant change of position prevents a reflex overlap but at least compensates and reduces its consequences.
  • The muscular stimulation is accompanied by a skeletal stabilization and strengthening that can at least stabilize an existing scoliosis and, if necessary, even alleviate it.
  • At the same time, the muscular stimulation builds up successively the complete tonicity, in particular the tonicity of the upper extremities achieving in the best of cases a warily (re-)mobilization of the user (to the point of initiating activities to walk after severe traumata).
  • Thus, daily tasks are considered feasible again which can intend, initialize and build up an autonomous life-style.
  • All functions can be used with only one hand (tilt function, adjustment of the back angle, locking and unlocking the seat shell, adjustment of the leg support etc.). Thus, the auxiliary person can always use the other hand for helping and securing the user which significantly facilitates the use in daily therapy routine.
  • The frequent change between an active and inactive position can be easily adapted to the individual needs of the user using and developing further his/her remaining functions.
  • The slight seat inclination to the front significantly facilitates the transfer in and out of the seat shell-base provoking considerably less spasms.
