Wade Lawrence interviewed for Mobility Management article on seating surfaces

The March issue of Mobility Management magazine featured a story on seating in the bathroom. Our representative Wade Lawrence was interviewed about the seating options with our Ocean shower chairs. Optimal Seating on All Surfaces talks about using the same criteria for choosing the seating surface on your shower chair that you used for your wheelchair choice. Clarke Health Care offers a selection of seating overlays for its Ocean shower chairs. Choosing the appropriate seating surface can reduce the risk of pressure injuries.

Tuesday, June 14

Our Aquatec OceanDual shower chair was recently selected for use by Dr Stephen Hawking. An inquiry from Vanity Fair magazine, who in part sponsored his trip, resulted in an OceanDual to accompany Dr Hawking while visiting New York City. The OceanDual, with tilt-in-space and recline positioning, met his personal hygiene needs and matched what he used at home. Dr Hawking was in town to promote a new project, "Breakthrough Starshot", to send Nano space crafts to the nearest star system.
