ABS Contoured Base 

Extra security against pelvic deterioration 
  • A neutral seating position - Ensures that the client's legs are positioning securely with the troughs preventing possible pelvic deterioration

  • The base is cut out at the rear of the base relieving pressure in the sacral area for increased comfort.

    • ABS Primenest® 2 Contoured Base

The composite foam pad is constructed from viscoelastic foam bonded to a high quality base foam, specifically designed with a rounded leading edge offering additional comfort to the user. The pressure relieving properties makes Primenest® 2 effective as a wheelchair cushion.

The specific combination of viscoelastic foam used in the production of PrimeNest® 2 enables a high degree of envelopment with the stability of the hips enhanced further by the contoured base. 

The XSensor® Pressure Mapping system shows excellent pressure distribution and client immersion with PrimeNest® 2 (see right).
