THE DELFI PRO FROM CONSOLOR MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE TO ANGEL
Six year old Angel Street from Dorset is a fantastic example of what a difference the recently launched Delfi Pro seating system from Consolor can make.
Angel was born with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy which affects the movement in all her limbs and means she requires extremely specialist seating as Angel’s OT Mary Morris explained: “As the OT here at Langside School www.diverseabilitiesplus.org.uk I have been heavily involved in the upgrading of Angel’s equipment and nothing is more vital than her seating system”. Working closely with Angel’s parents, Mary and the wheelchair clinic assessed many different seating systems however nothing could match the level of support and comfort Angel received from the Delfi Pro.
Mary continued: “Angel’s level of CP results in her having a strong extensor thrust and developing established patterns of movement which we are always looking to change. The clever design of the Delfi Pro offers Angel superb levels of support at all times. The expanding back rest allows her to push against it when she is in extension and then as she slowly relaxes it brings her back to a better position for her hips and helps her stay symmetrical. I would certainly recommend fellow OT’s and parents consider Consolor when looking to purchase a new seating system” concluded Mary.
The unique qualities of the Delfi Pro are what make it such a special product and set it apart from any other on the market. It has a Dynamic backrest, which allows the seating system to absorb spasticity and therefore prevents the child from losing pelvic position in the seat during spasm. To further prevent a posterior pelvic position from being adopted, the system is fitted with a fully adjustable pre-ischial bar. As well as comfort and functionality, the Delfi Pro provides the user with enhanced flexibility as it can be fitted to any model of wheelchair or powerchair and can easily be transferred between indoor and outdoor bases promoting increased freedom and independence for the user and family.
