Danish equipment supplier, Etac R82, is set to debut a new version of the established x:panda paediatric seating system at Kidz to Adultz next month.
Launched in 2007, the original R82 x:panda seating system has become one of the market’s most widespread modular seats.
The x:panda helps children, with a range of conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, to maintain neutral pelvic positioning during involuntary extension and offers contoured support to the spine.
The new x:panda Evolution builds on the previous model to provide a seating solution that improves on ergonomics.
It is designed to provide a more positive impact on muscle tone and movement through a range of new features.
These include improved armrests, fixed wedges, visual measurement markings, cushions and covers.
These additional elements aim to complement original retained features such as the dynamic backrest, recline, full adjustability and accessory range.
Acting as an assured base, the x:panda can be easily adjusted to improve pelvic, thigh and feet stability which in turn increases trunk, shoulder and head balance.
As with the original design, the Evolution can be mounted onto a range of manoeuvrable and adjustable R82 frames.
Jon Preater, Etac R82’s managing director, said: “The new x:panda Evolution represents a significant innovation in assistive seating for children.
“Its clinical and ergonomic excellence is combined with world-class design, aesthetics and practically – all focused on improving daily living, development and enjoyment.”
