Just wanted to let you know we received our son's beach wheelchair Wednesday. My husband assembled it and it is absolutely perfect for our son! It is such a great fit, it looks like it was custom made for him! He can't wait to go to the beach! My husband likes to sit on the floor when he watches TV, and last night, our son was in his beach chair, almost as low as his dad, watching TV right next to him! Thanks for the great service! - The Ostlings

Optional Stabilo Seating:
The STABILO is a seat of stable positioning with the capability to be easily shaped in any desired form and maintain it. In maintaining the corrected positions following the rehabilitation, it improves the posture and the body maintenance (Spasticity, scoliosis, kyphosis...).
The STABILO can be easily positioned on the seat of the Hippocampe All Wheelchair. It is possible to transfer it from on chair to another, and it is an excellent complement of therapeutic sittings. The rigidity of the seat is adjusted with the vacuum pump that pulls the air contained in the seat to create vacuum and to set the desired shape.
COMPOSITION: Seat is comprised of synthetic rubber covered of a blue anti-allergenic jersey nylon cover that obtains the adequate water and airtightness to get the vacuum. Fine granules with a high friction capacity allowing the lightness and the malleability of the seat. The seat cover in neoprene is hyper deformable, ensures the waterproofing and the desired shape memory property.
FUNCTIONING: The pump creates an air vacuum by fixing the granules while letting them move each other due to the weight and pressure effect. It offers an unlimited possibility of shapes and hardness for a particularly stable system. The granules avoid the pressures on the whole support seating surfaces. To change the shape of the seat, you just have to open the valve and let enter the air in to create a new shape, then to recreate the vacuum to obtain the hardness or the desired softness.
RIGIDITY AND DURABILITY: The seat keeps its shape and its density several months following the user behavior. In effect, if the user is agitated or spastic, the change of positions and the spasms necessitate a bi-monthly adjustment. A Temperature increase will tend to soften the seat, whereas the cold will rigidify it, this variation is always minimal and correctable with the vacuum pump.
WASHING: The coating in jersey nylon is easy care. It is advised to wash it in a shower tray or a bath at 60 degrees maximum. The use of chlorine or solvent is forbidden. Do not put it in the washing machine.
DRYING: Can be dried with paper towels or a hair driver not to exceed 60 degrees.
