Our Philosophy - 24 Hour Postural Care JCM believe that a comprehensive 24 hour postural management programme is central to safeguarding a child’s skeletal development. Clients who do not have the ability to change their position and weight bearing independently need a 24 hour postural care programme. JCM have developed seating systems that can be used on a variety of mobile bases to ensure that the user is correctly positioned at all times. JCM also offer an extensive range of complementary therapy products and a sleep system to provide the complete solution. Everyone has their won unique postural presentation, posture is never static; we believe equipment should reflect our individual ways of living.

Green Policy The modular design of our products offers easy disassembly for recycling. If you would like assistance with recycling old JCM products please contact us. We promote lean manufacturing and have a strict in-house recycling policy for all of our waste materials.

Choices Driving efficiency and innovation in specialist equipment provision

jcmseating.co.uk


What is Choices? JCM recognise that every purchasing authority and clinical provider has differing objectives and specific regional issues in their quest to achieve their set healthcare outcomes for their client base. Choices is a set of JCM supply options that can be tailor-made for NHS, Community, Education and Healthcare focused charities that are looking to get the best possible balance between high quality service provision and outstanding value for money. Whether it’s by a direct purchase, refurbishment or re-issuing equipment. The JCM tailor-made approach is to work with each customer group to establish an individual set of solutions that meet their local and regional needs. For example – you can buy the equipment, have a service package included in the price upfront and build in refurbishment and re-issue solutions. What sets JCM apart is our “solutions” led approach which leaves all possibilities available – without being too prescriptive and therefore restrictive. There are a number of key points to consider when evaluating your equipment provider, so why choose JCM?

Why choose JCM? • Our Clinics – an efficient use of resources for multiple assessments, reviews and set-ups. • Assessment, set-up and reviews of all equipment - all part of the JCM service without additional cost. • Purchase plans based on your own anticipated volumes – improves cost effectiveness. • Refurbishment purchase options; refurbished / re-issued – complete with fully documented service history.

• Full and comprehensive refurbishments include; a full service, replacement of covers, checking of all working parts, and specification of any additional parts identified at assessment to aid child development. • Service packages – tailored by price and volume. • Training programmes – clinical and technical workshops hosted free of charge and all CPD accredited. • JCM Tailor-Made - please turn overleaf to find out more!

• Regular review of store held inventory for re-issue – to identify potential client ‘matches’. • Localised Refurbishment – JCM service engineers can fully service and refurbish equipment locally, this avoids multiple carriage charges and saves you valuable time.

What is JCM Tailor-made? • Just for you solutions for everyday living: comfort and function hand in hand with posture 24/7 • Precision in posture – solutions as individual as you are • Quality & Innovation – JCM expertise • Contemporary healthcare practice – sharing knowledge together we achieve

JCM expertise We believe that conducting a thorough assessment is vital in prescribing the optimal posture management equipment. We spend time gathering data from the therapists we work with experienced in seating and mobility assessments, consider experts in their field we partner, what constitutes best practices in this area for our product specialists, and how the skills for best practices are acquired and maintained.

The JCM way: Best Practice Keys Experience – we use the experience of our customer who are the real experts. We have a competency and proficiency framework in our team - those with experience draw on their knowledge to use relevant information to drive our problem solving and develop others. Our belief is that all best practice is a balance between research and clinical judgment. Reflecting and learning from experience helps one to remember, reason, and problem-solve. This drives innovation. With this sharing of experience, techniques improve. Not only do the techniques improve, but the ability to draw information and to understand what “feels right” when conducting the assessment also improves and becomes easily identifiable.

The JCM process: • The assessment is done with the therapists we work with. • Potential trial. It is important to be able to trial recommended equipment sometimes or simulate positioning as much as possible. Although not all sizes, configurations, and equipment are possible for trial, the simulation/trial of equipment that is available provides important information to help guide the final decision. • Applying biomechanical anatomical knowledge together. Understanding biomechanics and movement can help to configure a seating system for the optimum outcome. • Environmental assessment. Assessment in situ or together in clinic with trial of equipment and feedback from the client and/or caregiver can help to inform suitability of recommended equipment, such as seat to floor height relative to table heights, indoors outdoors options, if an environmental assessment cannot be completed. • Collaboration. It is important to do an assessment that allows the client to express their own perspective if possible.

10

jcmseating.co.uk


• Great posture management includes a balance of client values and needs, collaborative clinical expertise and synergy in product specialist knowledge. • Knowledge and understanding of the technology available, both “old” and “new’’ is invaluable in assisting clinical reasoning. • Set up and Review: Follow-up client satisfaction is everything. We believe in a partnership with our customers, it is important to partner with the consumer as the client brings the perspective of his own experience, skills, and knowledge of needs. Evidence-based practice supports a client-centred approach.

Don’t just take our word for it… “Since starting our seating clinics in April 2012 we have been supported continuously throughout by JCM Seating Solutions. JCM initially helped us to look at our refurbished stock and give us ideas in how we could invest and improve this. We then moved forwards with our seating clinics held on a 6 weekly basis. Our clinics are a whole team effort of therapists, the Red Cross and manufacturers who jointly promote provision of postural seating. Wherever possible, this is from high quality refurbished stock. The group work as a team welcoming children into the clinic environment and as such the child receives a high level of skill and expertise related to their own specific unique postural needs. We now have a working solution set up of consignment stock which ensures we have some new seating readily available for the younger children who attend the clinics to enable to us to meet their requirements in the timeliest way. JCM have been fully committed to helping us work through any difficulties we have come across and we have a successful system working for the children of Nottinghamshire”.

Workshop and Training Packages at JCM JCM workshops provide an opportunity to enhance the clinical reasoning skills for determining the optimal seating and positioning equipment. The workshops apply evidence-based knowledge to seating and postural equipment. Participants also have the opportunity to reflect on their own experience and to develop the practical skills to complete a comprehensive and holistic assessment and informed equipment choices. In addition, those taking part can also gain practical knowledge with seating and positioning with a hands on approach to develop skills. Workshops may be tailored for parent and carer groups, nursery and school staff.

Posture Management & Control Where does good posture start? Postural management aims to address general clinical goals by providing optimum comfort, function and control.

16

jcmseating.co.uk

• Comfort • Function • Control • Stability


Postural management and JCM At JCM we work on the premise that human posture can be defined as the position of one or more body segments in relation to one another and their orientation in space. The head, trunk, pelvis, lower limbs and feet are known as body ‘segments’, while the spinal joints, hips, knees, ankles and shoulder joints are considered the body ‘linkages’. This means all have to be thought about and accommodated, and we know that when considering posture it should be seen as an active and dynamic process which underpins movement and function, as well as our health and well being. Posture and movement are inextricably linked, they work together! Our posture at any one time is a temporary rested movement, which is in a constant state of change. It is never static and our equipment is designed to respond to these ever changing snapshots of posture.

Posture is seen as a relationship between:

• Comfort and well being • Movement and stability • Function and occupation Equipment needs to achieve a balance with all these factors whilst also considering its environment and practical image of the equipment in everyday situations. By considering as many factors as possible we are able to work towards our goal of true 24 hour postural care. The JCM range reflects an understanding of the way that humans learn Postural control through achieving normal developmental milestones, including the maturing of postural reactions , the integration of primitive reflexes , as well as maintaining normal muscle postural tone. This can be seen reflected through the range from early interventions tools, through to equipment for teens in transition, all the way to postural management in adult life.

What does 24 hour postural management equipment need to do? Physical Goals: This can be facilitation, correction or maintaining the posture. For example, optimum positioning enables the pelvis, trunk and shoulder girdle to remain stable so that the hands are free to function.

Social Inclusion: When development is delayed, independent sitting, standing or walking may not be achievable. Postural equipment becomes a vitally important tool socially - as most people interact in different positions in different environments and different times.

Cognitive and Behavioural Goals: Good posture can help develop many skills, for example perception: an upright posture helps develop three dimensional depth and distance awareness, as well as general communication and levels of concentration.

Functional and Environmental Goals: Any individual of any age with any illness or disability may benefit from some type of postural management support to improve their quality of life, and interact with their wider environment, family, friends and carers in a positive way.

Posture Management and Control

17


How do we do this? Where does good posture start? Postural management equipment aims to address general clinical goals by providing optimum:

Sacroiliac joints

Front Hip Bone (ASIS) Pubic Symphysis

Iliac bone

Back Hip Bone (PSIS) Sacrum ASIS: anterior superior iliac spine

Coccyx

PSIS: posterior superior iliac spine

Ischial tuberosity

Symphysis pubis

Pelvic and hip stability Good posture begins with the pelvis - the most important feature of any postural management equipment or mobility system is its ability to align or accommodate a range of pelvic positions. This gives the best possible base of support.

Why? A focus on pelvic control maintains an upright stable pelvis in its neutral position. In this position the spine, shoulder girdle, trunk, head and neck can function in their most stable position. Our spines respond to the correct pelvic angle which means that the spine too can be active in its natural upright curves. Pelvic stability – good positioning at the hips means our limbs are encouraged to lie in a mid-range position which can minimise abnormal tone. This can help prevent further complications such as muscle contracture or hip pain and subluxation which can require surgical intervention. Options in sacral positioning - optimal positioning at the sacrum should be used to accommodate specific positions - we are all different. For example this maybe used to minimise posterior tilt and allow the extensor spasm to occur without the user’s pelvis sliding out of alignment, or accommodate spinal rotation by rotating and contouring with the hips and spine.

18

jcmseating.co.uk

A Healthy Spine

A spine with a sideways curvature (scoliosis)


Trunk and head alignment, upper limb The aim is for stability and symmetry. When we have a good level of stability at the trunk and head this contributes to the stability of the pelvis and facilitates arm and hand function, concentration and social interaction. Good trunk control helps retraction of the shoulder girdle into the neutral position which means that the upper limb is able to get on with tasks and fine motor activities can be facilitated allowing activities such as meals, washing and dressing, writing, computer work, hobbies and playing games. Daily activities are more easily performed and engaged in a context with family, carers, teachers and peers more readily.

Lower limb, legs and feet: A focus on the lower limb adds to a more stable symmetrical and functional position. For example tightness in the hamstrings and unsupported feet can contribute to instability of the pelvis, and therefore the alignment of the trunk and head, impacting overall posture. Scissoring or wind sweeping can be accommodated as well as real or apparent leg length discrepancies. The ability to accommodate wind sweeping and spinal rotation means that the user can be fully supported while the trunk and head face forward, improving opportunities for social interaction.

Dynamix as a clinical tool and outcome measure This dynamix system (Internationally patented) is ideal for a user with a strong extensor spasm and a varying muscle tone. The system allows the extensor spasm to occur in a totally controlled fashion, eliminating any unwanted feed back or stimulation from uncontrolled movement of the seating system. The system facilitates smooth movement and return in the same way in which the body moves naturally: as the air pressure mechanism ensures that any movement in the back is smooth and controlled. By using a variable pressure piston you are able to manipulate two factors: firstly you must set the strength of the resistance of the back, secondly the speed of its return to its original position – thus you have two clinical variables which are able to be manipulated and measured directly as clinical outcome measures in the context of evidence based practice, and used as part of a therapeutic tool kit in 24 hour postural management plans.

Summary: • Emphasis on 24 hour postural care • Interventions which promote optimal positioning, social inclusion and occupational performance • Promoting independence, and improving quality of life • Proactive rather than reactive approach • Supporting outcome measuring and evidence based practice

Triton Dynamix ™

®

International Patent

Superior Dynamics The unique dynamic back is easily adjusted to control the level of resistance the user feels as they extend in the chair. This mechanism is not a spring action, as commonly used on dynamic chairs, but is air pressure controlled and the rebound is also adjustable so the back moves in harmony with the user rather than pushing them forward as they relax. These features, unique to TritonTM, give the chair a controlled, gentle movement with the flexibility to adjust the system as the user grows or presents differently.

The dynamic mechanism works independently to the chair’s reclining back. A locking function can be simply engaged for periods of feeding, transferring and transportation.

• Air Pressure Controlled • Adjustable • Works in harmony with the user

Triton Dynamix ™

International Patent

Controlled Pelvic Positioning

Complementary Ergonomics

In conjunction with the hip supports and superior foams on the cushion, the wide range of adjustment in the sacral pad allows you to position the pelvis accordingly. As well as accommodating adjustment for anterior and posterior positioning, the sacral pad can be adjusted to accommodate rotation. This can be used to support a fixed position or assist with de-rotating the pelvis, with cushion options it assists obliquity, likewise options are available for more complete pressure care situations assessed on an individual bases.

In relation to the seat reclining tilt in space and dynamic back functions the sacral pad works independently. This helps maintain a good position at the pelvis as the backrest moves.

Dynamic Footplate Four independent springs allow the footplate to move in any direction. This feature improves users sensory experience and for heavy users creates a more robust footprint providing longevity in the product. Whilst maintaining a full range of movement and adjustment through plantar/dorsi flexion.

47


What is the aurora standing frame? Aurora is a 3 in 1 standing frame, which can accommodate full range from supine, through to upright and prone. Offering a full selection of options and accessories to support functionality and contemporary therapy, plus individual standing needs. All of this can be achieved with one tool for adjustment, supporting a user friendly approach to postural management.

We can use the Aurora for children from an early age to support early intervention through to adulthood, accommodating a weight of 80kg. With a suite of head, trunk, leg and foot options we can create the perfect postural support for the individual, facilitating true modularity and precision in posture.

• Encourages bone and muscle development • Improves circulation, respiration and digestive functioning • Facilitates increased opportunity for function, social interaction, social skills, communication and education

48

jcmseating.co.uk


Why use the Aurora? In the UK assisted standing programs are routinely employed as part of the postural management approach for children through to adults who are unable to independently maintain well aligned standing or who have limited mobility in the upright position. A standing program refers to the use of adaptive equipment, for example, a standing frame that provides external, adjustable support to facilitate an upright, prone or supine position. The aim of these standing programs is to prevent or minimise motor symptoms, to encourage proper alignment, and to improve bone growth and bone mineral density through mechanical loading of the lower limbs and spine, (Macias-Merlo et al 2013*). The evidence base is well established, thus so the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE guidelines) recommends the use of standing frames in therapy intervention as part of the 24 hour postural management picture.

Standing

49


Prone positioning We can use the Aurora with the range of anterior supports to achieve an active and dynamic position when in prone. Research demonstrates that when positioned either in an upright close to neutral position or tilted moderately in to a prone angle we can maximise the benefits to spinal extension, create benefits for increasing bone density and growth, as well as providing an optimal position to allow a stretch of

50

jcmseating.co.uk

the muscle mass, and play a part in preventing contractures. Functional implications and participation is also maximised, allowing interaction in multiple environments, home, classroom, and otherwise, facilitating occupation in the prone position.


Supine position We can use the Aurora with the range of posterior supports to allow the supine positions, useful for low tone, where poor head or trunk control is a problem, encouraging the learning of a more stable standing position, encouraging a more upright position as tolerance allows and improves.

Getting a person in to the Aurora Ordinarily the most protective stance for the carer and safest most comfortable way to transfer the user from a wheelchair in to Aurora would be to position the stander in a supine position/horizontal. With the assistance of the hoist and sling specific for the person. It may be the person is able to weight bare in some capacity, in which case we can guide the feet to the foot plates and assist the standing position with the assistance of the sit to stand hoist, once the person is stable and feeling secure, the standing frame can be moved in to the appropriate position.

Harnesses Stayflex™ Chest Support The Stayflex™ Chest Support gives users needing trunk control, firm support without sacrificing comfortable shoulder movement. The patented “dual-zone” elastic construction virtually eliminates shifting upwards at the neckline as the user leans forward reducing the risk of strangulation. Made of carefully selected materials that combine to provide the optimal balance between stretch and resistance, the Stayflex is the best choice for long-term stability and performance. Features: • Heavy-duty knit nylon and foamed rubber padding for strong elastic support • Quick-release swivel buckles on the lower straps for easy removal • Superior materials and sewing construction for long life As always, a pelvic support should be worn with an anterior support product.

PivotFit™ Shoulder Harness Distributing pressure across a 25% greater surface area than a traditional H-style harness, the PivotFit™ Shoulder Harness has a body-contouring shape for optimal support and a comfortable fit. Curved Laminartm pads follow the contours of the shoulders and ribcage, with a low-placed sternum strap to reduce the risk of strangulation while providing easy adjustability. The carefully-engineered new swivel buckle is twice as strong as competitive models and allows for precise pad placement for an individualized fit. Available in a non-stretch version for more control, and a dynamic version which allows controlled movement to reduce spastic tone. Features: • Sleek sewing construction is easy to clean • Elimination of lower D-ring prevents “hot spots” at the ribcage • High-strength swivel buckle equalizes tension without causing “bunching-up” • Easy-to-tighten sternum strap accommodates clothing changes and ensures a snug fit As always, a pelvic support should be worn with any anterior support product.

Hip Belts Measurements apply to both 2 point and 4-point centre pull hip belts. To determine the belt size required, the recommended method for measuring hip width is from trochanter to trochanter (with the user seated). If this is not possible, measure from ASIS to ASIS and add a couple of inches. If the hip width falls between sizes on the chart, consider future factors such as growth, weight changes and clothing. The correct belt size for the user should include padding, covering all of the users bony prominences.

Moonlite Sleep system

• Cot & adult sizes • Can be fitted to a profile bed if required

• Can be used for supine, prone and side lying

24-hour postural care 90

jcmseating.co.uk


A fresh approach to sleep system design, Moonlite is flexible and easy to use whilst still providing uncompromised postural support. Moonlite sleep system offers continuing support complimenting the day time seating systems from JCM. The system has a light, easy to clean plastic sub frame that can be flexed to profile the shape you require, supporting your client from head to toe. As a result the system can function on its own or with any profile bed. The supports easily slide and lock onto the frame providing side support, maintaining the user in a comfortable midline position. These supports are angle adjustable and can be laid flat to facilitate moving and handling the client in and out of bed, without having to remove all of the brackets.

The flexibility of JCM’s sleep system means you can use either the knee abduction or leg support systems on their own or in combination with Moonlite. Function The flexibility of JCM’s sleep system means you can use either the knee abduction or leg support systems on their own or in combination with Moonlite Sleep System. This approach gives a variety of options and solutions from one system and for progressive alterations to be made to the individual’s sleeping position – taking into account their changing needs throughout life.

Supine or Side Lying Supine or side lying can be accommodated through a modular and flexible range of components that can be utilised independently or in conjunction with Moonlite. This provides a solution-led approach to comfortable and posturally supportive sleeping. The knee cup system helps maintain alignment of the legs in a supine lying position – providing midline symmetry and preventing windsweeping through secure support of the knees. The knee cup system can be finely adjusted to ensure the correct degree of abduction or adduction. If side

92

jcmseating.co.uk

lying is indicated, a leg support and side lying table helps position and abduct the legs. In side lying, the top leg is supported which helps maintain the position of the pelvis and in conjunction with the Moonlite trunk support brackets holds the body in a midline position; discouraging rotation in the hips and trunk. Both supine and side lying systems help solve complex sleep issues with minimum fuss and combined with Moonlite provide a range of modular and adaptable solutions.


Supports There are a vast range of support options to choose from.

Soft knee cups Helps maintain alignment of the legs in a supine lying position.

Support cushion A range of cushions complete the system and offer a soft and comfortable finish.

Handling Folding postural support brackets.

Fleece lined straps Works in conjunction with the soft knee cups to help maintain the position of the legs.

Side lying table Helps position and abduct the legs.

Handling & Transportation Brackets ensure secure postural support when fixed in position but can be easily re-positioned or folded flat to allow personal care to take place during the night, without having to dismantle the system. The lightweight system can be folded down for transportation with the brackets still in place, alleviating the problem of having to reset the system every time it is moved. The system can also be supplied with a travel bag.

Easy Transportation Rolls up neatly into a bag.

Pressure Care tra function, comfort and innovation in pressure care. Tailor made for active life: solutions as individual as our customers. As it exists now — most modular seating systems globally are reactive solutions system. That is, the systems wait for somebody to develop pressure issues before improvements in the cushioning have to be added for reactive action. For the most part, the system was not designed to help prevent the onset of pressure care issues. Our Xtra range of products used with Triton™ demonstrate our proactive approach and are designed around, and continually provide proactive pressure care with a full spectrum of options to cover those considered low, medium and high risk. Experts agree that the goal of eradicating needless pressure ulcers in all healthcare environments can be achieved through successful prevention strategies and comprehensive clinical guidelines.

Why be so proactive? Because we know our customer’s needs... As part of our design process at JCM we consider, stay alert to and utilise guidance from expert opinion, we know from the most recent guidelines being proactive really is a smart move, as most of our clients have a continuous low level of need at all times … why take the risk? We can see this outlined By NICE: Pressure ulcers: prevention and management NICE guidelines [CG179] Published date: April 2014 (Due for review in 2018).

Pressure care risk factors for neonates, infants, children and young people: • Being admitted to secondary care or tertiary care or receiving NHS care in other settings (such as primary and community care) • If they have a risk factor, for example: significantly limited mobility • Loss of sensation • A previous or current pressure ulcer • Nutritional deficiency • The inability to reposition themselves • Significant cognitive impairment. • Poor posture and nutritional issues

“we’re moving the dial from reactive to proactive and predictive pressure care solutions”.


At JCM we understand that pressure ulcers are caused when an area of skin and the tissues below are damaged as a result of being placed under pressure sufficient to impair its blood supply. Typically they occur in a person confined to bed or a chair. Indeed the use of seating not specifically designed to provide pressure relief, can cause pressure ulcers. As pressure ulcers can arise in a number of ways, interventions for prevention and treatment need to be applicable across a wide range of settings including community and secondary care.

Prevention and proactivity Most importantly Pressure ulcers are often preventable and their prevention is included in domain 5 of the Department of Health’s NHS outcomes framework. The current guideline rationalises the approaches used for the prevention and management of pressure ulcers. Its implementation will ensure practice is based on the best available evidence. It covers prevention and treatment and applies to all people in NHS care and in care funded by the NHS.

Specialised support A) Slow release foam seat - fitted as standard to all JCM products. Our slow release foam seat reduces pressure substantially. This makes a real difference for the user in terms of comfort, improved posture and enhanced weight distribution over long periods. The cushion moulds itself to the contours of the user and helps to spread the body weight more evenly across a greater surface area. This function is essential to avoid localised pressure on the critical parts of the body subjected to compression and possible tissue damage. The seat comprises of two distinct layers which carry out different but equally important functions. The upper layer is a polymer which is both temperature sensitive and energy absorbing, it responds to body heat and forms to the body’s shape. The supporting layer improves support and flexibility for the upper layer.

• All foams meet Schedule 1 part 1 of The Furniture and Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations 1988. • All Foams are tested for resilience using BS3379 • Clinical assessments were conducted by Tissue Viability Consultancy Services Ltd.

D) STABILO stabilising vacuum cushions - added options designed for pressure relief, stability, skin protection and positioning. • From correct sitting prophylactics, through to rehabilitation, to help in care. • Thanks to the adaptability of individual cushions the shape of user’s body may be used to improve sitting or lying comfort. By proper shape modelling, the cushions ensure proper support for hips and spine. • The innovative structure of the cushions allows for preserving shape with various degrees of hardness. These cushions may be modelled like plasticine and, if necessary, the shape can be preserved in the form of a hard shell. The construction, filling and stretchiness of the STABILO material allows the change of shape through the movement of special granules rather then it’s bending. As a result the pressure is even throughout. • Easy to use function of pressure valve and air pump. • Allows the carer or therapist the ability to adjust the shape to gain the maximum support required. • Easy to re-shape helping re-issue

The STABILO range can be used in the Sunbeam, Neptune and Triton™ series of JCM products.

Case Study Triton™ 2 with Xtra Pressure Care - STABILO Sebastian is a 14 year who has Cerebral Palsy. Sebastian communicates non verbally using a switch and transfers using a hoist. • He uses a third party head support and an added chin support. The Triton™ has inner and outer thigh guides, a 4 point hip belt to maintain his pelvic position and to prevent him sliding forward, reducing the risk of sheer pressure forces occurring. After assessment we know he is at risk of sliding due to the amount of posterior pelvic tilt he sits in.

Clinical Assessment Upon assessment overall Sebastian’s pelvis is level, there is posterior pelvic tilt, Kyphosis affecting the neck and head position. Additionally there is coinciding shoulder protraction and external rotation in the hips. Critically these are fixed postures.

Approach and Goals The main goal of Sebastian’s seating is to increase comfort while offering supportive seating. Upon assessment Sebastian’s head flexes backwards to enable him to see. The position of the pelvis can affect the spine and in the case of Sebastian, the posterior pelvic tilt has caused the spine to curve into a marked kyphosis. There is no longer a lumbar curve. Sebastian’s current equipment: • Triton™ 2 on TX Base • Anterior support head rest • 4 point hip belt • Dynamic harness • A lumbar wedge from the JAY range had been inserted behind the standard cushion to offer additional support

• Initially the standard backrest was prescribed. This was complimented with a lumbar wedge from the JAY backrest range, used behind the cushion. Although this worked initially, Sebastian’s posture was not fully supported. Assessment highlighted that a crash tested wheelchair with seating system and headrest were required. It was suggested that a custom mould would be the only product to offer an individual shape, however Sebastian is still growing.

Outcome We prescribed STABILO - a stabilising cushion with many applications. The role here is to offer a good seating position. The cushion is made from a stretchy neoprene cover filled with light granules. The cushion can be moulded to the shape of the body, offering an even distribution of pressure across the surface of the cushion. The shape is maintained by sucking the air out using a suction pump. Sebastian is now comfortably seated in a way that enables every day function and occupational engagement with the successful addition of the Triton™ Xtra range – STABILO.

E) JAY – Pressure Relief Cushions Since 1983 our JAY design engineers at our parent company Sunrise Medical have produced superior clinical positioning seating. They have combined science and innovative material technology to develop a market leading range of cushions we are proud to integrate into JCM. As Industry pioneers, we continually work with top researchers and clinicians worldwide to develop the most advanced seating products, designed and tested to exceed industry standards. The JAY philosophy is based on creating a stable posture to maximize function but also provide high skin protection and increased comfort to meet a broader range of clinical and technical needs. Here are your choices when building the right cushion for your clients needs:

Option 1: Pelvic well design and fluid pad options The size and shape of the JAY Balance’s well or Pelvic Loading Area is based on anthropometric measurements of pelvic bone width to ensure maximum stability. Rear and steeper front well walls have been designed to prevent fluid migration and keep the fluid where it is needed. Choose between the JAY Flow Fluid™ or ROHO Dry Flotation™ airs insert. Innovative Fluid options which stop ‘bottoming out ‘ from happening, and market leading ROHO options for a world class approach in positioning and pressure care.

Option 2: Field-adjustable positioning

Option 3: Innovative dual cover system; 3

components

types of outer covers to choose from

With the optional positioning components the pelvis and thighs can be properly positioned for many clinical applications. The JAY Balance cushion encourages orthopaedic alignment, increases sitting tolerance and accommodates changing user needs without ignoring the pressure care requirements or taking away the need to adapt and change to changing needs of the user.

A proactive sandwich: The inner cover is made of two way stretch dartex fabric, is water resistant and easy to clean, this protects the inner part of the cushion. On the outside/ skin contact area we are protected by Aquaguard zipper and anti-wicking thread technology to ensure that the base stays clean and dry, and then can make the choice between three cover options; microclimatic, stretch, and incontinence (water proof ).

Critically - Each cover allows positioning inserts to be added without increasing surface tension. All outer covers are machine washable at 60°C and quick to dry – we understand our parent’s needs as well as our users! Pressure Care

Proximat® - by clinicians for clinicians Proximat® – a practitioner developed, evidence based solution which provides increased accuracy and greater flexibility of use for the measurement of hip range movement in children with cerebral palsy. Programmes and interventions for children with cerebral palsy aim to reduce deformity, improve comfort and enhance functional skills. To monitor the effectiveness of these interventions, accurate measurements are needed using simple tools in daily clinical practice. Although using x-rays is the gold standard, it is important to measure hip range movement in between these assessments. Traditionally, these inter-x-ray assessments have been performed using a goniometer, but this handheld device can be difficult to use and provide inaccurate measurements. It was during a particularly awkward assessment that Patsy Pott, a physiotherapist working within Manchester PCT, had the idea for Proximat®. Soon afterwards the idea progressed to a protractor drawn on to a piece of vinyl and colleague, Andrea Selley brought the skills to conduct a reliability study within the local community. The study provided evidence that Proximat®, as well as being easier and simpler in use than a goniometer, proved to be a reliable tool for measuring range of movement.

Through analysis of test/retest (testing on separate days) results showed that error with Proximat was only 3° to 12°. This compares very favourably with previously published results for goniometry of error of 15° to 28°. Proximat® as a product is the result of an NHSindustry collaboration, facilitated by TrusTECH® (NHS Innovations North West) The Proximat® is child friendly, lightweight and versatile. Intended for use in either a clinic on a mat or plinth or in the home on a carpet, portability and flexibility are built in. The mat is supplied as a kit (shown above) in a canvas bag with a pack of pens, poster, tape measure, user manual, record sheet and CD (containing electronic versions of the user manual and record sheet) For further information or to download an order form please visit our website and follow the links to our Proximat® page.

Wash & Care lnstructions Stirata AGUA Stirata is a specialist fabric with many inherent properties It is important to look after the fabric to help maintain its appearance and condition. General care: Regular vacuuming and wiping with a damp cloth to remove dust particles • Do Not Machine Wash Or Dry Clean • Do Not Use As Loose Covers • Spillages: remove quickly with an absorbent dry cloth • Minor soiling: wipe with a clean damp microfibre cloth • Water based stains: mild liquid detergent with warm water, rinse thoroughly followed by drying with an absorbent microfibre cloth. Use cold water for stains produced by bodily fluids • Other stains: use proprietary products, following the instructions on the container carefully • Hypochlorite or Alcohol based solutions: can be used in extreme circumstances (10,000ppm) • Steam cleaning: can be completed in situ • All soap residue must be rinsed out of the fabric as it will attract further stains • Always pre-test cleaners on a hidden piece of fabric to evaluate the colourfastness and texture of the fabric before proceeding with cleaning Please note that stains caused by bodily fluids should be removed immediately. As with all fabrics, stains that have been left in situ for over 24 hours will have set and will become increasingly difficult to remove.

Libra AGUA Libra is a specialist fabric with many inherent properties It is important to look after the fabric to help maintain its appearance and condition. General care: Regular vacuuming and wiping with a damp cloth to remove dust particles. • Do Not Dry Clean. • Most stains can be removed using the wipe clean method. • Spillages: remove quickly with an absorbent dry cloth. • Minor soiling: wipe with a clean damp cloth. • Water based stains: mild liquid detergent with warm water, rinse thoroughly followed by drying with an absorbent cloth. Use cold water for stains produced by bodily fluids. • Other stains: use proprietary products, following the instructions on the container carefully. • Hypochlorite or Alcohol based solutions: can be used in extreme circumstances (Half a cup of household bleach with 5 litres of water- 10,000ppm). • Steam cleaning: can be completed in situ.

108

• Machine Wash: With care at 40°C. Covers must NOT be turned inside out and the zips MUST be closed. Remove from machine as soon as washing cycle is complete. • Line Dry. • Iron: If necessary on the face side of the fabric only at medium temperature. • Always pre-test cleaners on a hidden piece of fabric to evaluate the colourfastness and texture of the fabric before proceeding with cleaning. • All soap residue must be rinsed out of the fabric as it will attract further stains. • Please note that stains caused by bodily fluids should be removed immediately. As with all fabrics, stains that have been left in situ for over 24 hours will have set and will become increasingly difficult to remove.

Cadet Vinyl/Microvelle • Do not machine wash, fully immerse or soak. • Do not dry clean • With any aspect of cleaning, it is essential that all residue is removed from the surface. Do not leave any liquids in situ. • Upholstered furniture should be vacuumed/cleaned regularly to remove dust/surface grit particles and prevent build-up of soiling. Take care not to cause abrasive damage to surface. • Most stains can be removed by wiping clean if tackled immediately. • Wipe clean with a damp microfibre cloth and water to remove dust particles and prevent build-up of soiling. • Microfibre cleaning cloths are extremely effective without soap, which is helpful as soap can clog your fabric. • Remove spillages promptly (within 15 minutes) with an absorbent dry cloth. • Water and oil based stains may be removed by using most water based household proprietary spray cleaning agents, following instructions carefully. • Do not apply solvent based cleaners or other chemicals to the fabric. • Do not use a felt tip, ball point pen or ink to mark as these can leave permanent stains. • Bodily fluids should be removed promptly (within 15 mins) with cold water and then cleaned as above. • For general soiling, use a microfibre cloth taking care to avoid abrasive damage to surface and use tepid, soapy water (pH neutral). Rinse clean with water and dry with an absorbent cloth. • For extreme soiling/infection control purposes use a 5% Sodium Chlorite (bleach) solution, Haz Tabs or Chlor Clean.
