INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS FOR SENIORS AND PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

WHY NUPRODX?

Because we are fully committed to developing innovative equipment to improve the lives of millions of seniors and people with disabilities world-wide. Because we utilize design and production philosophies to keep us agile and nimble to maintain the level of innovation, engineering and quality that has served us and our customers well for nearly 20 years. As you read through this brochure, you’ll learn about products developed for those who face every day challenges that most people can’t imagine, conceived and designed by Founder and President Bruce Hammer, who has C6/7 quadriplegia and has been a full-time wheelchair user for the past 30 years. He knows resourcefulness is the name of the game just to get through the day, and the company reflects that positive spirit in everything we build at our Made-In-The-USA facility in Fresno, CA.

BECAUSE ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL From the beginning, Nuprodx shower / commode and tub / slider systems have utilized modular design and construction—unique to the industry. All chairs and slider systems start with a sturdy aircraft-grade aluminum-alloy base built up with precision-machined components, which the chair legs, cushions and backrests mount to with stainless steel fasteners. But there is more to this than meets the eye: Because every system is built-to-order at our California facility, we have the ability to choose from various modular parts that goes into any chair we build, allowing us to configure your individual system to meet just about any special requirements without special custom parts. Try to find that level of personalization with a welded, mass-produced chair that arrives in the United States in the hold of a cargo ship. At Nuprodx, your chair or slider is in our capable, skilled hands until they leave for the trip to you. Nuprodx: Hand-built with precision and pride.

BECAUSE WE DESIGN PRODUCTS FOR CHILDREN TO LARGER ADULTS We come in all different shapes, so do our homes. And we go about everyday living differently too, and it’s exactly why the Nuprodx modular design will never be compromised. It’s the only compact system that fits in more spaces­—where you live now, where you might live next year and that is easily adaptable to skeletal, muscular and neurological conditions unique to you. Do you have long legs and a narrow torso? A wide torso and short legs? Our modular construction, with various-sized frame rails, “grow corners” and exclusive back-post adapters, gives us the ability to provide seating solutions for small children to adults—and even larger adults—and is just one example of our ability to configure a chair especially for you.

Perhaps the biggest advantage in designing and building our chairs in the USA is our ability to fabricate solutions for challenging situations. As an example, with the adaptation of existing parts and minimal fabrication, we can devise simple, reasonably-priced solutions, such as leg guides that adapt to the footrest mount. We also build custom, computer-designed cushions with multiple padding options. The end takeaway is that Nuprodx will always have a solution to the most subjective of special requests: Custom angle thigh rests, custom angle, height and fore / aft placement backrests and higher-than-standard seat heights are among the many things we can make available to you. And if something truly unique is needed, we can design and make it. It’s the beauty of configure to order!

BECAUSE WE ARE A LEADER IN PEDIATRIC SYSTEMS Nuprodx believes everyone deserves to live life with as much comfort and dignity as possible—especially children. Utilizing our modular design and construction, we developed our exclusive Pediatric “grow” system so our existing shower / commode chairs and tub / slider systems can “grow” with a child. You will never again need to buy a new shower chair or tub slider system due to the physical growth that comes in the teen years.

With the Pediatric “grow” system, buy any non-folding Nuprodx chair—stationary, rolling, or tub / slider system, size it for your child and later adapt it to fit as they grow–all the way to adulthood. And because not everyone grows at the same rate, there is built-in adjustability for seat width and depth. When combined with our adjustable brackets and various-sized cushions (for the big steps), you can enlarge the chair only where needed as the user grows, saving literally $1,000s of dollars as compared to buying a whole new system.


STATIONARY SHOWER & COMMODE CHAIRS The MULTICHAIR 3000 Series “The MULTICHAIR has changed my life. …. Thank you, thank you and thank you to Nuprodx!” ‑ Melanie Born, San Francisco, California

The 3000 series is intended for users who have good mobility and developed transfer skills and those who have the assistance of a caregiver. Based on our modular seat base, they feature Nuprodx’s unique clamping system to hold the chair legs firmly in place, for the rigidity and solid feel you would expect to find in a heavier, non-portable welded chair. Even so, they can be quickly and easily packed down for travel in the available luggage cases. All models feature self-skinning cushions with a 1/2” waterfallstyle foam ring around the commode opening and slot to help protect the ischial and coccyx areas, reducing the risk of pressure sores. Padded cantilever locking armrests provide comfort and leverage for both transfers and pressure relief. Visit nuprodx.com for more detailed information on all models.

THINGS TO KNOW • Underseat height adjusts from 13.5” to 21” to fit over the highest toilets required by the ADA. Tilt models are 15” - 21”. • Cantilever fold-back locking armrests are easily unlocked by pushing back on the arm, then up; no fine-motor skills required. • Pediatric seating options, with Nuprodx’s exclusive “grow” feature, are available on all models for when your little ones grow up to become teens and adults.

www.nuprodx.com

• All Nuprodx chairs passed the ANSI / BIFMA X5.1 structural test, with up to 300 lbs. (400 lbs. on 20” x 20” seat frames) dropped on the chair with no structural breakage or loss of serviceability. • Strength and durability are confirmed with the passing of Australian / New Zealand AS/NZS 3973:2009 test standards for weight bearing, corrosion, resistance to water absorption and no sharp edges, among others.


MULTICHAIR 3000 has the important specifications you need: Lightweight, durability and is a straightforward, highly functional shower / commode chair that can go nearly anywhere.

MULTICHAIR 3200 features a 20” x 20” seat and is rated at 400 lbs.

MULTICHAIR 3000Tilt features a hand-crank center-of-mass Tilt-inSpace system for easy tilt angle adjustment with a small footprint. MULTICHAIR 3000Tx provides the ultimate in portability: It packs down into the standard 18” x 9.5” x 9.5” bag and includes the handy transfer bench that rests on the top edge of the tub wall for easier transfers.

MULTICHAIR 3200Tilt features the same superb tilt mechanism as the 3000Tilt with all the benefits, plus a larger seat and 400 lb. weight capacity. Like the 3000Tilt, the headrest comes as standard equipment.


ROLL-IN SHOWER / COMMODE CHAIRS The MULTICHAIR 4000 Series “I am a mechanical engineer with more than 30 years of experience...What a smart and good design! Thank you very much for such a good present for disabled individuals.” - Vladimir Mostovskiy, C-7 Quadriplegic, Woodland Hills, CA

The wheeled 4000 series designed-in versatility allows them to cover a wide variety of user shapes, sizes and environments. Both caregiver and user-propel models enable easy transfers to help you do your toileting and showering routines with greater ease and confidence. Their small footprint makes them very maneuverable and allows them to fit into small places other shower chairs can’t­—making them a first choice for anyone with less-than-expansive living quarters. And with their modular construction, if you find your physical needs or living situation changes, your 4000 series chair can be easily converted between a self-propel or caregiver-propel model. Try that with the competition! Log on to www.nuprodx.com for additional information.

THINGS TO KNOW • User-propelled big-wheel models are available with 20”, 22”, or 24” wheels. 20” (w/ 19” handrims) are the most popular, while larger-diameter wheels increase leverage and pushing power. • Our padded seat cushions feature 1/2”-inch waterfall-style foam ring around the commode opening / slot to protect the ischial and coccyx areas to help reduce the risk of pressure sores. • Two position swing-away removable padded push handles.

www.nuprodx.com

• Pediatric “grow” option allows progressive sizing from child to adult so you only purchase and update one chair over a lifetime. • The geared rack & pinion tilt system is a durable assembly that will function worry-free for many years, unlike pneumatic struts, which can leak over time and need replacement. • Available variable-sized adult seating systems with independent width and depth configurations give you the best fit.


MULTICHAIR 4000 for those who have caregiver assistance. The floor -toseat-frame height can be adjusted from 18.5” to 22.5” for commode bowl clearance and the floor-to-seat-cushion height adjusted from 21.5” to 25.5” to match mattress height for easier lateral transfers.

MULTICHAIR 4000Tx is ideal for frequent travelers. The wheeled travel case complies with FAA requirements for carry-on luggage.

MULTICHAIR Rx series with frontmounted wheels is the narrowest selfpropelled chair for narrow doorways and also provides back clearance for larger toilet tanks. 4220Rx shown. MULTICHAIR 4000Tilt features the Nuprodx Tilt-in-Space system to centralize the users center-of-gravity throughout the tilt process for smooth, light operation. The crank handle mounts on either side.

MULTICHAIR 4024 offers our largest-diameter wheels in the selfpropel series. In addition to facilitating independence, the large wheels also ease getting over small thresholds in the home.


TUB / SLIDER SYSTEMS The MULTICHAIR 5000 / 6000 Series “Nuprodx provides a $4,000 solution to a $20,000 problem.” - Cara Colgin-Smith, Southwestern Medical Reps

Re-modeling is a big expense, and simply unnecessary. With a Nuprodx tub / slider system you get a commode chair, tub access slider system, and with 6000 series models, an inhome mobility chair, for $1,000s less and none of the heartache of tearing apart a home for several weeks. The reasons to choose a Nuprodx system are many, but Number One is bath safety. Our tub / slider systems let you accomplish toilet and shower activities with a single bed-side lateral transfer, away from the dangerous bathroom environment, and with most transfers made by a single caregiver. Nuprodx offers a full selection of slider systems for every need, whether it’s a senior looking for an easier, safer way into the tub, or for a person with a high-level disability requiring a full-feature tilt-in-space. www.nuprodx.com.

THINGS TO KNOW • Only Nuprodx’s V-shaped track and self-aligning Delrin® wheels roll smoothly when the roll-in and tub bases are not perfectly aligned. We’ve put smiles on caregivers’ faces for years! • Only Nuprodx’s offset tub base legs swivel, allowing a six-inch range of width adjustment, so you can get the perfect fit—with more flexibility—that you can’t get with legs welded in place. • All sliders are available with the Pediatric “grow” system.

www.nuprodx.com

• Available locking connector bridges come in one-inch increments from 9” to 23” to accommodate nearly any size bathroom. • 5” diameter casters with total-lock brakes prevent rolling or swiveling for a stable base for transferring (6” casters on 6200 series). • Compact Nuprodx tub / sliders work especially well in small confines where others simply don’t fit. Toileting and showering from one bed-side lateral transfer and a slide across the bridge do it all!


MULTICHAIR 5100Tx removes the risk of entering and exiting the tub from the bath safety equation, making it ideal for seniors who are a little less sure on their feet. Light and compact, it’s ready to travel with its standard carrying case.

MULTICHAIR 6000Tilt Pediatric features the Nuprodx “grow” system that keeps the same chair with the user all the way to adulthood, saving $1,000s.

MULTICHAIR 6200 boasts a large 20” x 20” seat frame and 400 lb. weight capacity. Locking cantilever arms swing up to ease transfers. MULTICHAIR 6000Tilt features a durable, low-effort center-of-mass tilt-in-space system in an amazingly small footprint other old-school systems can’t match. Standard headrest and calfrest provide support.

MULTICHAIR 6000Tx takes to the road with its standard carrying case. Encompassing all the same features as the 6000 model except the cloth sling-back backrest, it is a proven road warrior for travel!
