Colours N Motion (http://www.ColoursWheelchair.com) and Med Services Europe (http://www.MedServicesEurope.com) dicuss plans for advancing Colours’; operations in Eastern Europe Corona, California and Moscow, Russia (PRWEB) January 6, 2006 — Colours N Motion, a leading US manufacturer of active, ultra-light wheelchairs and Med Services Europe discussed plans for Eastern European markets for 2006. Dr. Gene Emmer, president of Med Services Europe, said that exclusive distributors have been signed for UK, Ireland, Greece, France, Spain, Poland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Israel and Palestine. “We are truly making rapid progress. One of the most important reasons is that Colours Wheelchairs have many advantages over the competition that offer unique opportunities for distributors of disability products.” “For example in markets with developing economies, the Spazz-G has opened many doors for Colours since it is probably the most economically priced quality, ultra-lightweight wheelchairs available, said Dr. Emmer When asked about the challenges for the future, Dr Emmer said “we want to become established in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Markets such as Russia, Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Hungary, Ukraine, Turkey, Romania, Slovenia and Uzebekistan present some of the most interesting opportunities for growth and we are actively seeking partners in those markets. Unfortunately, in many countries the need for quality products for the disabled is poorly understood and under-funded. Also, finding just the right partner can be difficult as there is a shortage of people who can provide the level of service required to become a Colours Distributor.” John Box said “It has been one year since Colours selected Med Services Europe to build our European business and we have made amazing progress. Med Services has found excellent partners for us in Europe. Nevertheless, we still have some open territories and distributors interested in obtaining exclusivity for Colours Wheelchairs are encouraged to contact Med Services Europe.” About Colours: Colours is a leader in the rehabilitation industry for its design of innovative everyday, sport and pediatric wheelchairs.

Choosing The Right Pediatric Power Wheelchair – by David Silva

No Comments 25 November 2009

All children value their freedom, their ability move around in space while experiencing the many wonders of the world. This is as true for those children who can’t walk as it is for those who can. In the past, being confined to a wheelchair was just that … confining. But today, wheelchairs are technologically advanced and sophisticated enough to allow children who are unable to walk a freedom they were never previously able to experience. The right pediatric wheelchair can allow a variety of positions, including sitting, laying and standing so that the user can move around during the day while still remaining comfortable and functional.
Pediatric power wheelchairs are available in the same basic models as other power wheelchairs. There’s the rear-wheel drive, which move fast but can be difficult to maneuver in tight places; the front-wheel drive, which can make sharper turns and runs only slightly slower than the rear-wheel model; and finally, there’s the mid-wheel drive wheelchair, which has the tightest turn capability but can be unsteady in stops and starts.
However, far more important in choosing the right pediatric power wheelchair for your child is how well it serves your child’s needs. The wheelchair should be a single component in a complete support program designed to serve your child’s needs, strengths and environment.
With this in mind, some hospitals and medical centers go through a complete assessment program to determine the best pediatric power wheelchair for each child. All these factors are taken into consideration in order to build a wheelchair that will suit the specific needs of the child. Some of these considerations include:
* Which mobility controls are most appropriate
* The extent of the need of the child for independent mobility
* The child’s physical abilities and functional skills
* The child’s ability to control his or her upper and lower extremities, as well as head and eye movements
* The child’s ability to use activating switches or joysticks
* The child’s needs for posture support and seating
These are all valuable considerations, whether or not you’re in a situation in which your child’s wheelchair needs can receive a complete assessment through a medical facility. In addition, you’ll want to look for a wheelchair that will grow with your child. Most pediatric power wheelchairs have adjustable brace supports and frame sections that can expand, so that your child’s chair can be used for ten or twelve years.
In addition, you’ll want to understand that a pediatric power wheelchair will require regular maintenance. Beyond normal cleaning, the hardware, tires, seat, braking system, control system and battery will need to be tested on a regular schedule.
On the social side of your child’s wheelchair needs, take into consideration his or her lifestyle, the temperament of your child, how he or she faces social situations, makes new friends, deals with being different, etc. For instance, how will your child handle the frustrations of first learning to use the controls and maneuver the power wheelchair? Will he or she become impatient and quick to give up or will your child be determined? Will your child be embarrassed entering new environments and new experiences confined to the wheelchair? Or will he or she thrive in these circumstances?
Finally, you’ll also want to consider how you intend to transport your child’s pediatric power wheelchair. For instance, these chairs are far heavier and bulkier than a standard manual chair. Do you have a vehicle that’s big enough to handle the chair? Do you have a lift or a rack that can handle the additional weight? Will you need additional help when transporting the wheelchair?
While pediatric power wheelchairs offer greater freedom than ever before, including the ability to allow your child to participate in activities at floor level or table height or even standing in some situations, they also require some important decision making. Choosing the right pediatric power wheelchair is a process of balancing the needs of your child against the practicality of today’s versatile chairs.
