Consolor Arm Supports
Consolor offers various arm supports which can be fitted to any wheelchair’s existing armrest metalwork by removing the standard armrest pad.
Ergonomic Arm Trough
Ergonomic arm troughs are designed to fit the natural arm curvature, and feature a unique cut-out at the elbow to provide users with flexibility of various arm positions.
It is made from moulded, skinny polyurethane, and incorporates a triple track extrusion to allow a variety of mounting positions/angles.
Ergonomic Hand Pad Kit
The hand pad kit is designed to fit to the ergonomic arm trough. It provides a flat surface for the hand and fingers to be supported in a neutral relaxed position. It is made from the same materials as the ergonomic arm trough.
Elevating Swivel Unit
The elevating swivel unit allows for easy horizontal and angle adjustments. The unit can be mounted on the right or left side, but in the standard configuration it is prepared for mounting on the right side.
It allows for a much wider range of armrest positions compared to using standard armrest mounting. This is useful for example when the armrests need to be positioned inwards in a relaxed position. Using the swivel unit, the armrests can be adjusted quickly to allow ease of access to and from the seat, without having to remove the armrests completely.
The forearm angle can be set to 0°, 12.5°, or 25°, whilst horizontal rotation is adjustable in approximately 15° intervals. The unit can also be set to rotate freely through 180°.
Attention: Using the elevating swivel unit raises the height of the armrest by approximately 3cm.
Please note: The Elevating Swivel Unit is an optional extra, and is NOT required to use the Ergonomic Arm Troughs.
Lateral Posterior Arm Supports
Lateral posterior arm supports are named such because they provide a lateral and posterior block to encourage the client’s arms to be positioned neutrally, and to discourage extension.
The arm supports come with a padded darted cover inside, and a durable vinyl layer on the outside. This provides an easily wipeable surface, that is both soft and durable.
These arm supports are custom-made to your required dimensions, to allow optimum arm positioning for each individual.
