Juditta wheelchair – a unique seating design

The Juditta is a wheelchair with a seating concept for patients who need to maintain a laying position for a long time. It has a tilt-in-space function and recline feature for the backrest which allows the user to assume a stable and comfortable position. The Juditta is an alternative to a bed and suitable for adult and elderly patients who need an extended or permanent stay in a wheelchair or in bed.

The design of the Juditta is unique with its v- shaped backrest that gives a proper alignment to the trunk without putting any pressure on the spine. It provides greater stability without the need of side supports, relieving and redistributing the pressure by increasing the sitting position tolerance.

Tilting and reclining of the backrest make it possible to get the ideal supported position that allows a variation of the pressure points and help prevent pressure sores. Tilting and recline are operated by two independent gas springs that absorb the user’s weight making it easier to be handled by the caregiver. The user’s weight is well distributed between the seat and backrest, excluding pressure peaks on the ischial area.

The backrest is made from semi-elastic material and the seat and backrest follows the anatomy of the user adapting to it without generating any pressure and/or rubbing. The covering and the upholstery are both highly breathable, allowing the passage of air and maintaining an optimal microclimate.
