I’ve added an article on the Canadian made SENSIMAT Pressure Management System for wheelchair users. This system does not directly manage pressures experienced by users but provides data that will enable the user to modify their habits and actions to minimize the risk of developing pressure sores.
This product has the potential to help wheelchair users to minimize and possibly prevent pressure sores developed by long periods of sitting in their wheelchairs.
The SENSIMAT can alert users when they should be shifting their weight, track and record pressures throughout the day and even allow medical professionals to access the data remotely to see how their patients are doing.

I’ve added the Evacuscape Evacuation Chair to the New and Unique Products section of the MobilityBasics.ca website.
The Evacuscape rescue chair is a lightweight wheeled chair that caregivers and emergency workers can use to transport mobility impaired people down staircases in the case of an emergency where the elevators can not be used.
The use of an evacuation chair reduces the chances of injury for both the user and those assisting in their evacuation.
I’ve just added two new products from ConvertaStep to the New and Unique Products section of the website.
The first product is a Welcome Mat Ramp the lifts to create a threshold ramp when needed by wheelchair and scooter users. Its available in three sizes for thresholds up to 8″ high and can be purchased as a motorised version for those who aren’t able to lift the ramp.
The second product is the ConvertaStep Lift that is a simple little lift to allow people to access porches and decks up to 33″ high without the need of a huge ramp or expensive porch lift.
