Message from the President
At 5 Minds Mobility we follow our motto with every new product we develop. Prevention Through Innovation isn’t something we take lightly; you can see and feel the result of that passion in every item from our award winning surfaces and wheelchair seating to our complete line of pillows and positioning products. Every component is scrutinized to ensure it meets/exceeds our exacting standards. With innovations like Shear Reduction Technology (SRT) and our extensive use of GelFlex we have developed a line of products that provide excellent comfort and prevention. The Align, Allay and Adapt mattresses not only greatly reduce the occurrence of wounds they minimize client sliding down the bed typical of other surfaces. ACe seating, which also utilizes SRT, won the College of Ontario Network for Industry Innovations Award. Our pillows and positioning products are of the premium quality with extensive testing and design associated with each one.
We welcome any comments and the opportunity to present our products to you.
Shear Reduction Technology
Shear Reduction Technology (SRT) is a patent pending system that addresses shear ‘from the inside out’. Third party clinical studies of SRT have validated its efficacy and allowed us to optimize performance. As a result of these trials, the company was awarded the Colleges of Ontario Network of Industry Innovation Award in 2011.
Just a few words on your new gel overlay. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. I find it to be very comfortable, relieves some of the pain off my pressure points and adjusts well with my body temperature very quickly. I would recommend this gel pad to enhance comfort while in bed.
