Say hello to the Aergo PS…
Sheana Yu has lived experience of scoliosis, and she combined that with a passion for helping people to live life to their fullest through inclusive technology.
Sheana on founding Aergo Health and the launch of her product, Aergo PS,
‘I founded Aergo Health to bring together talented designers who listen, innovate and create ground-breaking products that allow people to do more than ever before. I’m delighted that the Aergo PS will help support children who face many challenges in their lives maintain a healthy sitting position throughout the day with a limited need for hands on support from their caregivers.’
The Aergo PS postural management seating system brings together 4 key elements - air cell technology, the PS frame which interfaces with manual and powered wheelchair bases, a user app (compatible with Android and IOS) as well as a clinician web portal.
Following clinical assessment, the app is used to adjust inflation of the carefully positioned air cells to set the ideal position for each child according to their individual postural requirements. From this baseline, the app may be used by children and young people to adjust their own posture or facilitate their carers in providing ‘hands off’ support.
The Aergo PS provides ongoing positional information on how a child is sitting, giving therapists the ability to review seating positions over time and make adjustments as required.
As well as offering dynamic postural support, the Aergo PS represents a cost-effective and time-saving option within the NHS provision of equipment and care and will be added to the NHS Supply Chain from January 2022 with distribution via BES Healthcare Systems.
