The Paraglide® automated repositioning system for wheelchair users is the latest in assistive device technology that changes the way people are repositioned in wheelchairs in homes, hospitals and care facilities around the world. With Paraglide’s patented technology, a wheelchair user can move freely from a slouched position to an upright position with the touch of a button – safely, independently and with dignity.
Paraglide® is an easy-to-use device that attaches to a wheelchair and will reposition a person from a slouched position to a properly seated upright position at the touch of a button – safely and independently.
Paraglide® is the only wheelchair repositioning device that allows the wheelchair user to move freely, offers independence and dignity, eliminates the risk of caregiver injury, reduces costs and increases productivity, and monitors the level of care.
