Juditta is a tilting and reclining wheelchair designed and built by Ormesa for adults and the elderly with reduced mobility. Juditta’s backrest supports correct posture, offering stability and preventing contractures and the onset of deformities. The seat’s viscoelastic cords adapt to each individual user’s anatomy, preventing rubbing and pressure sores.
Juditta’s special shape guarantees:
Lorenzo is a twenty-three year old man suffering from a rare degenerative genetic disease. We went to Budrio, near Bologna, Italy, to understand how Juditta has helped him overcome a complex postural problem that prevented him from participating in daily family activities.
The user’s weight is evenly distributed across the seat area and backrest, relieving pressure on the lower back and hips. The special shape and material of the seat prevents the build-up of pressure along the whole length of the spine.
The reclining backrest and tilting seat area adjusts to provide the best support in any given situation, allowing pressure to be reduced at various points and thus minimizing the risk of sores.
Research conducted on Juditta confirms its optimal uniform body weight distribution across the seat area and backrest. The reclining backrest and tilting seat area provide optimal support for each individual user, preventing the development of sores by distributing pressure evenly and allowing different user positions.
