Josie ~ Whole Body Supporting Cushion

The Josie Support System Cushion unit has been designed to curb an upper scoliosis, as well as giving the whole body support, and to reduce hip rotation. This unit can give abduction if carefully positioned, alternatively an abduction wedge can be used also in case of high active clients. The entire unit offers firm warm support, therefore maintaining a good body symmetry for night positioning. Trial reports on the JOSIE RANGE state that clients with a kyphosis / lordosis are very well accommodated and can lie supine without the risk of pressure areas. These cleverly designed units allow the carer / therapist to encourage and so to achieve shoulder flexion or promote extension. This unit can also be used for prone positioning with quadriplegics and tetraplegics. Please note the JOSIE range will not cope with patients who are high tone.

Bathing Cradle Review

Hi Andrew

We have had a really exciting day today: our pupil has tried the Shower Cradle in the pool and it is absolutely amazing!! We set it up this morning with the rolls and headrest ect and the pupil has just been in the water independently for the first time with the TA beside and not needing to hold on to support at all.

we have shown it to lots of staff and will now start assessing other pupils to see how many more would benefit from using the cradle. it is so adaptable with the adjustable mesh/tilt feature and the different loops to hoist it into the water and it will make such a difference to our less mobile pupils.

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”
