AKTIVLINE Basis

Standardized dynamic seat and back including wheelchair

The AKTIVLINE ® basic model is a standardised care system with all proven dynamic components. It is available in 3 sizes and grows with the patient and can also be adapted to the individual patient. The width and depth of the seat and the height of the back are all designed to have 5 cm adjustment intervals, so that they can be simply and rapidly adjusted to the patient‘s measurements. The novel abduction wedge foot bank system (AFS)* is included in the basic confi guration. The integrated abduction wedge, including the dynamic foot bank system, can be folded under the seat unit at any time and ensures an easy transfer of the patient. The entire care unit can be simply removed from the undercarriage and its weight is optimised.

  • Dynamic seat system in 3 sizes
  • AFS system* (abduction wedge-foot bank system)
  • A variety of additional standardised options
  • Can be combined with Permobil electric wheelchairs
  • C300 and C400 (in preparation)
  • Small sizes can be combined with the light
  • undercarriage MINY ®

Medical requirements

 

  • Infantile cerebral paresis: spastic tetraplegia, dyskinetic tetraplegia, tetraplegia with dystonic spasms, athetosis and chorea-athetosis
  • Cerebral movement impediments.

With this group of patients, sitting as well as the ability to make targeted movements of the head and the upper extremities is very severely restricted as a result of the following patterns:

  • Extension reactions
  • Spasms during extension
  • Pathological movement patterns in global extension
  • Episthotonus
  • Startle reaction
  • Fright reaction
  • Synkinetic extension movements of the trunk, of the upper and lower extremities
  • Dystonic spasms
  • Asymmetric and symmetric tonic reflex of the back of the neck
  • Tonic labyrinthine reflex

Care through the provision of a conventional, rigid seat shell is frequently not possible or very difficult to achieve, due to a lack of acceptance. In particular, the high pressure forces, resulting from conventional sitting care, are impossible for the patient to bear.

In addition, conventional sitting care increases the risk of the occurrence of: hip luxation, painful hips, shortening of the muscles, secondary damage as a result of immobility, muscle contractions or reduced mobility of the joints.

The dynamic seat shell of the AKTIVLINE seating system enables automatic changing between various body postures and thus encourages breathing, the cardiovascular system, digestion, mobility of the body joints and helps prevent the development of pressure sores.

Medical Device Directive

 

The National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds is the central lobby of the statutory health insurance and long-term care insurance funds in Germany.
It issues the medical device directive considering all relevant regulations. This directory is continuously updated. All available products are assigned to different product groups defined by field of application.

All manufacturers have the opportunity to apply their products for registration in the medical device directive. It is required that those products fulfil certain criteria as well as quality standards. The quality standard requirements are published in the product groups and service requirements are defined (§139 SGB V).

Every product group contains a classification and a definition with legal indemnification descriptions and indications that justify a care.

By integration into the medical device directive, it is guaranteed that the care takes place demand-driven, quality-ensured and continuous and follows up-to-date medical know-how (§70 SGB V).

The National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds has created an online version of the medical device directive according to § 139 SGB V. Interested parties can comfortably and well-directed retrieve, sort, filter and print all information.

But it is imperative: The reimbursement of medical devices by statutory health insurances is only possible when the product is listed in the medical device directive. However, the medical device directive is not legally binding. It only has an informative character and it delivers broad information on the compulsory treaty indemnity and the nature and quality of available products.

The registry into the medical device directive was applied for. The product AKTIVLINE Basis is in application procedure. Reimbursement may be possible.
