The International Standards Organization (ISO), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA) have established standards for wheelchair seating — ISO16840-3:2014 and ANSI | RESNA WC-3:S3 2013.
By establishing standard sizes, testing methods and performance criteria, such as a maximum slip of one centimeter, the new standards assure that standards-compliant wheelchair positioning products, such as Bodypoint's, can deliver the predictable, consistent fit, performance and durability that you expect. To give you greater confidence in the devices you sell, buy, apply and wear, Bodypoint is proud to offer postural supports that exceed these global standards, and we are the only postural support line known to test to all applicable standards for each model that we sell.
