Description

Description

The ‘P’ Pod is one of our most popular products. It offers a whole different seating experience for those with specialised seating needs and is great for a range of ages from infants to young adults.

‘P’ Pod was developed as a response to clients who said: ‘we want a different seating option at home!’ Bean bags have traditionally been used for years with the disabled but they lacked the true support the client needed. So SOS put on its thinking cap and came up with the ‘P’ Pod.

There are three components to the ‘P’ Pod – the seat, a bolster support and the beanbag or Pod.

The P in ‘P’ Pod stands for postural, and postural support technology SOS is famous for is an integral part of this design.

Options & Accessories

Mobile Base

To assist with the use of larger P Pods we have developed a mobile base unit which allows the P Pod to be easily moved around indoors. This allows for easy maneuvering of the ‘P’ Pod indoors and the mobile base is also available with a powered tilt mechanism where changes in positional orientation are considered important to improve general comfort and tolerance.

It comes with cushioned handles, locking front castors and its design makes using mobile hoists simple. It too can be custom-coloured so it coordinates with the ‘P’ Pod.
