Technical Features

troncoSeat and back

Abbraccio® is basically a system consisting of a seat and a backrest, built with elements arranged directly on the patient. The back support can be reclined to allow varying the angle of inclination of the back/sacral area.The modules and calibrations allow any configuration changes and postural seat adjustments according to the evolution of the child, in particular, the adjustment range for the width and the depth exceeds 15 cm. The fabric that lines the Abbraccio® is made of a soft, breathable, removable and washable material. As you can see from the picture, this is the basis on which we add the various components in order to ensure the child's posture and comfort; objectives which, due to the severity of the diagnostic picture of the boy/girl, often cannot be achieved only with the seat.



abbraccio.cuneoPostural wedge-shaped cushion
The Abbraccio® wedge is built after taking as many as 10 measurements and is not a simple retractor but an actual system that stabilizes and postures the child. This wedge-shaped and fully customized retractor can be modified at any time in accordance with the concept of modularity, which inspires Abbraccio®; covered by breathable material it is removable and washable.





abbraccio.contenimenti.bacinoPelvis immobilizer

The lateral pelvis containment elements are made to measure and can be adjusted at any time alongany plane: sagittal, frontal and transverse. They are made on the basis of the overall postural project and can either be a simple containment for the pelvis or become prominent postural immobilizers that reach up to join the wedge front retractor. The pelvis containment elements, such as the trunk support, are made with an aluminium core and a soft covering lined with breathable, removable and washable fabric.





Pelvic strapabbraccio.cinghia.pelvica
The pelvic strap ensures a precise and stable positioning of the pelvis thanks to the different possibilities of fixing the belt on the base. This type of adjustment can also be modified at any time. As an alternative to the Abbraccio® belt (2 or 4 points), all commercial belts can also be applied.







Adjustable backrest

The height adjustment of the backrest is provided by inserting two, three or more brackets each 20 or 30 cm long which sliding along each other ensure an extension of more than 20 cm










Lumbar support

 The materials and the dimensions of the support are chosen in relation to the postural corrections to be made.












abbraccio.pelotteSide support
From a technical point of view, the side supports are the most enveloping element of the Abbraccio® whilst representing the most comfortable and reassuring one for the child. The child, in fact, in addition to receiving an important postural containment, receives a protection and safety proprioceptive input nearly equivalent to his parents' arms. The side supports, like every other element constituting the Abbraccio®, are completely tailor-made with an aluminium core and a soft covering with breathable, removable and washable fabric. The Abbraccio® side supports, despite being custom built, are in any case modular and adjustable along each plane: sagittal, frontal and transversal.

The chest strap placed between the two side supports, offers a further restraint on the chest which with the side supports helps in giving an important proprioceptive input.











Shoulder containment

This accessory, matched with the position and shape of the armrest, ensures containing the shoulders, particularly in postural changes as, for example, when increasing the degree of tilting.








The Abbraccio® headrest is custom built and adjustable in height, it provides adequate support for the child's head because it reflects every aspect of the physiological characteristics and pursues postural objectives. The support module therefore provides height adjustment, but also adjustments for the antero-posterior, lateral and tilting directions and is lined with soft, breathable, removable and washable fabric.









Neck Positioning
The soft under jaw collar technically reproduces the doctor's or therapist's hand that creates the postural containment he wants to obtain for the child's head with his gestures during the evaluation phase. The soft under jaw collar is entirely tailored made in relation to the child's measurements, but may be changed at any time to accommodate developments subsequent to delivery.








The vest is adjustable in height, both in the upper part and in the lower part, through a belt-pass which stabilizes the trunk without crushing the shoulders, but on the contrary it postures and fixes them in the best wanted position.












The armrests are modelled for containing the forearm, with pre-set modular elements that allow height, width, inclination and antero-posterior direction adjustments. The upper part of the armrest is covered with a washable material which allows care givers to keep the support clean with a simple wipe with a clean sponge, while the rod coating is removable and washable.









The Abbraccio® tray is also built on the basis of measurements taken in the testing phase and is covered with a water-repellent and washable material. The shape and the containment edge are customized to specific rehabilitation needs.
