Heat, epilepsy, and WheelAir
Did you know that when your body overheats, there is an increased risk of developing a seizure? For those with epilepsy, the risk of experiencing a seizure is even more likely when they have a difficult time managing their body temperature, for example, due to close fitting seating systems, environmental temperature, or medication.

Warmte en vocht in rolstoelzittingen
Vocht en warmte gerelateerde klachten zijn bekende symptomen voor hen die gebruik maken van een rolstoel of voor hen die werken met cliënten met complexe zitbehoeften. WheelAir heeft de afgelopen vijf jaar onderzoek gedaan naar dit onderwerp om beter te begrijpen hoe de symptomen herkend kunnen worden. We hebben nu tools ontwikkeld om het hitte- en vochtrisico van een client klinisch te evalueren en leveren daarmee een bijdrage aan het verantwoorden van de vergoeding. Deze tools zijn nu beschikbaar en we zijn klaar om deze kennis met u te delen.

"I mainly suffer from heat rashes on my skin which show up as red bumps. The big problem is that these bumps on the lower back and buttocks tend to open easily, which leads them to getting infected. "With WheelAir, I have to worry less about heat and moisture related issues and I no longer have to use creams or antibiotics."

"I went to an outdoor party and it was such a warm night. I kept my WheelAir on all night and, I have to say, I really do think it helped stop me from overheating all night. It also kept me looking presentable in my fancy clothes and not a sweaty mess. WheelAir really has made a big difference to my life."
