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. During this webinar we will discuss the relationship between epilepsy and heat, how this works, who is more vulnerable, prevention methods, and the influence of the WheelAir system on temperature

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.

How WheelAir has impacted lives

"WheelAir will be a game changer for wheelchair users. I turn it on before I get warm so I am in control of my temperature"

"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 find overheating very, very uncomfortable. It’s also very hard to control. It limits what I can do. My body feels noticeably cooler after using the WheelAir. The main benefit is you can cool down at any time.”

"I constantly overheat, which makes me feel very uncomfortable. I used WheelAir every day on holiday and my body felt noticeably cooler after using it. I was much more comfortable doing everything that I did and I was able to relax when out in the sunshine."

"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."
