Movi Medical Releases an Innovative Breakthrough in Wheelchair Design
Date:4/10/2013

ny and Cooper put together an advisory team ranging from hospital administrators to transport team members to help with the chair's initial concept. For more than 24 months, the design team shadowed the transport staff and asked thousands of questions of personnel and patients, in order to address concerns and offer the highest level of comfort possible.

The Movi features a seat back designed around the Grandjean curve, the natural curve of the human spine. It promotes patient comfort and optimal spinal posture, minimizing the compressed breathing that Cooper's father endured. The Movi also features an innovative new footplate. Unlike traditional wheelchairs, where the footrest is an obstacle, the Movi footplate rests flat on the floor while patients enter and exit the chair. It also eliminates the awkward process of lifting a patient's legs onto the footrest.

The ergonomic handle is adjustable and designed for maximum comfort and maneuverability. Anyone between the height of 4'8" to 6'6" can comfortably push the chair. The Movi features a lower center of gravity and less rolling resistance so it's more maneuverable and easier to turn. Other built-in features include an IV pole, O2 tank support and over 7 cubic feet of integrated storage.

Cooper has a long history in seating design, from office furniture to automotive seating. His experiences had a great impact on the Movi.

"When creating the Movi, I wanted to integrate some of the same ergonomic thinking that was guiding commercial seating design into a better method of transporting patients," said Cooper. "My only regret is that my father never had the opportunity to use it," Cooper said. "However, it excites me to think about the improved quality of life for those who can be served by a Movi and the reduction of healthcare worker injuries that the Movi design helps prevent."
