Liquid SunMate Foam-in-Place Seating
Available from Dynamic Systems Inc.
People come in all shapes and sizes, so they need a seating system that does, too. The Liquid SunMate Foam-in-Place-Seating (FIPS) system was developed in 1984 to meet the needs of the severely disabled. FIPS forms to a person’s unique shape in just five minutes, providing advanced posture control and pressure relief almost instantly. Orthopedic professionals and rehabilitation centers use the advanced posture control of FIPS custom-contouring assistive seating technology to slow progressive deformities, improve body functions, and ease the soreness and fatigue associated with confined or prolonged seating.
Each FIPS unit contains three pretested, premeasured liquid ingredients that are mixed and poured into a molding bag placed on the client's chair. The client is positioned on the bag, and the liquid foam rises to form a custom-contoured SunMate cushion within minutes. A total fabric-finished, waterproof insert can be completed in two to four hours (depending on contour complexity).
Because it can quickly mold to any shape or size, Foam-In-Place Seating (FIPS) can be used in many different applications. Temporary foam supports, gerry chairs, supine lyers, head rests, and foot supports are just a few examples.
SunMate and FIPS have naturally low levels of toxicity because plant ingredients constitute over 50% of the formulation. This adds a sense of freshness you won’t find in other seat cushions, and is one of the most affordably priced seating systems available.
