Active. Passive. Customized.

As a partner of the specialist trade, interco System! is a leading specialist for high-quality seating and positioning systems. The robust and durable wheelchair components are precisely adapted to the needs of the patients. Depending on requirements, these consist of seat shells and undercarriages as well as customized components such as supports and restraints.

Idea. Concept. Solution.

With our solutions for active and passive sitting, our custom-made products and undercarriages, we offer possibilities to individually care for patients with special needs. Our modular systems can be combined to suit a patient's needs. We support orthopedic technicians, the specialist trade and medical supply stores in the design and production of custom-made care systems and manufacture high-quality and long-lasting special solutions in our own workshops.

Active sitting – promoting activity, optimizing sitting

Our solutions for active sitting allow permanent, pain-free sitting in a physiological posture, promote self-mobility and at the same time ensure secure support. In this way, they support the independence of patients without compromising the necessary safety. The seat shells with custom upholstery can be flexibly supplemented by a wide range of accessories, so that the seating solution can be optimally adapted to the patient's physical characteristics and level of activity.

Passive seating systems – providing support, optimal positioning

Our special care systems for passive sitting allow optimized sitting positions, even under complex conditions. They help in positioning deformities, compensating poor posture and avoiding decubitus. Furthermore, they also extend time periods spent in the care system. The standard systems can be adapted to suit individual needs and can be supplemented by a wide range of additional components to create customized individual care systems.

Custom designs: ideas and quality from the specialists

If patient-appropriate care with standard solutions is not possible, we develop individual special solutions and support the specialist trade in their realization. To this end, we modify and supplement existing care systems and design individual components or complete systems. Our experienced developers and our competent workshop team will find a suitable solution for virtually every challenge.

Undercarriages: for indoors and outdoors

We offer a wide range of robust seat shell undercarriages for indoor and outdoor use. They can be combined with the various seating solutions to form an individual seating system, are crash tested and listed in the aids directory.

What are the advantages of active seating systems?

Active seating systems allow permanent, pain-free sitting in a physiological posture, promote self-mobility and at the same time ensure secure support. In this way, they support the independence of patients without compromising the necessary safety.

The seat shells with custom upholstery can be flexibly supplemented by a wide range of accessories, so that the seating solution can be optimally adapted to the patient's physical characteristics and level of activity.

For whom are active seating systems suitable?

Active seating systems are generally suitable for patients who are very active despite physical limitations, who can assume their sitting position independently or with little support and whose movement sequences can be therapeutically encouraged and improved. Causes for the physical limitations can be functional deficits in the interaction of the pelvis and the spine. These can be caused either by a congenital or acquired deformation of the musculoskeletal system (e.g. bony joint structures) or by congenital or acquired insufficiencies of the locomotor system, the pelvis and/or the spine.

Possible indications include:

  • Paraplegia
  • Plegias
  • Hypertension
  • Hypotension
  • Muscular disorders e.g. muscular dystrophy
  • Skeletal deformities and loss of extremities
  • Neurological disorders
  • Mental disabilities

What are the advantages of passive seating systems?

Passive seating systems enable optimized sitting positions even under more complex conditions. They help in positioning deformities, compensating poor posture and avoiding decubitus. Furthermore, they also extend time periods spent in the care system. The standard systems can be adapted as required and supplemented by a wide range of additional components to create customized care systems.

For whom are passive seating systems suitable?

Passive seating systems are generally suitable for patients who find a sitting position difficult, who are physiologically disturbed or who are unable to assume a sitting position due to anatomical changes. Causes for this can be functional deficits in the interaction of the pelvis and the spine.

These can be caused either by a congenital or acquired deformation of the musculoskeletal system (e.g. bony joint structures) or by congenital or acquired insufficiencies of the locomotor system, the pelvis and/or the spine.

Possible indications include:

  • Loss of body functions due to spasticity
  • Athetosis
  • Paraplegia
  • Plegias
  • Hypertension
  • Hypotension
  • Muscular disorders e.g. muscular dystrophy
  • Skeletal deformities and loss of extremities
  • Neurological disorders
  • Mental disabilities

Do I need a doctor’s prescription for an interco System! Care system?

Yes. In Germany, the attending physician is responsible for the provision of aids.

It is important that the physician notes the exact requirements on the prescription and indicates as precisely as possible which additional components are needed for the care system.

In other countries  the proceedings may be different. Please contact us directly if you have questions.

Who assumes the costs for the care system?

For Germany, the proceedings are as following: If the indication is appropriate, the health insurance funds cover the costs for aids listed in the aids directory of the GKV Association (central interest group of the statutory health and nursing insurance funds in Germany).

As a rule, the interco System! care systems are listed in the medical aids directory. This assures assumption of costs.

If you have any questions or need information about the assumption of costs in other countries, we will be happy to advise you in a personal consultation. 

How does interco System! support the specialist trade?

interco System! sees itself as a partner of the specialist trade and supports the trade at two points in the care process:

1. Conceptual design:
After the specialist trade has conducted a needs analysis, interco System! creates a concept with a proposal for the care system, a technical outline and a quotation and coordinates this with the specialist trade.

2. Production:
After coordination with the cost bearer and patient measurement by the specialist trade, interco System! takes over the production of the aid in our workshops and adjusts the aid after a fitting if necessary.

Does interco System! also offer care systems for adults?

Yes, interco System! care systems such as the ERGOLINE® and the ORTHOLIGHT® series are also suitable for adults. Here, the maximum load or maximum back rest height of the respective series must always be taken into account.

In the area of custom-made products, there are virtually no limits to the care systems.

Detailed information can be found in the technical data of the individual series.

Can an interco System undercarriage be combined with seat shells from other manufacturers?

Yes. An intermediate adapter is available as an optional extra for accommodating seat shells from other manufacturers. Please observe the specifications for the respective product series.

A trapezoidal adapter receptacle is included in the standard equipment for easy installation of interco seat shells.

Per mail. Per telephone. In person.
