The unique feature that limits this request to just Falcon Rehabilitation is that they build their carts to allow for height adjustments on the frame to allow unique setups from patient to patient. This height adjustment is critical for the manually operated carts and the adjustment places the wheel rims at the desired distance for the patient s arm length to allow self-locomotion. The carts were configured based on proven setups at other VA Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) units that also have purchased from Falcon Rehabilitation. Additionally, the intent is to purchase both the powered and nonpowered carts from the same vendor for ease of maintenance and the mattresses or pads must be capable of being removed for cleaning and must be constructed of anti-bacterial properties. After much research, Falcon Rehabilitation is the only manufacturer that can build a prone cart that will meet the SCI unit needs. They make both and powered and nonpowered carts, the pads and mattress material that will come in contact with patients is made from an anti-bacterial material and is capable of being removed for a thorough cleaning in between patients. Lastly and critical for the intended purpose of the SCI unit is the ability to adjust the height of the frame on the carts for use from patient to patient.
