Dear, IATP,

I contact you as I moved a few months ago to Chicago, and I am looking to collaborate/work together with clinics and hospitals that provide custom seating and positioning for children with disabilities.

I designed affordable seating systems for children and adults, with customized patient measurements. These one-of-a-kind sets are then manufactured using 3D Printing and can be locally made in a few hours with minimal human labor.

This product can improve families’ and children’s life but is also a great opportunity to save families’ budgets on expansive positioning equipment and make a profit for hospitals and clinics. I would be grateful for your help to contact specialists and organizations in seating and positioning in the Chicago area. I also would be happy to set a meeting and present this product to you if it interests your organization.

Sincerely
Alexander Geht

Hello! My name is Erin and I am a school nurse at Athens CUSD. I have a student that suffered a stroke at a very young age and has right sided weakness. It is very difficult for him to tie shoes and drawstrings on sweatpants. Our occupational therapist recommended some great options for his shoes, but I am curious if anything exists for his pants drawstrings? He often wears sweatpants without them, but several times he has needed assitance because he has pants with them. I know he is uncomfortable asking for assistance and I would love to be able to help him achieve this independently! Thank you so much for your assistance!!
