iShear - Measuring shear force
made easy

iShear helps you make seating outstanding

Sliding is a huge clinical problem but difficult to quantify. Until now! Introducing iShear: the smart device that measures Total Shear Force*, helping you evaluate
the positioning of a person in a seating system.

The ultimate solution for set-up and long-term use

iShear helps you minimize sliding forces when setting up the wheelchair. iShear also allows you to educate wheelchair users and care givers about the ideal use of the wheelchair.

* Total Shear Force (TSF): The total shear force in the seat plane measured by the iShear is the anterior-posterior force parallel to the seat plane. It’s measured between the cushion and the seat base interface.

For wheelchairs from 35 up to 50 cm (width and depth)
Bluetooth connection between iShear and mobile device
