ROHO Products Selected for Best Picks by Mobility Management

ROHO’s new Smart Check™ with Sensor-Ready single valve cushions, and ROHO’s AGILITY Back Systems are named in the 2015 Clinician Best Picks by Mobility Management Magazine.

“Our Best Picks are chosen exclusively by healthcare professionals who work with seating & wheeled mobility equipment every day and know every product detail,” said Editor Laurie Watanabe. “Our winners have proven to be true innovators and consumer advocates, even in challenging funding atmospheres.”

For the fifth consecutive year, Mobility Management’s editorial staff asked clinicians and Assistive Technology Professionals (ATPs) specializing in seating & wheeled mobility to name their favorite complex rehab products. The expert selections are published in the Mobility Management July 2015 issue.

Mobility Management Publisher Karen Cavallo said, “We’re pleased once again to turn the spotlight on a few of the many rehab products making a difference to prominent OTs, PTs, ATPs and their clients every day. We’re happy to help celebrate the technology that optimizes independence and supports positive clinical outcomes for so many children, teens and adults who use wheelchairs.”

ROHO® is the industry-recognized leader in skin and soft tissue protection. The company pioneered the field of skin protection with the invention of ROHO DRY FLOATATION® technology – which is clinically proven to help prevent and heal pressure ulcers. Now with the 2015 introduction of Smart Check, the world’s first electronic cushion security system and with the success of the AGILITY Back System, ROHO demonstrates the company’s continued focus on innovative solutions.

Smart Check enhances compliance and communication. Clinicians can use Smart Check to easily set up a ROHO Sensor Ready Cushion, and clients have unlimited ability to check their ROHO inflation and immersion. Smart Check makes ROHO cushions accessible to even more clients, so clinicians can recommend ROHO with even greater confidence.

ROHO’s AGILITY Back System successfully fills gaps in the competitive back market, as shown by the Mobility Management Best Pick award. AGILITY is a strong, secure, adjustable back system featuring ROHO’s AIR FLOATATION™ Technology. And the easy-to-install and adjust hardware options boast the market’s best strength-to-weight ratio. Clinicians know that once they install an AGILITY, it stays secure and in position – just one of the reasons the product is a “Best Pick.”

“I am so proud of the ROHO team and grateful to Mobility Management for recognizing our latest products.  Even more fulfilling, though, is the knowledge that these new products are addressing the challenges of the clinicians and people who use ROHO products,” said Tom Borcherding, ROHO president and industry veteran.

In addition to the feature in the July print issue, 2015 Best Pick winners appear in the online version of the story on, and will have their products featured online at

The Best Picks program celebrated its fifth anniversary in 2015.
