Skillbuilders® positioning

About the Skillbuilders® brand

Skillbuilders® molded foam positioning products were introduced to the occupational therapy and special needs universe in the 1980s. Many of you who have received physical therapy after an injury have probably been positioned with a Skillbuilders® roll or wedge to bolster and optimally position your body for treatment. Many special needs children have also benefited from the Skillbuilders® modular adaptive positioning systems in their every day life.

The product line includes molded foam products manufactured with an integral coating. The coating is tough, yet soft, and is washable. Skillbuilders® positioning products are manufactured in the USA and CE marked for sale outside the USA.
