Custom Seating Solutions
In the case that an off the shelf solution is not available, we are able to offer custom moulded seating. Custom moulded seating arguably offers the highest level of pressure relief available. By maximising contact with each contour of the body in contact with seating, peak pressures are universally lowered. However, custom moulds are not just useful for pressure care - they can be used to accommodate or support even the most complex postural presentations or as an aid to atypical muscle tone and spasticity.
After clearly outlining the requirements for postural support, our specialists use non-latex bean bags to take a fully immersive impression of the body. Once we are sure that we have a good shape and have built in all necessary areas of support, any remaining air is vacuumed out of the bags, fixing the mould in place.
Next, the latest scanning technology is used to capture a 3D model of the mould. Depending on the style of seat, this model is sent off to be precision carved or vacuum formed. We typically use a combination of foams and inserts for added comfort, pressure relief and in some cases, temperature regulation.
Custom seats have historically had a reputation for being chunky and clinical - but the modern custom and moulded seats we provide have a much neater appearance and are available in a choice of fabrics and colours, to ensure they enhance, rather than compromise, the style of your chair.
