Personalised Clinical Assessment

Our seating team of clinical professionals, consisting of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Rehabilitation Engineers, are known for their experience and expertise within the field of custom seating.

We aim to design and manufacture SHAPE Moulded Seating Systems to offer maximum comfort and functionality, this is achieved by completing a thorough clinical and environmental assessment.

A physical evaluation is also completed and includes : joint movement and range, sitting balance, alignment and flexibility of the spinal column including the head and neck.

Many other individual practical needs and restrictions are also taken into consideration at this stage, such as skin condition, pain, spasticity, vision, reflexes, eating needs, toileting needs, breathing, transfer methods, communication needs and other factors that affect positioning.

If you believe you would benefit from a custom moulded seat, we can provide a complete service from assessment to delivery. Contact us via the enquiry form or at seating@remove-this.ottobock.com to book an appointment. Alternatively please contact your Wheelchair Service representative.

Custom Contoured Seating

Shape Moulded Seating is appropriate for users that require a high level of support from their seating systems. It has been designed as a streamline seat with a thinner profile that can be trimmed down to suit the needs of the user or fit in a variety of wheelbases.

Comprising of two moulded foam liners inside a strong moulded plastic shell, it can accommodate some growth, by removal of the liner layers.

This seat is carved and vacuum formed, using computer aided manufacturing techniques, so we can assure the uniformity and strength of the seat in all areas.

Customisable Design

The seat design can incorporate a variety of reinforcing methods, to offer increased strength without the need to frame externally. Pressure recesses and ventilation can also be introduced in areas where additional cushioning or air circulation may be required

The Shape Moulded Seat can be manufactured with either upholstered bonded or loose covers. All covers are machine washable and adherent to the standards required.

All our seats are supplied with 2 sets of fabric covers and a pelvic positioning belt. We have a range of chest harnesses, headrests and footrests. For those that require additional support we offer the ability to custom design any of these components.

The final seat is designed to suit your clinical and environmental needs, we aim to make the seat as compact, stable and secure as possible.
