What You Need to Know

Personalised 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@ottobock.com to book an appointment. Alternatively please contact your Wheelchair Service representative.
