SEATING

Safety, comfort and quality of life are the key underpinning principles for our clients who require assistance in seating. A correctly fitted seat, when used alone or in conjunction with other equipment provision, will ensure good posture, pressure care and comfort.

Lowzone

The original high performance memory foam cushion with high fluid like conformity – day long support.

  • High memory means the cushion only returns to its original shape very slowly after compression, eliminating bounce, absorbing shock and reducing shear.
  • In a sandwich construction the cushion can be used any way up, any way round.
  • Options include Eco, Lowzone, Amputee and Urizone for tailored support
