Safety, comfort and quality of life are the key underpinning principles for our clients who require assistance in seating. Common problems that occur due to lack of support include slumped position – seated or lying; rotated pelvis and/or spine; head falling forward/sideways/backwards. These can then result in tissue deformation, tissue breakdown, difficulty in breathing, reduced function and comfort in everyday living.

What can be described as good seating?

1. Stable supportive surface – anchor the parts of the body that are active and / or in motion

2. Effectively re-distribute pressure – supporting user stability and comfort

3. Support the back – this dictates the stability of the upper body

4. Promote maximum function – as easy to lean back and relax as it is should be to lean forwards

5. Flexibility – static and dynamic movement

6. Safety and security – of paramount importance to any seating situation

Getting the seat wrong can increase dependence and reduce well-being. Incorrect seat depth and height can lead to isolation and long term immobility and inappropriate provision create further problems.

Correctly fitted balanced seating requires a well-positioned pelvis. When used alone or in conjunction with other equipment provision, it will support good posture, pressure management and comfort.
