Support and Adjustability

Tilt in space can be used to improve posture, head control and redistribute pressure.  This can also be converted to include forward tilt for self transferring situations.  The adjustable back angle recline will accommodate children with limited hip flexion and when used in combination with tilt in space it can prevent sliding from the chair.

Optional lateral supports and supportive pillows can help to maintain or improve midline posture and facilitate function and engagement in activities of daily living such as eating and communicating and playing.  The correct use of these features and accessories can also reduce common problems such as falling to the side when seated.

Pressure Management in Seating Matters Chairs

The combination of memory foam and Dartex in Seating Matters chairs give a medium to high pressure redistribution, however maximum pressure management can be achieved in a chair by applying The Four Principles of Pressure Management in Seating.  Discover more about the pressure management properties of the Seating Matters chairs here.
