Throughout my career I have worked in acute care, community, nursing homes, rehab and I have specialised in seating throughout my 30 years as an Occupational Therapist. During my time working with patients, I struggled to find chairs which met their clinical and functional needs.
After outlining the different features which my patients required, including pressure care and easy adjustability. I set the goal to change the world of healthcare seating, by designing therapeutic chairs that would meet pressure management, posture, comfort, mobility and functional requirements of patients.
Seating Matters began when my husband, James, an Engineer, began designing custom chairs to meet the needs of my individual patients. Our passion was to solve seating problems to support other clinicians who were experiencing the same as myself and families.
Our 3 sons, Jonathan, Ryan and Martin could see that there was a need for these chairs globally and that other patients could massively benefit also, not just my own.
At Seating Matters the patient is at the heart of every decision and we have created a culture of continuous improvement, meaning that our products and services are continually enhanced to provide the best service and help as many people in need around the world as possible.
