About Martina Tierney OT

An Occupational Therapist, Author, Worldwide Educator and Clinical Director at Seating Matters. Since becoming an Occupational Therapist over 30 years ago I often had difficulty finding seating solutions for clients with complex needs. Seating Matters was therefore established by the Tierney family in 2006, designing and manufacturing a specialised seating range to meet these needs. The Seating Matters Clinical Team worked with Ulster University to carry out an extensive clinical trial with staggering results on the effectiveness of specialist seating in the provision of postural support and pressure management. Our goal at Seating Matters is to provide training to as many Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, TVNs, Carers and all professionals involved in any way in the seating and posture of clients with complex disabilities. The importance of seating for long term disabilities cannot be underestimated and it is our goal at Seating Matters to 'change the world of healthcare seating.'​ I have written The Clinician's Seating Handbook as a guide for therapists and caregivers on how to properly seat a patient. It explains proper seating technique and its role in pressure management. You can request your FREE copy of The Clinician's Seating Handbook here www.seatingmatters.com/handbook or book a FREE Lunch & Learn session here: www.seatingmatters.com/booklunchandlearn Thanks for visiting Seating Matters, I would appreciate please share any useful content and resources with others so as together we may enhance patient care.
