Seating Matters was founded with the aim of improving the standard of clinical, therapeutic seating for patients. To help achieve this goal, we conduct research and educate clinicians on how to improve the quality of care for patients across the world.
Seating Matters products have been clinically proven, alongside correct assessment and provision, to reduce the risk pressure injuries and improve posture and function.
A clinical field trial revealed significant findings including;
reduction in falls & sliding
decrease in pressure injuries
less time spent in bed
Seating Matters chairs have been clinically designed to provide postural support for those with degenerative, neurological conditions including dementia. The Seating Matters Atlanta™ and Sorrento™ have both obtained rating 1A accreditation by the DSDC.
Patients living with dementia are often characterised as being 'aggressive', 'agitated', and 'challenging'. Understanding what the patient is trying to communicate enables a more holistic and therapeutic approach to care.
A recent international study undertaken by Seating Matters showed Seating Matters chairs have a calming effect on patients with respondent reporting a staggering reduction in agitation and pressure injuries, alongside notable reductions in falls, staff supervision, contractures and muscle tone.
