Specialist seating – solved

Our on-stand clinic at Naidex will signpost you to the right supportive solution

On 6th and 7th July we will be once again exhibiting at Naidex, NEC, in partnership with Ottobock. Alongside our wheelchair and powerchair showcase we will be offering an on-stand seating clinic for all end users and healthcare professionals to discuss individual needs on a one-to-basis. Whether visitors are looking for the right specialist seating for themselves, a family member or as an Occupational Therapist seeking to prescribe for a client, our knowledgeable team will have the answers. In this month’s blog we look into specialist seating services from Recare in a little more detail…

Seating clinic

Based at our headquarters in Oxfordshire, our services include a clinic which signposts towards combined seating and rehabilitation solutions, with a broad range of manual and powered wheelbases for paediatric to bariatric clients, so the best possible client outcomes are achieved. We also provide complete support throughout your journey as a client, including follow up appointments and equipment adjustments to meet changing needs. 

Pressure mapping

A key part of the assessment process is pressure mapping. This advanced technological process collects data on how an individual interacts with a seat so the most effective solution can be specified and designed. This is important if you sit for extended periods of time or have postural issues as effective and ergonomic cushions and backrests will help maintain skin integrity and avoid pressure sores and ulcers. 

We are leading the way with a cost-effective pressure mapping clinic for a wide range of people. Our clients benefit from bespoke seating that has been designed in response to pressure mapping data – ultimately delivering greater comfort, support and well-being.

Helping to justify product funding

If you do not have the budget for the right seating, then the results from pressure mapping can help. The data collected provides indisputable evidence that supports funding from clinicians, such as Occupational Therapists, responsible for prescribing solutions to alleviate discomfort or pain. On an ongoing basis, the provision of correct seating is vital for you to ensure health and well-being are protected and any chronic condition is not exacerbated. 

For both professionals and end users, pressure mapping facilitates an open minded approach to possible new equipment alternatives and is an essential tool to chart changing needs. Providing a tailored supportive base that promotes a balanced musculoskeletal system, is fundamental to ensuring healthy posture.
