Our Foam Carved Seating System is ideal for experienced pressure issues yet still require postural support.
SHAPE Carved Foam seats can be made in several foam densities, depending on your needs. It is also possible to use different foams in one seating system to customise the contours to your requirements.
Areas of support can be built-in using firmer foams in the thoracic regions.
All our seats are supplied with two sets of fabric covers and a pelvic positioning belt. We have a range of chest harnesses, headrests and footrests. For those that require additional support, we offer the ability to custom design any of these components.
The final seat is designed to suit your clinical and environmental needs, and we aim to make the seat as compact, stable and secure as possible.
This seat is straightforward to interface with many commonly used manual and powered wheelbases manufacturers and can be made in one or two-piece aluminium or plastic shells.
