A Seating Specialist who has been clinically trained by Martina Tierney OT will visit at a time and place to suit you to carry out a free seating assessment. This can be a home, hospital or care facility. They can support an OT or Physiotherapist or assess the patient independently.
During the seating assessment, the Seating Specialist will assess the patient’s condition and requirements as well as record critical measurements such as hip width and flexion along with further notes on their sitting and transfer technique. This ensures the best chair is recommended to suit the individual and that each chair provided fits the patient’s specific needs.
"I did a home visit yesterday with a Seating Matters rep, my patient has been in discomfort so long, he cried with joy when we sat him in the Sorrento. Days like that remind me why I'm still an OT ."
“When we found out about the Seating Matters chair, Mike was able to come give us a demo of the chair at Bev’s care facility. To test it out, we all sat in it and rolled around in it to see if the chair could be flipped over like Bev had done with other chairs."
“After our Seating Assessment, it was the first time in 15 awful months that we could see a future for our Mum that would allow her to leave her bed.”
