The challenge

Saddle seat to facilitate posturePoor posture control made sitting at a dining table very difficult for this man, resulting in digestion problems. In a similar case, the responsible occupational therapist had found that a saddle seat with customised support had proved beneficial, but there is no commercial source for such equipment.

A personalised seat was manufactured to a design and dimensions specified in conjunction with the occupational therapist.

The client is now able to eat at a table.
