APT Free Seminar: Custom Moulded Seating for Complex Postures

This session will cover the pros and cons of moulded seating for complex postures, including innovative new methods of manufacturing moulded seating.

Custom moulded seating is often the optimum seating solution for many users. With custom moulded seating intimately following the curves and contours of the user, it can become a vital tool in the overall postural and health management of the user with complex physical disabilities. When moulded correctly, it can be used to support physiological, psychological and functional participation.


Learning objectives:

1) To understand the benefits of custom moulded seating

2) To offer an insight into manufacturing processes involved in seating options

3) To discuss when custom moulded seating should be considered as a feasible seating solution

4) To highlight the clinical processes that help achieve the best outcomes

5) To illustrate the process of shape capturing for custom moulded seating


Lunch and refreshments are provided. Please email if you have any dietary requirements.
