Changing the Shape of Custom Seating
Whether you chose the trusted OBSS Tru-Shape or the streamlined OBSS Ortho-Shape, your clients will benefit from a clinically-based seating solution. The form takes shape during the molding and digitizing process. The digitizing technology creates a 3-dimensional image that is easy to rotate and view precisely.
This new, lightweight seating system offers a unique blend of orthotic and seating approaches combined with the ease of digital ordering. The end result is especially appropriate for people with high positioning needs, and the system incorporates body alignment, pressure distribution, and well-appointed directional forces for postural control. The resulting low-profile seating solution helps provide the ultimate in support and freedom of movement.
Based on sound seating principles, your client’s shape is reproduced in ABS using high-temperature thermoplastics that are vacuum-formed to replicate the digital image you created. Liners are added to complete the system (two are standard and you can opt for up to four) to offer growth and greater adjustability to accommodate things like bulky winter clothing.
Minor modifications can be made at trial fit, however, little adaptation is required given the nature of the product design. Field modification is also an option for small adaptations. Above all, OBSS Ortho-Shape is an effective postural control seating solution built on a foundation of strong evaluation techniques and a great mold.
