OBSS™ has been the trusted choice for custom carved cushions for more than 15 years. Now, the new Ortho-Shape gives you a second, light-weight shaped option with the same custom fit.
OBSS™ Tru-Shape and OBSS™ Ortho-Shape
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 modifications are also an option by:
Above all, OBSS Ortho-Shape is an effective postural control seating solution built on a foundation of strong evaluation techniques and a great mold.

Sense™ 3D Scanner
The industry’s leading custom seating system just got easier to use with new handheld scanners. The Sense™ 3D Scanner is cutting edge image capturing technology, which helps ensure that your patients’ seating systems are manufactured using the most current technology available. Because of that, the Sense 3D Scanner system is less prone to human error, and it could help you digitally capture molds up to 50% faster than with previous technology. Features include:
OBSS™ Tru-Shape (formerly OBSS)
OBSS has been the custom carved cushion of choice for nearly two decades, and the expertise shows in the finished product.
Customizations like soft spots, unique hardware choices, and your pick of finishes mean you get a truly custom product designed exactly right for your patient. Based on sound seating principles and a thorough patient assessment, your clients’ shape is captured, digitized and reproduced in foam using a 5-axis carver. This process results in a high degree of precision and accuracy, uniquely defining complex contours. Pressure distribution and comfort are key benefits from OBSS Tru-Shape.
With two densities of foam, a solid mounting surface and a selection of cover options, it is easily adapted to several client populations. An optional trial fit allows you to further shape and refine contours to best suit your client’s needs.
Use OBSS Tru-Shape for your most involved clients who need a seating solution that offers postural integrity, pressure relief and comfort. Our Support Promise We know you’re busy providing patient care and fitting, and we’re committed to being more than a vendor.
