Clinical & Functional
Moderate Needs Complex Needs Custom Needs
Contouring of the cushioning is achieved by adjusting the multiple layered padded pocket cells to create areas of greater or lesser support. On-the-spot contouring allows the patient to adopt their preferred posture for maximum function and comfort. SuperShape’s simple method accomplishes superior seating results by accurately contouring to the complex shapes seen in highly involved clients.
