What happens during a seating assessment
Your seating assessment will last approximately 60 minutes. During that time, one of our clinically-trained seating specialists will chat to you about how the chair will be used and for how long, where it will be used, and how you will be transferred in and out of the chair. They’ll also note your health condition and personal needs, and take measurements of the premises – all to ensure that the best possible specialist seating solution is provided.

Why a seating assessment is important
The right seating can literally transform your life when you are living with reduced mobility, a disability or an ongoing health condition. Get it wrong and the effects of poor posture can seriously exacerbate both your mental and physical health conditions.
By evaluating your individual needs and situation with a free 60-minute seating assessment, we can ensure that we match you with a chair that is going to enhance your posture, comfort, overall wellbeing and general health – for a better quality of life.
When you make the appointment for your assessment, we’ll go through a pre-assessment questionnaire over the phone. It will take around 5 minutes and give us a good picture of what you need and why you need it.
We’ll visit you at home, in hospital or in your care setting to do a full assessment. We’ll bring a selection of specialist seating and accessories that we’ve carefully selected based on your pre-assessment questionnaire. At the end of our visit, we’ll agree with you the most appropriate chair for your needs and follow this recommendation up with a written quotation.
Delivery, set-up and support
Should you go ahead, we will arrange delivery – same day and next day are available depending on stock availability. We’ll deliver at a time to suit you, set-up your equipment and then show you how to use it. Our after sales team will then be on hand to give you support via our careline.

The chair arrived safely and has now taken centre stage in my living room. It is difficult to put into words what this means to myself and my family. It seems along time ago that Francesca from O/T came to assess me but my was it worth the wait. The chair is beyond my expectations. It ticks every box, looks, build, quality and comfort.
Thank you Annabell for all your support in helping identify suitable equipment for my client's complex needs.
The slings and shower chair arrived and I completed my assessment visit today. We assessed him in the Cressy shower sling first and positioned him into the shower chair adapting it accordingly to meet his postural needs. For the first time in months he had a shower, it was a very special moment for him, the carers and for us to see such a great outcome. The opportunity to shower has had a huge impact on his quality of life. We will assess with the other sling when his wheelchair arrives, hopefully the outcome will be just as good.
I have today received the specialist chair for my father. He is delighted with his new chair which has made a huge difference to his quality of life.

I wish to say a very big thank you to you for your help and assistance in this matter. If you had not done as you did, we would probably have had to evacuate our residents. The list for bed repairs I will get to you as soon as I can.
Many thanks for your help in this matter - I don't know what we would have done without you.
