Introducing the Custom Home Chair: Redefining Comfort and Postural Support for All Ages

Finding solace at home or in specialised care settings can be challenging, especially for those reliant on wheelchairs. The Custom Home Chair emerges as a pioneering solution, offering an alternative to conventional wheelchair seating and providing clients with unparalleled postural support for a truly relaxing indoor experience.

The Custom Home Chair seamlessly evolves from the innovative foundation laid by the P’Pod, creating a natural progression in adaptive seating solutions. Building upon the success of the P’Pod's beanbag seating system with full postural support, the Custom Home Chair extends that commitment to comfort and postural alignment into the home environment.

Each Custom Home Chair is meticulously moulded to the user's unique body shape, featuring robust and long-lasting MSI (Moulded Seat Insert) technology to accommodate severe and complex postural needs across various age groups. Recognising the dynamic nature of the human body, the design allows for seamless remoulds, ensuring continued comfort as users' body shapes evolve.

Key Features:

  • Remote Operated Tilt-in-Space Facility: Ideal for extended periods of sitting, the chair's tilt-in-space feature, operable by the user or caregiver, enhances comfort and promotes overall well-being.
  • Versatility for All Ages: Tailored for both children and adults, the Custom Home Chair seamlessly transitions from home to classroom to care facilities.
  • Custom Moulding for Comfort and Support: Crafted from low-density foam for optimal comfort, with a supportive plastic outer shell, the chair ensures both relaxation and postural stability.
  • Removable Covers for Easy Cleaning: Available in a spectrum of colours and fabrics, the removable covers facilitate hassle-free cleaning, maintaining a hygienic and personalised environment.
  • Hoist Compatibility: With front and back locking castors, the Custom Home Chair integrates seamlessly with hoisting systems, ensuring accessibility and ease of use.
  • Angle Adjustability: Tailor the chair to individual needs with a range of angle settings, adapting to various postural requirements.
  • Integrated or Separate Headrest Options: Choose between an integrated headrest or a fully trackable headrest, offering height, depth, and angle adjustability for personalised comfort.
  • Range of Accessories: Explore additional customisation with a selection of harnesses, footrests, and headrests, catering to diverse needs.
  • Gel Inlays for Pressure Damage Prevention: For individuals at risk of pressure damage, gel inlays provide an additional layer of comfort and protection.
  • Harness Compatibility with Poziform Range: Seamlessly integrate with the Poziform range of harnesses for enhanced safety and security.
  • For occupational therapists and physiotherapists, the Custom Home Chair represents a transformative tool in their toolkit. The chair's customisable features, such as the remote-operated tilt-in-space facility and adjustable angles, empower therapists to fine-tune seating solutions according to each client's unique postural needs. The ability to integrate hoisting systems seamlessly enhances the efficiency of transfers, providing therapists with a user-friendly solution that streamlines their daily routines.

With the chair's versatile applications across various settings, including classrooms and care facilities, therapists gain a portable and adaptable solution to meet the evolving needs of their clients. The gel inlays, designed for individuals at risk of pressure damage, underscore the chair's commitment to holistic care, addressing not only comfort but also health considerations.

As therapists witness the positive impact of the Custom Home Chair on their clients' daily lives, it becomes an essential element in their therapeutic arsenal. The chair's compatibility with a range of accessories, including harnesses and headrests, ensures therapists can tailor interventions with precision, facilitating targeted therapeutic goals. Ultimately, the Custom Home Chair is a game-changer for therapists, offering a dynamic and comprehensive approach to seated support that significantly enhances their effectiveness in providing personalised care and elevating the quality of life for those they serve.

Just as the P’Pod revolutionised comfort for children with complex needs, the Custom Home Chair takes this concept to the next level by providing a sophisticated seating option for both children and adults within the confines of their homes and classrooms. The P’Pod's emphasis on comprehensive postural support finds continuity in the Custom Home Chair, which is individually moulded to suit the unique body shape of each user.
