Changing the Shape of Custom Seating

NUTEC custom configured seating is for patients that need high levels of positioning support, but would also benefit from adjustability, modular growth potential, and the flexibility to add a wide range of accessories. The configured system easily supports communication devices and can be fitted with functional or positioning trays in different materials to suit activities of all types. The seat or back can even be personalized with an embroidered name or image. The innovative modular design accommodates growth through the exchange or adjustment of various components. The seating system itself can be easily removed from the mobility base for transporting or for mounting onto another base. NUTEC seating’s adjustability and customization make it the perfect solution for kids or adults with unique positioning and seating requirements. NUTEC seating components are ordered and individually fabricated to perfectly match every patient—adult or child—and their size and support needs.
