Ride Designs Custom Seating
Ride Custom Cushions and Backrests provide exacting support for the widest range of needs — it is the better solution for those considering traditional custom wheelchair seating and also an ideal match for the growing and active user. Ride Designs believe in wheelchair seating systems that work in tandem, not just seating components. They are committed to creating and providing seating systems that enhance the user’s mobility, function and posture — all while protecting the skin better than anything they may have used in the past.
The shape capture process allows the cushion and backrest to be made to fit virtually any size and contour. The RideWorks scanning technology allows for custom moulds to be taken and ordered much quicker than traditional custom seating options. The Ride technology also allows for custom seating to be much smaller in depth, eliminating the chunky seating commonly associated with custom seating. Our GTK Consultants are Ride Certified, having completed Ride Design’s comprehensive wheelchair seating class to be able to prescribe Ride’s custom cushions and backrests.
Supports individual contours
The Custom Backrest and cushion support the unique contours of the user’s body to provide accurate supportive contact.
Offers lightweight strength
A thin profile and lightweight design have little or no impact on wheelchair seat depth, width, or performance, making the Custom Back appropriate even for active users. Weighing in at about 800g for an average 16 x 16″ size, the Custom Cushion is a fraction of the weight of other cushions.
Aids in protection and comfort
Supplementary padding and relief options improve protection and comfort at sensitive areas and also enhance the overall performance.
Backrest Adjusts Easily
The infinitely adjustable FlexLoc mounting system allows backrest adjustment in every axis of movement ensuring optimal balance and postural control. Height, depth, angle, and rotation can all be adjusted independently. Mounting hardware is available in fixed or quick release styles.
Grows along with the user
The Ride Custom Back and cushion can be modified for linear growth and weight change at a fraction of the cost of new seating.
Spacer fabric or wipeable, incontinence-proof covers are available.
