John works with Occupational Therapists regularly, where a knowledge and understanding of the importance of correct seating is so important in order to provide a better life for our clients.
I am the younger brother of John and I am also a trained seating specialist. I began with the servicing and repairing of equipment, where I became more interested in patient comfort, postural support and pressure care management.
With intense training and research from the Seating Matters team, it really helped prepare me to support Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapist or assess the patient independently.
Having seen at first hand the difference a suitable chair can make to someone’s life makes it the most enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Importance of Seating: Posture can kill.
Studies have shown that poor posture can have a number of negative impacts on a persons life. Poor posture can effect the respiratory system, swallow of food/medicines, reduce the oxygen levels in the blood and continue recurring of kidney infections.
Good posture positioning will improve the quality of life for people with long term disabilities, hence we are committed to providing seating solutions in order to help provide this high quality.
