Manufacturer's description

The 'P' Pod has been designed and developed by SOS as a simple yet effective postural support for use by disabled children when indoors in the home or day care environment, the unique patented design of the 'P' Pod combines a symmetrical or custom moulded support within the simplicity of a conventional Bean Bag base.

Integration of specialised equipment into the home environment can be difficult due to limitations on space and access issues, the 'P' Pod Seat from SOS gives high levels of postural support and accommodation for easy use around the home environment.

The 'P' Pod are available in two options to suit the individual client needs:

These standard 'P' Pods can be supplied in six different sizes, which all of them are CE marked and are ideal for clients who would normally use Modular Seating rather than Custom Moulded Seating.

Custom 'P' Pods are ideal for clients who need that extra support and require a more defined shape due to their disability. Custom 'P' Pods are moulded to the shape of the client in the same way as our "Custom Moulded Seats"

Help and advice

This type of furniture can be comtemporary and fun. It provides a more informal option to more supported seating for short periods. With a suitable frame, it combines postural seating with the flexibility of a bean bag.

For a person with spinal deformities or contractures this style of seating would not be recommended for long periods of time. However, this equipment could be part of a combination of types of seating used within a day.

When considering a chair an individual assessment with an occupational therapist or physiotherapist may be appropriate. These chairs are usually demonstrated from the specific company and an ccupational therapist or physiotherapist may be able to attend the visit. Your safety is important and there may be individual and environmental factors which determine which chair best suits your needs in the short and longer term. The information on this site is not a substitute for individual assessment.
