This type of seating tends to be used for children who cannot attain a stable, comfortable position in off-the-shelf, adjustable seating.
Some systems are made up of interlinking components (modular seating) that can be re-shaped when necessary. Others are permanently moulded into a particular shape. They interface with various static and mobile seat frames and also wheelchair frames.

Moulded seating should only be used on the recommendation of your child's occupational therapist and/or physiotherapist.
These systems will need to be reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet your child's needs and so that any necessary re-shaping can be completed. The health professional involved in the prescription will be able to advise on how often this will be necessary as it varies between children.
