Dementia & Alzheimer's

Dementia, the second leading cause of death in Australia, is a degenerative condition that causes a decline in cognitive function. Clinical seating is a key aspect of care that can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life.

Huntington's Disease

Huntington’s is a complex, neurodegenerative disorder that impairs physical, cognitive and psychological functioning. Therapeutic seating can play a pivotal role in managing the comfort, posture and mobility of patients.
