Here at Specialised Orthotic Services (SOS) we are dedicated to providing a service that is second-to-none for special seating needs.
We put our customers and clients at the heart of everything we do.
We know that posture is incredibly important. With effective early intervention and continual clinical follow up, postural management is improved to make a real difference to our end user’s lives both their health outcomes and their well-being.
We know through research that proper positioning and alignment is essential in order to:
- Normalise and decrease abnormal neurological influence on the body
- Maintain proper skeletal alignment
- Manage pressure
- Enable limb movement and functional use
- Facilitate normal movement patterns
- Reduce fatigue
- Enhance autonomic nervous system functions such as breathing, swallowing, digestion and cardiac function.
24-hour postural management is vital to help prevent and manage complications such as contracture, structural changes of the hip and spine, breathing and digestive difficulties.
Our vision is to provide the best possible innovative special seating system, and other rehabilitation products, coupled with a quality service to our clients no matter how complex their disabilities.
We achieve this by working closely with individuals, clinicians and carers to design products which deliver practical solutions ensuring that end user’s needs are met to help them better face their daily challenges.
