SEATING SYSTEMS

by Fumagalli

When we consider “aids for a sitting posture” we must first think about the sitting posture itself as well as postural systems. There are essentially two reasons for this: first, children with physical disabilities spend most of the time, if not the whole day, in a sitting posture – it is often the only posture where they can carry out functional activities. Secondly, a sitting posture maintained for long time, without the common postural adjustments made by non-disabled people, can be inconvenient, uncomfortable, generate pain and cause significant secondary damage (pressure sores, muscle-tendon retraction etc.).*

* From “The Posture Manual: development age: rehabilitation approach and day life”.

About Fumagalli

Happlebox is the exclusive distributor for UK and Ireland of Fumagalli's special needs aids and rehabilitation equipment.

Fumagalli – an Italian based company – is in the special needs market since almost the last 40 years. Its mission is the research and development and manufacture of rehabilitation aids and equipment to meet the special needs of people (in particular of children) with severe motor disabilities.

The Person, our values

The design and care for the external appearance of its products is a sign of the interest shown towards other, less tangible but no less significant aspects; interests that meet the demands, expectations and the ``self image`` of the Person for whom the product is intended.

Quality System

The company operates according to ISO 9001-2000 quality system standards in all its divisions, phases and processes. Assessments and tests are particularly strict and severe and are fully managed in-house with the appropriate equipment: load resistance, wear resistance, stability evaluation, checking of the indentation index (for paddings ), verification of material and product contact pressures (with Tek Scan system).

World Group ISO

Today Fumagalli is a member of the WG - World Group ISO - for the research of correct validation methods of anti-decubitus aids. The structured interaction has extended over time to large and well known European companies such as R82, a world leader in aids for children and Handicare (the first company to design and build a tilting posture wheelchair for serious disabilities, imposing on a global level the culture of ``tipping`` to facilitate postural stability). The collaboration goes back to 1985 and this interaction has increased and continues to increase Fumagalli’s competence in these unique and complex areas.
