Posture (MAT) Assessments

The MAT (Movement Assessment Tool) is a musculoskeletal examination of a client’s: range of movement, joint flexibility, muscle length and skeletal alignment.

Anatomical measurements are taken and neurological issues such as tone and spasm patterns are observed for their effects on posture, muscle length and function.

The MAT process facilitates the selection of a seating or positioning system with the appropriate size and shape to promote good posture and pressure relief.

Custom Manufacturing (orthoses) Service

Clients requiring a high level of postural support and control are often unable to source an appropriate level of support, comfort and pressure relief in their seating from commercially available products.
