What is it?

The highly adjustable, modular seating system for clients with complex postural and pressure management needs. The SmartSeat Pro is suitable for children and adults of all ages, with a variety of needs in all care environments.

The SmartSeatPro is a highly adjustable, modular seating system for clients with complex postural and pressure management needs. The individual back rest components can be quickly and easily adjusted to ensure that a range of postural asymmetries such as kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis can be fully supported, stabilised and, where possible, corrected from the sacrum to the cervical spine.


Multi adjustable back rest components:

The unique, multi-adjustable back has three upper back-rest components which can be altered in height, depth, angle, offset and rotation, to suit a user’s needs. Each of these upper elements include built-in adjustable wings which can be individually positioned to contour the seat back to the user’s shape.

Adjustable Head and Shoulder Support

Offers a comfortable head position.

Pressure Relief – WaterCell
Technology fitted as standard

Prevention and relief from pressure ulcers.

Tilt-in-Space (TiS)

Full Width, Independently Elevating,
Channel Leg Rest

Elevates to 90° with no gap–eliminating the risk of entrapment. Channels as standard to help keep the
legs in a comfortable and safe position. Slight negative angle when closed aids easy standing.

Product Testing

When we develop a new chair, we carry out extensive user trials to ensure it works safely, easily and logically. Our chairs are also tested by an internationally recognised test house for strength, stability and durability.

The CareFlex Testing Process:

Stage 1

The testing starts as soon as the chair is taken out of the box. Our User Instructions are
assessed to see how well the chair can be set up and used safely. The chair is checked over
for pinch points and finger traps to safeguard against injury.

Then the heavy stuff starts…

Stage 2

This is a three-part process which involves checking the chair for stability, durability and
resistance to impact.

1. Stability tests check that the chair will not tip over in day-to-day use. The chair is tested
under extreme conditions, such as with the legrest fully elevated and the back fully tilted
or reclined before maximum user weight loads are applied.

The chair must remain stable throughout these tests.

2. Durability tests replicate years of constant use. They help to measure what effect fatigue can
have on the structure and operation of the chair. Because specific standards relate to use in
different environments, for example high wear areas such as nursing homes, the testing
machine applies up to 200,000 maximum user weight loading cycles to the seat and back.

3. Resistance tests focus on the structure of the chair. Each chair is tested for strength, the
ability to resist impact and extreme exerted forces to the arms, seat, legrest and back.

In addition to strength, stability and durability tests, the components and materials used in our
chairs are monitored so that they comply with the relevant standards for fire retardancy,
biocompatibility and safety requirements for electrical components used in medical devices.

Once our chairs have passed these tests, we can be confident that with the right care and
maintenance they will provide years of trouble-free service.

Bathing Cradle Review

Hi Andrew

We have had a really exciting day today: our pupil has tried the Shower Cradle in the pool and it is absolutely amazing!! We set it up this morning with the rolls and headrest ect and the pupil has just been in the water independently for the first time with the TA beside and not needing to hold on to support at all.

we have shown it to lots of staff and will now start assessing other pupils to see how many more would benefit from using the cradle. it is so adaptable with the adjustable mesh/tilt feature and the different loops to hoist it into the water and it will make such a difference to our less mobile pupils.

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”
