What is Posture Tech?

Posture Tech is a division of Rocky Bay Equipment that specialises in custom seating and lying supports, such as powered wheelchairs. Working in partnership with you and your therapy specialists, the team will create a chair that is designed and built to your exact requirements for maximum comfort.

I need a new chair. How does it work?

After a referral from your medical professional, a typical process for creating a custom postural support for you looks like this:

  • Initial consultation with your therapist, family or carer and a Posture Tech technician
  • Fitting session. You will be fitted for a support, moulded to your body using advanced technology
  • Manufacture. The Posture Tech team will get to work building your support, using the 3D scan to ensure your comfort
  • Trial period. Take you almost-finished chair home for a week or two to ensure it meets your needs
  • Completion and handover. Our team will make any necessary adjustments, complete the upholstery and add the final touches – like your choice of colours!
