The client is an amputee and requires a wheeled seat to allow her to continue with her gardening.  The seat cushion needs to be custom shaped to suit the asymmetric amputation and have arms to help her to sit down and stand up.

The shape of the client’s bottom was taken using a bean bag made of a bin liner full of polystyrene beans.  The form of the beanbag was held by drawing a vacuum with an airbed pump while a plaster of paris mould was made.  A GRP seat was made and covered with foam padding and leatherette.
