Ordering Seating Matters chairs via Medequip couldn’t be easier. Edel Cotter is a Moving & Handling Occupational Therapist in Adult Social Care in Hammersmith & Fulham Council, and has vast experience using Seating Matters chairs through Medequip.
“I would order on average one chair per month via Medequip. It’s like Amazon for Seating. You can easily search for the ‘furniture’ section on the Medequip login and there you find two Seating Matters chairs available from their range. The images are clear to see with all the available accessories, making it quick and easy to select what you need.”

Justifying Specialist Seating
Depending on the particular borough you work in, restrictions may be applied when making purchases over a certain amount. You therefore may be asked to make justifications for your purchases via Medequip and with Seating Matters that is easy.
Our chairs have been thoroughly clinically trialled, tested and proven to provide maximum pressure management when used with The Four Principles of Pressure Management. We conducted a 2 year randomised control trial on the effectiveness of specialist seating provision, providing a solid evidence base to enable you to provide justification for our seating solution. Our chairs are the only high dependency clinical seating solution in the world with this level of robust clinical evidence. Click here to read more about the clinical research project.
Edel Cotter, OT says, “I will have to provide justification for items purchased over £2,000 and the Seating Matters chairs have clinical evidence that proves their use so are easily justifiable. The chairs are very easily adjusted but if I have any queries or need help with setting up the chair for my patient, Sean and the team from Seating Matters are very responsive and at hand to resolve any problems."
Sean Mullan is one of our Seating Specialists based in London and has vast experience working with clinicians who order Seating Matters chairs through Medequip.
“We have partnered with Medequip for a number of years and it is clear to see why clinicians will opt to order our chairs again and again. With our hands-on support before and after a chair is purchased, teamed with speedy delivery, it really makes a difference to the patient’s life and the OT has the peace of mind to know we are at hand if there are any queries or concerns.”
