The Bambach saddle seat was designed by an Australian Occupational Therapist as a result of her observations following years spent working with "Riding for the Disabled".
She found that disabled individuals suffering from neurological conditions such as CP often had great difficulty in maintaining a healthy posture and assumed a "collapsed" or "slouched" posture when seated in a conventional wheelchair and required considerable support (or strapping) to remain sitting.
These same individuals when sat on horseback were however capable of sitting independently and unsupported and showed remarkably improved functional abilities as a result of being put on a horse on a saddle.
These observations over time led to the development of the Bambach Saddle Seat which has since been used by Health Professionals as a therapeutic tool in the management of numerous neurological conditions as a means of increasing independence, optimizing quality of life and preventing the onset of further complications associated with those conditions.
Prices From €595, depends on complexity of supports required.
