Where it started...

The Matrix concept began as a Canadian research project conducted from 1975 to 1978. The aim was to create a mass producible universal O&P body support system.

"A seating system with dynamic motion has long been considered the utopia for custom molds for many therapeutic benefits. Over the last 40 years Matrix Seating has evolved to meet this unique clinical benefit.”

~ Steve Cousins, PhD, Founder of Matrix Seating Ltd.
