Our rich experience in seating which we design over 300 cases a year,
made it possible for us all to have a very comfortable seating environment.
The process of making p!nto mold seat, our therapists feel individual bodies with our hands to find the equilibrium, the most comfortable alignment, which flow with gravity, and the best positions for the individual cushion makings. The detailed process is based on Kinematics, Anatomy, Occupational therapy, Ecological psychology and the Feldenkrais Method. We, then, collect the data above to the cutting edge scanner technology. We believe seat cushions are meant to offer comfort and relief.
“ETHREEM” that allow us to sit back properly, however we moved.
You feel as though you are “wearing” them when you sit on our “p!nto” products. This is because the supporters inside the cushions align your ribs, pelvis and thighs on the most comfortable position to sit. (ETHREEM) We are actually moving while sitting. So it is important for us to have something to suppress wobbling of our cores. That makes us to have efficiency in what we do while sitting. "p!nto" products are nothing like braces for your teeth. They are more of a platform for a good posture habit. Better posture enable to have efficient movements. You can reach out each direction. “p!nto” is the place which you can go back to the starting position to have realigned posture for your next move.
Just place Mold seat on your wheelchair.
You will be amazed how well you can keep better posture.
No adjustment, transform your slouching habit to the better,
and scatter the pressure points on the seat surface.

With Mold Seat
The design based on the knowledges of wheelchair users, their wheelchairs and their bodies
The seat deflection
The wheelchair canvases sag in time as we sit.
Mold Seat is designed to fit the sitting position in the wheelchair, taking the seat deflection into consideration.
Our unique technique made it possible for the cushion seat thickness of 2 cm below the knees which is the most comfortable and stable thickness to sit. The pelvis stays evenly even if you use your feet to move your wheelchair forward. It is also designed for you to use on the high back wheelchair and reclining wheelchair.
Detachable bottom plate & Anchor support
We also offer Detachable bottom plate & Anchor support for more stability. The seat surface inclines gently so that provides efficiency and stability, which encourages you to have daily activities in front of you. Detachable bottom plate can be used for straightening the fabric. There is a pocket for the bottom plate on the back of the seat.
Comfortable and functional good posture habit.
The movements have great impact on postures. Having better posture allows you to do more things which you once thought it was impossible. Take an example of travelling in a car; you thought having constant vibration is really tiring, but if you can keep yourself in the comfortable posture, that vibration could change your perception of the car ride to be an exciting experience. Transferring to your wheelchair can motivate you for whole day. The same old activities can bring you new joy. We hope you can take Mold Seat wherever you go, and explore “new” rich experiences.
Mold Seat for anyone, anytime
You can use it on the wheelchairs with higher backrest and tilted wheelchairs.
The cushion with back and seat combined means better support around your hip and back.
With ETHREEM technique, it makes it possible to maintain posture so that we can move wheelchairs with our feet.
