Bambach Bambino

(Shown with optional backrest)

Order code: CHD

Following consultation with therapists and several years of using Bambach products with children with special needs, we have found that using a Bambach from as early an age as possible brings about the best results. The Bambino is the smallest member of the Bambach family and is designed to provide the postural benefits of the Bambach to children as young as 2 years old. It can also be used by older children who are smaller in stature or who have a narrower frame.

Key features

  • Compact saddle profile
  • Ensures a healthy posture in school or home environment
  • Easy clean black vinyl covering with distinctive gold front and rear
  • Available with an adjustable height stem or gas lift options
  • Manually adjusted tilt mechanism (-5° - +15°)
  • Black star base (457mm footprint)
  • Locking castors

Optional extras

  • Back rest
  • Fixed lap belt
  • Trunk harness
  • Height locking bracket
  • Removable tilt handle
  • Standard soft castors
  • Locking when loaded castors
  • Locking when unloaded castors
  • Glides

Standard Bambach

Order code: BAM 1SN

The standard Bambach Saddle Seat is suitable for schoolchildren from the age of 4 or 5 depending on growth and can be used by that same child through their school years and onwards into adulthood. The Bambach ensures healthy spinal posture by maintaining and supporting the pelvis in an upright neutral position. The standard Bambach, like all of the Bambach seats comes with an optional backrest and lap belt depending the individual’s needs. All Bambach seats come with an appropriate height gas lift and a star base with locking castors to suit the user environment and the particular needs of the user.

Key features

  • Ensures a healthy posture in school, home or work environment
  • Easy clean vinyl covering in a choice of colours
  • Available with an adjustable height stem or gas lift options
  • Manually adjusted tilt mechanism (-5° - +15°)
  • Black Swedish aluminium star base (558mm footprint)
  • Locking castors

Cutaway Bambach

Order code: BCS

Like the standard Bambach Saddle Seat, the cutaway encourages a healthy sitting posture with all the benefits that go along with having the pelvis and spine in a neutral position. The Cutaway differs however in the fact that the front pommel is slightly narrower. This means that the user has their knees slightly closer together with less abduction of the hips. This is particularly useful for children with a narrower pelvis or more commonly for the child with muscle tightness of the adductor muscles of the inner thigh, which is a common neurological symptom (in particular in children with Spastic Diplegia CP), and may limit the child’s ability to straddle the standard Bambach.

Key features

  • Like the standard Bambach but with a narrower pommel at the front
  • Suitable for children with a narrower pelvis and limited hip abduction
  • Easy clean vinyl covering in a choice of colours
  • Available with an adjustable height stem or gas lift options
  • Manually adjusted tilt mechanism (-5° - +15°)
  • Black Swedish aluminium star base (558mm footprint)
  • Locking castors

Optional extras

  • Back rest
  • Fixed lap belt
  • Trunk harness
  • Height locking bracket
  • Removable tilt handle
  • Standard soft castors
  • Locking when loaded castors
  • Locking when unloaded castors
  • Glides

Executive Bambach

Order code: EXE

The Executive Bambach is the largest of the Bambach family. Suitable for either a larger framed user or for a younger child who requires a greater sitting surface, the Bambach Executive ensures that the users are sitting comfortably in a healthy upright posture but are also safe and secure and fully supported.

  • Ensures a healthy posture in school, home or work environment
  • Easy clean vinyl covering in a choice of colours

Adjustable height footplate

Order code: AFP

There are often situations when a child will be required to use a stool or sit at a higher work surface. This may be in the home to sit at the dining table for family meals, or in the school environment when participating in lessons such as science, design technology etc., using work benches. For this reason, Bambach have developed an adjustable height footplate. The footplate is fully adjustable in height and can also be rotated 180 degrees to the rear when not required and the seat used as normal. The adjustable height footplate comes with an oversized star base to ensure stability of the seat when using the footplate.

Key features

  • Can be fitted to Bambino, Standard and Cutaway seats with gas lift stems (FGL1-4)
  • Larger 5 star base for greater stability (700mm footprint)
  • Textured non-slip top surface
  • Graduated guide for ease of re-positioning
  • Can be rotated 180 degrees when not needed
  • All locking castors

LEFT: This image shows the graduated guide located at rear of the gas lift.

RIGHT: The footplate in store mode – Rotated to the rear allowing the user to have their feet on the floor.

Fixed height footplate

Order code: FP (single), FT (twin)

Fixed footplates can be fitted to the star base when a child has a slight issue with seat height. These can be built up depending upon the individual needs of the child. A single footplate can also be fitted and is particularly beneficial for users with a leg length discrepancy. A single footplate can also be used to encourage active use of a weaker limb which is common in individuals with Hemiplegia. The base can also be rotated to ensure that the footplates are at the rear when not required.

Key features

  • Available for left foot, right foot or both feet
  • Strong 15mm Birch plywood construction
  • Textured non-slip top surface
  • Stylish footplate profile
  • Can be rotated to rear of seat when not needed
  • The height profile can be raised by fitting additional rests
  • Glides

Before using a Bambach

Dr Thyne has had back problems, with sciatic pain, which eventually resulted in restrictions to his lifestyle: “Going on holidays, by the time I had packed the car I could not pick up and hold my children”. Dr Thyne knew that he had to consider his situation as serious, so he undertook a program of exercise and physiotherapy which, along with his engagement in his sport of rowing, have become part of his regime for managing his symptoms.


Another part of the scheme is the Bambach Saddle Seat. He had been told about the Bambach Saddle Seat by a fellow surgeon who had seen it while attending a conference in Cairns, Australia and had subsequently bought one for his surgery. Dr Thyne decided to try the Bambach Saddle Seat himself.

 

After using a Bambach

Dr Thyne experienced a marked improvement in symptoms as a result of a regime of exercise, lifestyle changes and a heightened consciousness of good biomechanics of which the Bambach Saddle Seat is a part. “The Saddle Seat is good for my posture when operating and for my general postural awareness. As it is not an ordinary seat, it reminds you to be aware of your posture”. Before using the Bambach Saddle Seat, Dr Thyne did all of his surgery standing; Now he remains seated 30% of the time.

Before using a Bambach

Helen treats children and young adults who have dento-facial abnormalities. The problems range from moderate disfigurement up to those who have marked congenital deformities like Apert’s Syndrome, Hemifacial Microsomia and various forms of Cleft Lip and Palate. She sees patients to advise their General Dental Practitioners about treatment for simpler cases, as well as providing treatment in the hospital unit for the more difficult ones. Her clinic is held daily and she is seated for both diagnosis and treatment.


Helen saw The Bambach an orthodontic conference and decided to try it out. “Back pain is one of the recognised problems with working with patient’s supine in a dental chair, and prevention is better than cure! An Additional factor is that I have two horses which I ride regularly and so I am used to sitting in a saddle.

 

After using a Bambach

“I have never had any trouble with my back and enjoy using the Bambach. I feel uncomfortable when I have to work in a surgery with conventional seats. The Bambach seat is well made, comfortable and has been in daily use for over a decade and still looks smart. If anything ever went wrong with it, I would immediately buy another one”.

Before using a Bambach

Diane had neck pain resulting from work. When asked by her dentist employer to sit on a Bambach Saddle Seat (which was already in use in the surgery) she discussed the idea with her Osteopath, who said that it was a good idea.

 

After using a Bambach

Diane was instructed how to adjust the tilt and height of the seat and how to assume the best posture for work. After she became used to the new position, Diane found the Saddle Seat beneficial. Her neck did not hurt even after a whole day’s work when using the Bambach Saddle Seat. Diane said: “I like the way your legs are with your feet on the floor; it is a comfortable way to sit, but you have to get used to it.”
