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.

Key features

  • The largest of the Bambach seats
  • The greater seat area provides postural support for the larger user
  • 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)

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.

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

Testimonials

 

 

“Thank you for the free trial of the Bambach Saddle Seat. It has taken some time (and a few accidents) to adapt to using it , but now I find it most comfortable. Without the trial I would not have considered purchasing the seat. I was unconvinced of the benefits of using the Bambach. I am now convinced and find conventional seating allows poor posture to creep in again. The second seat is for my nurse and she has also found the seat improves her posture.”
Kenneth Jones, Stonehaven


“Enclosed please find a cheque in respect of the Saddle Seat which has been a revelation. I am recommending it to all my colleagues. Many thanks.”
Vernon Crooks, Wolsingham


“I am writing further to having met you at the Dental Showcase to thank you and your company for the Bambach Saddle Seat. I have had one for eight years (it only feels like three!) I used to suffer with frequent bouts of back pain, and had to have time off work at least once a year. I used to see a chiropractor or osteopath regularly. Now obviously The Bambach Saddle Seat could not cure the back problem, but since I started to use it all the time the frequency of my back pain and of visits to the osteopath reduced. In fact I have not had to see the osteopath for about five years. I have less aches and pains at the end of the day and consequently feel less tired. The seat has been a “real lifesaver” to me. I have had no problems with it at all. The castors have only just worn out and I have just fitted the replacements. I consider the Bambach to be one of the best investments I have ever made and would recommend it unhesitatingly to any dentist who suffers with back pain. Thank you for a superb product.”
Dee Sircar, Doncaster


“Having ignored minor back pain for six months, my back finally gave way with a vengeance in January. After time off work and becoming very close friends with the physiotherapist I did what I should have done years ago and contacted you. I cannot praise your seat too highly, without it I would not be working full time without any back pain. Many thanks.”
Carolyn Campbell, Ponteland


“I cannot do without my Bambach Saddle Seat. My Backache comes back only after a few days without it.”
Samuel Wong, Stalybridge


“The seat has completely eliminated the lower back ache I was suffering. As well as this‚ I am really enjoying how it helps me to maintain a better posture.”
Kim Uildriks‚ The Computer Health Institute.


“The Saddle Seat works very well for me when I am painting. No longer do I have to raise the easel up and down as the seat has a great range of height control.”

Pro Hart‚ Artist

“I have suffered with a bad back for three years and frequently had time off work to cope with my injury. As I sit for the majority of the day‚ I have found your ‘saddle chair seat” invaluable.
