Bambach Bambino

(Shown with optional backrest)

Order code: CHD

It can also be used by older children who are smaller in stature or who have a narrower frame.

  • 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

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

Optional extras

  • Back rest
  • Fixed lap belt

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)
  • Locking castors

Optional extras

  • Back rest

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

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

How the Bambach will help your lower back pain

 

 

 

Taking steps to relieve lower back pain

Lower back pain can make life a misery. But what most people don’t realise, is that partial or total relief from back pain is a simple matter of changing the way they sit. That’s because the way most of us sit is very bad for the body, especially if we sit for long periods!


Why flat seats cause backache

The reason that ordinary ‘flat’ seats are bad for your body is very well documented. You can read an explanation of this, together with the medical and scientific evidence here, but basically it’s to do with the shape of the spine. A conventional seat forces your body away from its natural ‘S’ shape and into an unnatural ‘C’ shape – a shape that causes a wide range of problems, including lower back pain.

 

Correct and incorrect sitting positions

 

8 reasons why the Bambach Saddle Seat can help lower back pain

When you sit on a Bambach Saddle Seat, your spine stays in a healthy ‘S’ shape at all times. This will benefit your body in many ways, including the reduction, or elimination, of lower back ache. The Bambach achieves this because:

 

1: The Bambach maintains a healthy spine shape

With a conventional seat, the pelvis and hips are at 90o to each other, and the pelvis tends to rock back and forth. It’s your pelvis that supports your spine, so as soon as you sit on a conventional seat, your spine is no longer supported. When you sit on a Bambach, your hips are at an angle of 45o, allowing your pelvis to stay in its natural position, helping the spine to stay in its neutral upright 'S' shape. This reduces the risk of the development of posture-related lower back pain.

 

2: The Bambach minimises muscle fatigue

On an ordinary flat seat, the supporting base (the ischial tuberosities) is behind the upper body, encouraging a slumped 'C' shaped spinal posture. When sitting on the Saddle Seat, however, the body’s centre of gravity is directly over the supporting base, just as in standing. The result is that muscle fatigue due to bad posture is minimised.

 

3: The Bambach reduces pressure on your discs

Sitting on a Bambach reduces inter-vertebral disc pressure, which minimises degeneration and reduces the risk of herniation. Pain from trauma to the lumbar spine is also minimised.

 

4: The Bambach reduces nerve root compression

Sitting on a Bambach ensures a healthy upright spinal posture, reducing the risk of nerve root compression or pinching.

 

5: The Bambach reduces the risk of spinal deformity

A healthy ‘S’ shape of the spine helps to activate the muscles that provide postural control, allowing the development of a symmetrical posture, thus reducing the risk of spinal deformity and further musculoskeletal problems.

 

6: The Bambach makes motor activity easier

By making sitting and other motor activities easier, the Bambach can increase seated work from zero to normal for an individual suffering from lower back pain.

 

7: The Bambach improves blood circulation

The Bambach improves lung and internal organ function and circulation by maximising the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic spaces.

 

8: The Bambach makes it difficult to slouch

Sitting on a Bambach encourages a correct (healthy) posture; sitting on a flat seat encourages postural collapse.
