Bambach Bambino

(Shown with optional backrest)

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

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

The Bambach is the only seat scientifically proven to help you sit comfortably, naturally, upright and stable, relieving and preventing posture related problems!

 

If you do a lot of sitting (and most of us do) you probably won’t believe how much the simple act of sitting is damaging your body. But it is. And there’s a lot of science to prove it. That’s why so many people suffer from back pain, headaches, or problems with their neck, arms, hands or shoulders. You may very well be one of them. If you are, then here’s something else you might find hard to believe: the solution is surprisingly simple. That’s because the solution is a seat. More specifically, it’s the Bambach Saddle Seat.

 

The Bambach Saddle Seat is good for the spine. Very good. In fact, it’s the only seat scientifically proven to reduce and prevent back pain and other posture related problems. Whether you already suffer with these problems, or you want to avoid doing so in the future, you should seriously consider using a Bambach. On this site, we look at what you’ll get from using one of our seats – and why.

 

If you want detailed explanations of what the Bambach can do for you, and how, you’ll find them on this site. We’ll answer questions such as:

 

What’s wrong with the seat you use now?

The short answer is ‘a lot’. That’s because conventional seats force the spine out of its natural, healthy ‘S’ shape, into an unnatural and extremely unhealthy ‘C’ shape. This doesn’t merely result in musculoskeletal problems such as lower back pain, but tends to crush the internal organs, producing a wide range of other problems and even increased cholesterol levels. For a full description of the medical problems that result from sitting on a conventional or flat seat, read our section: The ‘C’-shaped spine - why conventional seats are bad for you.

 

Curing back pain

 

 

How does the Bambach Saddle seat help you sit more healthily?

Basically, the Bambach supports your pelvis in the same position it’s in when you are standing. This ensures that when you sit, your spine is in a natural ‘S’ shape, so you sit easily and effortlessly upright. The result is a dramatic reduction in the likelihood of suffering from back pain, muscular pains, or any posture related problems. To see what lies at the root of the Bambach’s amazing therapeutic effect, read our short Bambach story.

 

What are the benefits of using a Bambach?

The instant you begin using a Bambach, you’ll feel a positive difference. And after a while, you’ll wonder why you ever felt comfortable on your old seat. Users of our ergonomic seating solutions have reported a massive range of benefits, from simple back pain relief to being a life-changing experience. For a full list of the benefits of using the Bambach, read the section: The benefits of sitting on a Bambach.

 

Are the benefits medically proven?

Yes. There is a massive amount of evidence, from research carried out across the world, that most conventional seats cause posture related problems. And the Bambach has been scientifically proven to help reduce or avoid these problems. If you’d like to see proof, watch our brief video: The science behind the Bambach and visit our pages containing research papers.

 

Can you demonstrate that the bambach really works?

Certainly. It takes just a few seconds to see for yourself that the Bambach really works. Why not ask for your free trial and try our simple test? Click here to watch the video.

 

Who can benefit from using a Bambach Saddle Seat?

Anyone who does a lot of sitting, really. And that’s almost everyone. In fact, statistics show that we sit, on average, for nearly 9 hours a day! So it’s no wonder that 80% of adults suffer back pain at some stage in their life. However, some groups of people are at more risk than others of suffering posture-related problems, so we’ve developed Bambachs to meet their specific needs. There is a Bambach for dentists and their team, a Bambach for children with special needs, and a Bambach for back pain, rehabilitation, or adult special needs. There’s also a Bambach for hospitals, industry, office and home.

 

Can the Bambach be customised to my needs?

Absolutely! Our seats offer a wide range of options and extras. Why not see what options are available and even customise your seat online.

 

Can I try it before I buy it?

Yes. We offer a completely FREE trial of our support seats, so you can see for yourself how much you can benefit. Call freephone 0800 581108 and ask for details.

 

Should you stand to work?

Get Britain standing

Many experts suggest that rather than sitting down to do your work, you should stand up so you can avoid the musculoskeletal problems caused by conventional sitting positions.9 When you’re standing, the pelvis is in a neutral position, and your postural muscles help to keep the spine in a natural healthy “S” shape. But, of course, standing to work is not an option for most of us.

 

What’s more, it has long been known that standing all day is not only more tiring, but it dramatically increases the risk of carotid atherosclerosis (by a factor of nine to be precise). That’s because of the additional load that’s put on the circulatory system. It also increases the risk of varicose veins. Clearly, standing is not the solution to the problem.

 

So, what is? Well, there is a solution - The Bambach Saddle Seat! It’s a solution that replicates all the advantages of standing, and puts the spine in its natural ‘S’ shape, without actually making you stand. It’s a seat that’s specially designed to work with, not against, the musculoskeletal system and keep your upper body in a balanced position. Put simply, it stops your body from slumping while you’re sitting. And it’s available for you to try for free! Call 0800 581108 and ask for your free trial.
