Amongst the many problems MS can bring, the one which new sufferers often tell us they notice the most is the loss of their independence. This can be as a result of increased fatigue which makes it difficult to carry out even everyday tasks, or due to muscle spasm, spasticity, or tremor (ataxia), which affect the ability to do simple activities previously taken for granted. Fortunately, the Bambach Saddle Seat could provide a solution, relieving some of the symptoms of MS and making it possible for you to be independent again.
Living with MS can force you to make changes in your life and to lose your independence in many areas. Living with the Bambach Saddle Seat can restore your independence, and could help you to lead a life very much like you did before you were affected by MS. For example, an important factor in many problems associated with MS is fatigue. But if you use the Bambach Saddle Seat in your daily life, you’ll find you are less tired, and therefore able to do more. The stability, height and easy manoeuvrability of the Bambach Saddle Seat mean you can use it at times and in places when you might otherwise stand and quickly become tired. So it’s ideal for:
Of course, with MS, even sitting can often be tiring. But again, this can simply be due to the difficulty of maintaining the best posture to keep your muscles relaxed in an ordinary chair. Sit on the Bambach Saddle Seat, on the other hand, at the dining table, or at your desk, and you’ll find you sit better without even trying, and your strength, energy and muscle control will all benefit as a result.
Don’t add unnecessary strains! Using a conventional stool or perching stool to help cope with the symptoms of MS can allow your spine to collapse into an unnatural ‘C’ shape curve, adversely affecting your whole body.
The bambach stabilises your pelvis allowing your spine to stay naturally, effortlessly, upright and ‘S’ shaped. This supported standing position has a knock-on effect of easing tension in your muscles and reducing fatigue and other symptoms of MS.
The most relaxed position for your spine is the natural ‘S’ curve it adopts when you stand up. However, when we sit down on ordinary chairs, most of us slump and let our spine form a ‘C’ shaped curve instead. This might feel easy and comfortable at first, but it soon leads to spinal stress and muscle strain, even for someone without MS. When you suffer from MS, this is just one more stress that your body could do without, and it only increases your fatigue and other muscular related problems. But when you sit on the Bambach Saddle Seat, its shape naturally positions your pelvis so that your spine, in turn, stays in its preferred ‘S’ curve. Which means less stress on your spine, less strain on your muscles and less of the associated difficulties. The Bambach Saddle Seat:
When you are fatigued, you are probably sitting on a conventional stool or even a perching stool. The diagrams above show how your spine quickly deforms into a ’C’ shape producing compression on the thorax and abdomen, restricting the function of the lungs and abdomen and adversely affecting muscles in your neck, limbs and hands, compounding your symptoms of MS. The situation worsens when you lean forward.
The key to the Bambach Saddle Seat’s effectiveness is the way it allows you to sit, completely naturally and comfortably, stabilising the pelvis in a neutral, upright position, resulting in the best possible posture for your spine. EVEN when you’re leaning forward to carry out daily tasks. This then has a knock-on effect in reducing fatigue and easing tension in your muscles, which can help to reduce spasm and spasticity, and calm tremor.
