People can have different problems, limitations and needs. Because of this it is definitely not the case that one specific cushion or material can provide the best solution for everyone. The SMS Seating Advice system is extremely helpful here. It comprises hardware and a software component. The attending or referring physician or adviser is led step by step through the optimization process by a computer program that informs the user, clearly and simply, about the various actions that have to be carried out.
The SMS Seating Advice begins with the optimization of the sitting posture by measuring the current posture and comparing the results with the values that constitute an anatomically sound sitting posture. The pressure distribution of the current seating support is measured and stored as specific index ciphers that are calculated by the analysis software. On the screen, these index ciphers can be readily compared to the index ciphers from new measurements taken using other forms of support. In this way it is possible to judge objectively whether any improvement has been achieved or not.

By trying various seat and backrest supports for the person in question, measurements can be taken to show which seat and backrest supports provide optimal seating quality for that person. The data and the observations are entered into the system on the spot. The system is easy to use as the screens show very clearly where which data has to be entered. The program uses the data to generate a report on the results automatically.
