Why Bodypoint?

"At Bodypoint, we work every day to better understand the capabilities and aspirations of people who use wheelchairs. As we imagine, design and manufacture our products, we strive to bridge the gap between the hard and the soft, the inanimate and the living, to create a better connection between wheelchairs and people."

- David Hintzman
  Bodypoint Co-founder

In 1991, founders David Hintzman and Matthew Kosh brought together their common industry experience, original product designs and shared desire for a more serious approach to wheelchair seating accessories.

Their plan was to provide well-crafted, highly-functional postural supports for people who use wheelchairs. Recognizing the close physical connection between a wheelchair and its user, the name "Bodypoint" suggests solutions for very specific needs at different points on the body. These solutions provide greater safety, comfort and function for our users.
