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

Wheelchair positioning is all we do at Bodypoint, for thousands of very important reasons: our users. For 30 years, we’ve created better connections between wheelchairs and people. From shoulders to feet, Bodypoint offers a range of thoughtfully-designed postural supports in sizes to fit both pediatric and adult users.

A strong position may help an individual prevent a pressure ulcer, win a Paralympic medal, or eat a slice of pizza, but for someone in a wheelchair, even the smallest details can make a big difference to improving their mobility and independence.

That’s why we design and manufacture our products in Seattle, Washington for optimal fit, function, durability, comfort and safety. We are the only postural support line known to test to all applicable ISO and ANSI/RESNA standards, and we offer a limited lifetime warranty.

Bodypoint is available in more than 40 countries through our extensive partnership network of US dealers, international distributors, and wheelchair manufacturers.
