Custom Wheelchair Seats
Momentum Healthcare are committed to providing seating systems and wheelchairs that help wheelchair users achieve the highest degree of health, mobility, comfort, and independence as possible.
Momentum Healthcare partnered with Ride Designs in Colorado and are delighted to join a growing number of people who trust and advocate for their innovative moulded seating system. The Ride Custom System offers superior skin and postural care in a comfortable, lightweight and simple design. A fast, clean, intuitive and accurate process allows shapes to be rapidly scanned, then sent, along with photos and order information, through the secure, encrypted iOS app.
Ride seating systems are now recognized internationally for their ability to manage the broadest range of seating issues, from simple to complex. Ride Designs have a proven track record and are a firm favourite with therapists in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway and Portugal. They continue to improve and evolve and are now used by thousands of satisfied customers.
Momentum Healthcare are working in conjunction with Sharon Sutherland an Independent Physiotherapist and founder of Seating Solutions LLC. Sharon is very familiar with the Ride Designs story and has previously worked with its founder Tom Hetzel when they both worked in Jay.
Sharon hardly needs much introduction to the Irish physiotherapist or occupational therapist. But just to those who may not be familiar with her experience or qualifications let us elaborate with her bio, which will never capture her passion for seating and postural care.
It is tangible when you are in the room with her and quite infectious. This is why we have chosen to work with Sharon, she encompasses our values and drive to achieve results for our clients.
Sharon is a physiotherapist who specialises in the field of 24 hour postural care (seating, lying and standing) and mobility since 1988.
She has given over 1000 presentations on positioning and mobility to audiences including physio/physical and occupational therapists, engineers, physicians, attorneys, nurses, government personnel and case managers worldwide.
With a global reputation as a dynamic and highly energetic instructor and hands-on clinician, Sharon is an invited speaker at numerous professional conferences worldwide.
These include conferences such as the International Seating Symposium, European Seating Symposium, Latin American Seating Symposium, PMG, the Nordic Seating Symposium and the Scandinavian Rehab Exhibition.

Peter Carroll has been to the Ride Designs Academy in Colorado and is fully trained up in their seating system. See more about Peter here.
Peter is working in conjunction with Sharon to bring this system to the Irish market and client. In order to facilitate multiple diaries and expenses, we need a minimum of four clients and a full day’s clinic.
Sharon Sutherland attends the clinic at the expense of Momentum Healthcare and is working independently. Sharon will act as the clinician on the day and her focus will be on the seating needs of the client and postural management.
Peter will look after the actual moulding of the client once an optimal position that all have agreed on is achieved.
Booking a Clinic
To book a clinic please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an option of a few dates at least two weeks in advance, that will work for you, and also please confirm that you have four suitable mouldable clients.
