Just want to say thank you again for your presentation. You gave me a lot more insight into that area which I hadn't worked with before. In particular seeing the differences in how we measure up 'plus size' users compared to normal sized was an eye opener

The training and support offered by Accora to clinicians and stores personnel is excellent. This is also backed up by information on an outstanding website which clinicians can utilise for added support.

ICES Manager, South

Many thanks for your extremely useful workshop yesterday. It was so helpful to have an experience of the issues faced by Plus sized service users by wearing the suit and to have your advice about measuring. The new design for the chairs is exciting and we look forward to seeing the standard range coming out with the new specific tilt in space option. We have had positive feedback from everyone that attended and have also been contacted by people who were unable to attend, asking us if we can send them your presentation.

Really enjoyed the training yesterday thank you, it was really well presented and informative


I found this webinar useful and will be passing on the information to my colleagues and encourage them to use this service in the future. I do not require a chair assessment at present, but having the up to date information is very useful.

I found it a great refresher but also an opportunity to catch up on latest changes to products.

It was useful to have examples of what worked and what didn’t and where it can go wrong.
