On the Czech market, there are wheelchair seats available in various materials and combinations. However, in my daily practice, I lack a seat that could be shaped individually for each user and provide the required correction of the pelvis and thus the proper spine position, especially for users with muscular lateral imbalances. I can customize the Libella Seat Varia to the user's exact needs and then reconfigure it at any time.

Libella Seat Varia made my life in a wheelchair very easy. As the biggest benefit, I see the anti-decubitus feature; compared to other seats, I appreciate the light weight and tailor-made adjustment with regard to the client's problems.

The Libella Seat Varia is a breathable, lightweight, and very good looking wheelchair seat that has provided me with a better upright seating posture. I ordered my previous seat online for a price comparable to the Libella Seat Varia, hoping it would be helpful for me. Unfortunately, it was non-breathable, its cover took a long time to dry, and I had to support it with towels due to my asymmetric seating posture. For the price/performance ratio, I am excited about my new seat. I also appreciate the helpful and professional attitude of the company's staff.

What a sitting with Libella Seat Varia! I've been dealing with sitting posture correction all my life and I've always needed extra wedges to support the seat. Finally, Libella Seat Varia is assembled specifically for my body needs. It has reduced my body pain, I don't roll to the side and there is no tightness. A huge thank you to everyone at Libella for their precise work and friendly yet professional approach. Obviously, they genuinely cared about my wellbeing.

spastic quadriparesis
in a wheelchair since 2004

I have been in a wheelchair since birth and have severe scoliosis. I liked the unique way the whole seat was made and soon I was taking away my own made-to-measure seat. The beginning was not easy as the Libella Seat Varia started to straighten me out, it wasn't pain-free but it is worth persevering. The spine, muscles and internal organs started moving and the process took about a month. Then the lymph, heart and lungs started to function much better. My breathing and my mental state improved. Even though I wanted to give up the "straightening" process because of the initial discomfort, I am so glad I endured it because we, as wheelchair users, need a good seat to improve our quality of life. Sitting on the Libella is just great and I can definitely recommend it.

I would recommend the Libella Seat Varia to those who are at high risk of pressure ulcers. It has lowered the incidence of bruises and redness in my sitting area. I have benefited from better stability and last but not least, it's light and very easy to handle when unfolding the wheelchair into the car.

Sitting on the Libella Seat Varia, you will never want to get down again. Being a full-time employee, good sitting is very important to me. Because of all the circumstances of my injury, I am very sensitive to "sitting area" pressure ulcers. Libella customized the seat to my sitting position, so my buttocks don't burn, I sit straighter overall, and it resulted in a more "comfortable" wheelchair life. The excellent approach of the ergo-therapist Veronika Liďáková made me feel very comfortable while measuring and adjusting the seat. The whole workplace exuded professionalism and concern.

With the Libella Seat Varia, I am not afraid to be in a wheelchair for long hours. Compared to the previous seat, I sit more freely on it and experience less lumbar and cervical spine pain. It is breathable and more comfortable in hot weather. The transfer from a wheelchair to a bed is also much easier.

Although I thought that some things could not be affected by the seat, I appreciated that due to the individual approach and feedback on the potential pressure increase in a particular spot due to pressure mapping, it was possible to adjust the sitting posture. Thanks to the Libella, my trunk is not rotated and both shoulders are at the same height. This also relieves the long-term overstressed muscles around the scapula.

Without hesitation, I would recommend the Libella Seat Varia because I appreciate having a seat made individually based on my needs. The whole adjusting and testing process was professional, and most importantly, pleasant. Everything was clearly demonstrated and consulted in a welcoming and completely wheelchair-accessible environment. For example, the lifter was a great help. As a result, I got a great custom-made seat that is both breathable and easy to maintain.

With the Libella Seat Varia, I can sit longer in the wheelchair, my buttocks do not hurt, I have a stable seat and my spasticity has been reduced.

We perceive the individual solution and the possibility of testing the Libella Seat Varia as the greatest benefit. Since our son does not communicate and cannot share his feelings, working with an occupational therapist and a pressure mapping tool when creating the seat is a huge benefit for us. The main reason for the purchase was pressure ulcers and thanks to Libella there is a huge improvement. The Libella Seat Varia is certainly an excellent investment, we have tried a lot in twenty years and this is the first time we have encountered such a system, the individualization and variability of the system are perfect.

The Libella Seat Varia has been working great for me and I would like to express my gratitude to the whole Libella design team for their professional and above-standard approach to assembling an individual wheelchair seat. I can sit in my wheelchair for longer times and I am more upright. It has balanced out the difference between my atrophied limbs and, with a much better weight spread, now allows me to breathe more freely than when I was previously sitting completely crooked. Some of the back pain and nerve pinching in my limbs have been relieved and are less frequent, so I can be more active during the day and can be more independent in both life and movement.
