Ride Designs combines clinical expertise and advanced engineering to create products that significantly enhance mobility and comfort.

Mission and Vision

Their vision encompasses a future where all wheelchair users can access seating systems that enhance their health, mobility, and comfort.

Core Principles
Since 1998, Ride Designs’ success stems from the commitment to a core set of principles.

  1. Wheelchair Seating Practice: Ride Designs enhances their products through real interactions with clients, ensuring they continually evolve to meet specific needs.

  2. Seating Theory: Their focus is on complete seating systems rather than individual components, aiming to enhance mobility and comfort while protecting the skin.

  3. Biomechanical Principles: Understanding that everyone's body is unique, Ride Designs tailors their seating solutions to fit individual shapes and support natural body dynamics.

  4. Customer Care: Ride Designs is dedicated to exceptional service, offering personalised care and ensuring their providers are expertly trained to deliver the best seating solutions.

These principles reflect Ride Designs' commitment to innovation and personalised care in developing wheelchair seating systems.

About Ride Designs

Founded by Joe Bieganek and Tom Hetzel, Ride Designs started with the Aspen Seating Clinic, initially focusing on complex cases that other products could not address. The success and innovations developed in the clinic led to the expansion of Ride Designs, bringing their specialised seating solutions to a global audience.
