Wheelchair Seating Practice
Direct client interaction keeps Ride Designs on a path of continuous improvement as they test potential approaches and develop new products.
Aspen Seating Clinic
Ride Designs hosts the Aspen Seating Clinic at their Denver, Colorado headquarters where world class athletes and Paralympians, as well as the most discerning of wheelchair users, come for seating solutions. The Clinic employs Orthotists, Prosthetists, Physical/Occupational Therapists, and experienced practitioner assistants with over a century of combined experience in seating and mobility. Aspen utilizes Ride Designs products and technology on a daily basis to help wheelchair users who represent the most complex and specific of consumer needs – whether for sports and recreation interfaces or the most difficult of everyday seating challenges.
Our clients are demanding and knowledgeable wheelchair users. They insist on using Ride Designs products because nothing else has met their high standards. From Gold Medal winning Paralympic athletes to people with the most significant posture and pressure ulcer challenges, our users have experienced great success with Ride Designs technology. Regardless of what an individual wishes to sit on, or do while sitting, our team at the Aspen Seating Clinic can create the most accurate, appropriate and effective seating solution.

The Sensory Suite is a treasure trove of audio-visual effects designed to stimulate, engage and relax. Interactive scenes from nature enable journeys to the ocean depths, outer space and the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest, or the opportunity to play the drums, catch a cloud, hatch a chick or splash in a puddle.
