- The Company
ComforTech is a biomechanical technology company
that specializes in seating design for a wide variety
of applications, including a seating system for
wheelchairs. Based on ideas initiated and formed by
Dr. William Chow, the Company developed and holds
ownership rights to a unique, proprietary technology
that maps a suspension seat to the geometry and
demands of each individual's body structure.
ComforTech's first application of its unique
technology is a wheelchair seating system called
BodyMap. The BodyMap suspension seat is amazingly
simple. It can be constructed with a wide choice
of materials and offers many inherent advantages
compared to other seating designs. Avoiding the
use of exotic fluid materials, BodyMap's technology
instead concentrates on the use of foams, elastomers,
fabrics, rubber and plastics. Pressure and comfort
measurements demonstrate that the BodyMap suspension
seat is among the best of all seating options
available on the market.
To date, financial backing and management support
for BodyMap has been provided by Sentron Medical Inc.,
a company that manages commercialization processes
for advanced medical technologies.
ComforTech and BodyMap are registered trademarks.
