A person, stricken of their ability to walk. A disease, incurable to fix this damage. A company, battling to help the diagnosed.

   According to nationalmssociety.org, Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.

   According to webmd.com, MS can affect the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves in the eyes. It can cause problems with vision, balance, muscle control, and other basic body functions.

   Seating Matters is a business that produces chairs to suit MS patients. Started by Martina Tierney, Seating Matters’ goals are to improve patients’ lives and to influence clinical best practice.

   According to seatingmatters.com, there were eight different chairs to choose from, the Monaco, Monaco Riser, Phoenix, Kidz Phoenix, Atlanta, Sorrento, Kidz Sorrento, and the Bariatric.

   One of the chairs, the Phoenix, had adjustable shoulder and head supports and can also conform to the person’s individual posture and position with fast and easy adjustments.

   According to seatingmatters.com, Tierney said, “The quality of their chair determines the quality of their life.”
