If “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” as the old proverb states, Quick-Seat is the brain child of Bonnie R. Breit, an Occupational Therapist with more than 30 years of experience in the field of healthcare. She is the president of BRB Consulting, Inc. a company that focuses on the needs of those with disabilities and the need to improve their quality of life, as an ongoing mission. “Once an Occupational Therapist, always an Occupational Therapist”, and that is where the original concept of EZ-Rest®, now Quick-Seat, was first conceived. As a CARF surveyor, Bonnie, who is out in the field on an on-going basis, has not only a keen eye for the needs of those with physical challenges, but also the creative and technical vision to be able to provide the solution. Thus, Quick-Seat, “Temporary Seating That Closes Itself” is also a seat that fits close to the wall until it is needed, having only a 20” by 3 ¾” footprint when closed.
Even more, Quick-Seat is easy to open with fingertip pressure or hand’s free by using a tap of the foot before opening up to provide safe seating at 20” x 14” by 18” high, in the tightest of places where it will hold more than 500 lbs. Quick-Seat doesn’t require any further action to close, as Quick-Seat slowly, safely and quietly retracts to its closed position by itself, requiring no extra effort.
The original quote was, “Art imitates life and necessity is the mother of invention”. No where is the creation of a product like Quick-Seat, more evident than in healthcare, since it is the life-needs of so many people that inspired this creative and much needed product.
