Repair & Recover Pilates Equipment
This is a Pilates Spine Corrector. As you might expect, it's designed to stretch and properly align your back.
This apparatus was made by the original manufacturer of Pilates equipment so it's properly designed and well built. There's just one problem; sitting directly on the saddle puts pressure on the stitch line. Over time the stitching can fail. That's what happened here.
Instead of just restitching the vinyl and calling it good, we suggested a more permanent fix.
Reupholster Chiropractic Tables
Chiropratic adjustment tables come in all shapes and sizes. The exam bench does double-duty as a diagnostic tool and adjustment platform. Because it's used so often, the exam bench wears out fast. Even the toughest vinyl won't last forever in a busy chiropractic office.
A chiropractor doesn't want to be without an exam bench, so quick turnaround and quality workmanship are important. Fortunately, reupholstering this sort of equipment can be done in a day or so.
Since a patient usually lies face down on the bench during an exam, the vinyl often wears out in the same place. While the damaged section may be limited, you have to replace the whole thing or the result won't be satisfactory.
We start with the padding. Polyurethane foam goes flat with frequent use. It's best to replace the padding every couple of years. This foam is still in pretty good shape, so we use steam to plump it. Steam restores the foam to its original shape.
With the padding back to normal, we size the upholstery fabric. Anything less than commercial grade vinyl won't do. It's important to properly fit the new upholstery because vinyl can sag and wrinkle unless it's pulled taught during the application process. Fitting the curves -- especially inside curves -- requires years of experience.
In less than a day, the newly upholstered exam bench is on its way back to the clinic. We'll probably see it again in seven or eight months.
Exam Chair Redesign
Here's something you don't see very often; a medical exam chair with biscuit patterns sewn into the upholstery. It looks kind of stylish, but it's incredibly impractical. Exam chairs and tables need to be kept clean. The gutters surrounding each biscuit not only collect microscopic debris, they're hard to clean.
The chair needed a new cover. Instead of reprising the pattern, we recommended a smooth, easily maintainable surface.

The vinyl we used to upholster the exam chair is called Soave Haze. It's manufactured for medical, office, automotive and home use. With a rating of 150 thousand double rubs, Soave Haze is extremely durable. At the same time, it doesn't have that stiff feel often associated with heavy duty vinyl. It's soft as leather, and the subtle pattern stamped into the fabric looks great.
In addition to being more practical, upholstering the exam chair without the biscuit pattern is less expensive.
A Sleeker Design
When a Seattle chiropractic service needed to update its adjusting tables and office furniture, they called us. It would have been easy to recover the equipment and move on to the next project. Instead, we suggested some tweaks to improve the appearance and durability of the apparatus. Compare the before pics (burgundy fabric) with the after pics (black fabric) below.
In addition to covering this headrest in a more durable fabric, we streamlined the design and restored the foam. If our upholstery team spots a way to improve the performance or appearance of equipment -- even if it's a relatively minor change -- we'll let you know. Details are important at Upholstery Seattle.
