Innovation & Design

Through on going research and development our award winning design department continues to design innovative seating supports and mobility devices, with an emphasis on durability, clinical functionality and appropriateness to the local context.


Initiating change through innovation is what has established and sustained Shonaquip as a market leader in the provision, development and production of appropriate mobile posture support devices.

Innovation lies at the core of how we approach the real world challenges we are confronted with on a daily basis. It spans the company from business strategy and systems design to product development and the customisation of devices for individual clients.


The market place for disability equipment has grown and evolved immensely since the humble beginnings of the first Madiba Buggies produced in Shona’s garage. Through the introduction of formal design methods, we have been able to leap ahead in offering world class rugged children’s postural support seating devices.

This has enabled us to develop these devices to not only stand up to the demanding environments in which they are used, but do so while offering the best possible support for the child, through simple operation, adaptation, maintenance and repair.
