Clear, practical advice on daily living equipment for young people
These chairs are often popular with families for home use as they can look like ordinary armchairs and the upholstery may often be chosen to match other chairs. They do however, offer adjustment and postural support not provided in a standard armchair.
Most have adjustable width armrests and a contoured backrest, with head support and wings to help support the child when sitting up. Harnesses, lap straps and trays are available for some models as well as waterproof covers that can be put on under the upholstered covers. Some of the models are multi-adjustable and will meet the needs of growing children.
These chairs may enable children to sit in a variety of supported positions including: a reclined position; with legs stretched out on a leg rest; side lying.
