The CAP Posture Chair is suited to children with physical disabilities, varying muscle tone, sensory processing or distractibility issues, feeding or swallowing difficulties, and children who are short in stature.

Ensuring your child is well supported enables them to easily participate in tabletop activities and tasks. With appropriate support your child is less likely to fatigue, will be able to sit and concentrate for longer, and thus get more enjoyment and benefit out of their activities.

For a child who uses a wheelchair, the CAP Posture Chair provides a great alternative from their wheelchair. It provides opportunity to move out of their wheelchair but still feel well supported in another seat during the day. The Posture Chair allows your child to sit at regular classroom tables alongside their peers and join in during circle or library time, instead of being slightly separated by their wheelchair.

The CAP Posture Chair is suitable for messy play, feeding or for a child who has difficulties with saliva control, as it can easily be wiped clean and kept hygienic.


The CAP Posture Chair with height and armrest adjustability and a range of optional components. In general terms, this suits children in kindergarten, preschool, primary school and high school years. The adjustability across the range of the Posture Chair enables your child to keep the same familiar equipment across their school years as they grow and develop by simply upgrading to the next size.

The chair is height-adjustable and the telescopic legs can be moved using positively located pins and secured using finger-tightened setscrews to ensure stability.

The armrests adjust both vertically and horizontally ensuring your child’s elbows are at a comfortable angle. The armrests are made from high-quality hygienic plastic and can be adjusted using finger-tightened setscrews. The armrests can be easily removed to facilitate the transfer of your child.

Accommodating a range of children in a variety of situations is stress-free, as parents, teachers and therapists alike can easily adjust and adapt the chair to ensure any child is well supported and can fully participate in tabletop activities. For added peace of mind, our Posture Chairs have been tested to AS/NZS 4688.3-200 up to 150kg.

Finally add a 750x750mm Cutout Table  for the best adjustable seating and writing combination.

Optional Extras

Importantly, the robust CAP Posture Chair comes with a large range of optional components. These optional components (such as a headrest or castors), combined with the adjustability of the chair, mean obtaining optimum postural support is easy.
