The Ladder Back Chair is an essential item for any therapy room that caters for children with physical disabilities. The Ladder Back Chair is used in a therapy setting for Conductive Education programs, alternate occupational therapy or physiotherapy.

Children with physical disabilities need this product to increase movement and participate in therapy activities. The Ladder Back Chair is used for passive movement to promote and strengthen active movement. Under the guidance of a qualified occupational therapist or physiotherapist the use of the Ladder Back Chair in therapy sessions is endless.

The ladder of the chair is used by the child either by facing the ladder with a therapist sitting on the seat facing the child, sitting on the seat with the ladder to the side and sitting on the seat with the ladder in front (requires ability abduct legs).  Depending on the physical or postural needs of the child, the child could be standing facing the ladder, seated on a Forward Tilt Stool or a Plinth or supported by a parent/therapist.  In various positions the Ladder Back Chair is used for reach, extension and grasp exercises of the upper limbs, sit to stand exercises and practice of active stepping.

The Ladder Back Chair is useful in many therapy situations and well utilised by therapists trained in Conductive Education. Therapists and children who use the Ladder Back Chair may also need our Forward Tilt Stool to assist with their therapy.


The Ladder Back Chair comes in two sizes – 5 rung or 8 rung.

The timber chair is a fixed height.
