The CAP Posture Chair with Adjustable Back is suited to children with physical disabilities and whose size falls below or between standard chair sizes.
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 and will be able to sit and concentrate for longer, 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.
This Posture Chair has the same standard height and armrest adjustability as our original Posture Chair and accepts most of our optional components. In general terms, this chair suits children in kindergarten and preschool and caters for their growth over time.
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 backrest adjusts from 150mm to 270mm deep to allow growth or use by children with different sizes.
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.
Finally, add a 650x650mm Cutout Table for the best adjustable seating and writing combination.
Please note that due to the adjustable back configuration, the Tray, Thoracics and Pommel may have reduced adjustability depending on the back position. Please contact us for more information regarding these options.
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.
