KAYE Bolster Chairs (with tray)

The KAYE Bolster Chairs are most appropriate for spastic or athetoid children who need hip flexion with abduction to achieve their best pelvic and trunk alignment for sitting. This posture helps bring the arms and hands forward for function. It also decreases hip and knee extension, a more vertical pelvis, and an approximation of the normal spinal curves. In addition, by adding lateral pelvic supports, a firm back, and foot supports, the seat aids symmetry and alignment without the necessity of discouraging restraints.

The KAYE Bolster Chairs are an excellent seating alternative for children who normally sit with their legs under them in "W" fashion. Prolonged sitting in a "W" position may lead to internal rotation and adduction of the hips and will limit the child's ability to move into and out of sitting. The KAYE Bolster Chairs maintain hip flexion and abduction with external rotation, a position that promotes movement in sitting.
