Product Description

The Rifton Compass Chair is a simple, durable seating solution for students who require more postural support then a standard classroom chair can provide. It is available in five sizes to accommodate everyone, from small children to adults. The Compass has been designed for students with mild physical involvement who will benefit from an ergonomically contoured seat and sturdy armrests. The armrests are short enough to position the student close to a table and are the optimal height to aid in transfers. In the clinic this chair is ideal for children who are becoming more independent in postural control and sit to stand transfers. The contoured seat and armrests also provide reassuring sensory boundaries that improve the student’s comfort and security. This has been found to be particularly beneficial for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

The rock-solid frame of the Rifton Compass has been built to withstand years of demanding use. At the same time, its simple construction allows it to blend easily into any classroom environment making it the perfect inclusion chair. The Compass Chair comes standard with Adjustable Height Legs. Two inches of height adjustment ensures optimal seat height for the user. It also allows for accommodation of growth or simple, convenient height customization in multi-user environments. Adjusting the front legs longer or shorter than the rear legs makes it possible to position the chair in a slight posterior or anterior tilt. Providing a slight posterior tilt has been found to help some students relax. Seat and back have a non-slip texture for added security and are easily cleaned with disinfectant wipes or a solution of up to 10% bleach.

For students who require additional safety features, optional accessories for the Rifton Compass Chair include Stability Feet and a Seat Belt, each available for an additional cost. The Compass Chair’s wide footprint makes it inherently stable. But for users who require even greater stability to prevent tipping, the optional stability feet can be attached to the rear legs. The optional Seat Belt clips into chair when needed for safety or postural support. The seat belt’s side-release buckle can be positioned in the middle or off set to one side.

The basic Compass Chair comes fully assembled, complete with four adjustable legs and rubber tips. It is appropriate for use in schools, clinics and at home.
