Product Description

The Rifton Activity Chair with Hi/Lo Base takes a best-in-class activity chair and makes it even better. The Rifton Activity Chair quickly became the classroom standard for children and young adults with special positioning needs. Parents who saw what this chair could do for their child in the classroom also purchased one for home. Using the chair for activities at countertop heights to low-table group activities, the hi/lo base chair makes participation easy. Speech and feeding therapists also recognize the value in this chair’s infinite adjustability to meet every need. A wide variety of features and accessories makes it easy to accommodate people of all shapes, sizes and abilities.  

The Rifton Activity Chair with Hi/Lo Base makes transfers and transfer training easy. Remove the armrests and raise the Hi/Lo chair to the ideal transfer height for secure, safe, lateral moves. Flip the Footboard up and tilt the chair forward for easy sit-to-stand transfers. Lower the Hi/Lo Chair until the Footboard is flat on the floor. Because the Footboard is strong enough for stand and pivot transfers, users can assist in their own transfers.

The Rifton Activity Chair with Hi/Lo Base is offered in 3 sizes- Small, Medium and Large. The large and medium size Hi/Lo Bases are height adjustable with a Foot Pump. The small size Hi/lo Base is adjustable with a hand pump located on the back of the chair. The growth potential of each chair coupled with quality design and manufacturing ensures years of reliable daily use.  Please refer to Size Chart for proper fitting

All Rifton Activity Chairs have Tilt-in-Space. The Rifton Activity Chair with Hi/Lo Base tilts (as a unit with no change in degree of hip flexion) 15 degrees forward and 25 degrees back. The Backrest Angle can be independently adjusted 5 degrees forward to 20 degrees back. When the backrest angle is adjusted in relation to the seat, the angle at the hip changes. These features combine to allow easy transitions between forward leaning for task participation and unimpeded interaction, and reclining for rest or a higher level of support.

Choosing a Back Spring  for the  Hi/Lo Activity Chair will create a dynamic seat that allows for self-generated, dynamic motion. The spring column can be locked when not in use. The Spring Option is ideal for individuals with autism and for individuals with significantly increased extensor tone that results in extensor thrusting.

The Rifton Activity Chair with Hi/Lo Base comes standard with Footboard, Push Handles and Double Locking Casters. The Footboard facilitates weight-bearing through the legs and feet during functional sitting activities, and can be used with sandals or ankle straps (sold separately in accessories section) to meet specific positioning needs. The footboard can flip up, swing back out of the way for sit-to-stand transfers, or can be used as a step for transfers. The Footboard is adjustable in height and knee angle.

Comfortable Seat and Backrest Pads are essential for providing cushioned support and preventing pressure sores. The backrest and seat pads are made of polyurethane foam covered with a cleanable, healthcare-grade polyurethane-coated fabric. The seat pad can be turned front to back for longer wear. Pads are available in a variety of colors. The chair’s seatbelt is included as standard.

You will have a choice of Arm Supports: Armrests provide lateral boundaries as well as upper extremity weight-bearing assist to aid trunk control. Rifton’s armrests can be raised or lowered individually and can be set at angles from horizontal to 30 degrees up or down. Forearm Prompts facilitate head and trunk control while sitting, and secure forearm placement. This enables the use of the pelvic girdle and trunk core muscles for improved postural stabilization and strengthening. Rifton’s forearm prompts are fully adjustable for optimal positioning.

It's easy to see why this chair is so popular with clinicians and families. Adjustments are performed tool free. Adjustments can be made while the chair is in use. Accessories are easily placed and removed. This chair is ideal for accommodating one user’s growth and changes in functional ability and is equally as effective in multi-user environments.
