I Need Help SITTING...

Durable Adaptive Seating for Home, School and Community

Children with special needs often require support to sit with a well aligned posture. Upright sitting promotes engagement in social situations, learning, therapy activities and fun! Whether a child requires complete support for sitting or adjustable/ decreasing support while learning core control for upright postures, the right seat can be found at Adaptivemall.com. Providing necessary support in sitting translates into energy that can be used to focus attention, improve upper extremity functional skills and participate in social exchanges. Providing the perfect balance of support, freedom and comfort allows children to be relaxed and attentive and assists them in reaching their potential. 

Picking the Right Special Needs Chair

With an ever-increasing array of special needs seating equipment, you can be confident that Adaptivemall.com will make available to you the tried and true classics and the cutting-edge advancements in seating spurred on by rapidly changing technology. But if you aren't sure which product is right for you, we always recommend reaching out to us. Adaptivemall.com is staffed by physical and occupational therapists and intervention specialists who are happy to provide you with custom advice. All seating selections have been handpicked and recommended by therapists and families with special needs children. This equipment is appropriate for but not limited to children with diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Gross Motor Delay, Spina Bifida, and Autism.

Seating is one of the most important categories of special needs equipment. Selection of appropriate adaptive seating should be approached creatively, and this is best supported by a wide variety of options. If your child will require a significant amount of support for sitting or intermittent rest, chairs with tilt-in-space or recline features may be needed. If you’re looking for a seat that can be used as a floor sitter and a seat at the table, a seating system with a Hi Lo base should be considered. Active sitting solutions are best for kids who may require a little bit of bouncing or swiveling to help them maintain their focus. And everyone knows the relaxation that loungers and bean bag chairs can offer.
