A new dimension in special needs seating  

The potential to use specialist seating to positively impact a child with physical, emotional or sensory issues is being extended through developments at AAT GB.

Gravity Chair, the unique foam positioning system that is already proven to achieve a safe, stable environment for severe and complex motor and sensory impairments, is now available in a choice of colours. Blue, green and pink compliment the standard grey. 

Gravity Chairs in different colours for special needs seating 

The colours have been specifically chosen for their role in positively influencing a child’s emotions, reinforcing feelings of harmony and calm that Gravity Chair delivers via its innovative design, harnessing the natural forces of gravity.

The deep, inclined structure of Gravity Chair naturally “hugs” the child and encourages a stable seating position without any harnessing. It reduces muscle tension whilst accommodating muscle contortion and spasms. 

AAT has a range of accessories that enable the seat to be perfectly set up for each child and make it more than “just a chair”. These include wedges, head rests, lateral supports, rockers, abduction pommels and therapy tables, all designed to reduce anxiety and encourage engagement.

Clare Mason, Children’s Occupational Therapist @ Sefton Carers Centre/ Alderhey is just one fan of Gravity Chair. She comments: “When children feel safe, secure and comfortable their muscle tone relaxes, allowing them to focus and enjoy play activities.  Children who require supportive seating spend many hours strapped in functional seats and wheelchairs using harnesses or chest straps.  Gravity Chair can give them seating away from all that and is in my experience always positively received by the children and their parents.”

Adds AAT Director Peter Wingrave: “Adding colours into the mix of benefits that Gravity Chair brings further encourages the positive feelings that children experience when using the chair. It adds another dimension to their comfort and relaxation.”
