The Bee Seating System by Jenx is suitable for children from as young as 4 months, depending on the size of the child.  Use the technical specification under Documents and Letters to help give you an idea of measurements.

This depends on what you want the chair to do and also needs to take into account your budget and the family environment that the chair is going into.

The Bee Wooden Base options:  These offer a fixed low or fixed high position, with a minimal footprint and are the most cost effective base for the Bee.

The X Base option: This base offers a small range of height adjustment and maintains a small footprint.

The Y Base option: Our most versatile and popular option, this goes low enough to fit under the majority of nursery and school tables, encourages peer height group interaction and raises high enough to comfortably sit at a dining table.  All with the added benefit of no manual handling for the caregiver.

Tilt-in-space offers the opportunity to recline the seat through a specified angle range whilst maintaining pelvic stability.  Particularly useful for children with poor head control or to aid with pressure distribution.  By utilising the full tilted angle, assisted transfers can be easier and safer to carry out.

Seating is one of the first milestones of child development.  It has many medical, social and psychological benefits.  Utilising accesories such as  the long leg facility allows children with postural needs to mimic those postures adopted whilst gaining sitting balance.   Children’s skeletons are still very soft and easily deformed through poor posture, therefore the earlier proper support can be given, the greater the chance of a positive outcome for the child’s posture.

The Bee has been designed to be small enough to accommodate children who are smaller in stature due to being born premature and who may present complex seating needs.

The Bee is suitable for children with mild, moderate and complex postural needs.  It’s versatility in terms of accessories and adaptability make it an ideal first chair.
