Junior – Seating system

Created with significant input from parents, the Junior has been designed to incorporate the maximum in terms of functionality, flexibility and style.  New options for wider back pads, a extension post and extra padded seating mean that it also grows with the child too.  Combine this with the adjustable back angle, tilt-in-space, two piece back and lumbar support, innovative leg control options and a choice 5 different  coloured covers and you have a seating system that not only meets all needs from mild to complex, but can be specifically tailored to an individual too.

Features:

  • Outstanding Pelvic  Control System
    • Contoured seating with memory foam seat pad, independently adjustable lumbar/sacral support and a 4 point lapstrap provided as standard. Plus optional ischial bar to help prevent sacral slipping
  • Leg Control Pads
    • Unique leg control pads that enable the leg position to be controlled independently of the pelvic position, creating abduction, adduction or controlling windsweeping.  Can be used individually, or as a 2 or even 4.  As well as simple to adjust, they flip out of the way for smooth, safe and dignified transfers
  • PU Support Pads
    • Included as standard for hip support and available in a range of sizes with easy, flip away action for trunk and leg support.  PU is fully flexible, easy to clean and impervious to fluids making them hygienic and robust
  • Adjustable Seat Depth
    • The seat depth can be adjusted easily and without tools on each of the three sizes of Junior, ensuring the fit is exactly right for each child
  • Back Angle Adjustment
    • From 15 degrees recline through to 15 degrees prone, this feature can be used to create the required hip angle for the optimum seating position for each child
  • Two different Base Options
    • Both base options are height adjustable.  Choose from the X-base or Y- base
  • Adjustable Back Height
    • From 310mm on the size 1 to 500mm on the size 3, plus an extra 75mm can be added with the 5-port back extension post, meaning the Junior can grow with the child

Please check the Technical Specification under Documents and Letters to see what size Junior is appropriate for your child.

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 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.

Suitable for children with mild to moderate to complex needs.  The Junior chair can accommodate children as young as 18 months and grow and change with them and their needs as required up to the age of 12years (over 3 sizes of chair).   The clever design of the Junior also provides for an overlap of growth, which means that once a child has outgrown their size 1 Junior, they can go straight into a size 3 Junior chair.

The wide range of accessories and supports enable the Junior to provide postural support for a range of mild or complex needs and can be tailored to each specific child as required.  This removes the need to purchase additional seating systems.

The key strengths of the Junior chair are:

  • Exceptional pelvic stability
  • Ease of use
  • Wide variety of accessories
  • Versatility
  • Open plan design making it easy to see and alter the child’s posture
  • Hygienic PU throughout
  • Great growth potential
