Special Tomato

ST Logo Special Tomato products are designed by the original creator of Tumble Forms, Tim Bergeron. He has improved his special needs seating and positioning designs to make them more therapeutically sound to enhance what therapists and caregivers work on daily with their children. Tim's new material is also soft yet extremely durable to stand up to daily use in homes, clinics, schools and hospitals. They simply wipe down with a mild cleaner and cloth in between uses. All of the belting can be removed for machine washing as well.

The Soft-Touch® material outer skin prevents the seating and positioning products from peeling or tearing and also prevents liquids from penetrating the core. It is cool and smooth reducing the possibility of children’s skin sticking to the seating surface. The soft-to-the-touch inner core is a specially formulated foam that allows for children to sit comfortably for longer periods of time.

With over 35 years of manufacturing pediatric seating and positioning systems, our products are safe and easy to use while providing a latex-free contact surface.

The contoured designs of our products provide a large surface area for distributing pressure which reduces the risk of skin shear and breakdown. Many of our products are crash-tested for auto and FAA approved for airline use.

Hand-crafted in upstate New York, the Special Tomato products are designed with the needs of the user and care provider in mind. The superior Soft-Touch materials are very durable and easy to clean. Our unique bent wooden bases deliver support and strength while the Soft-Touch material allows our designers to subtlety integrate the positioning contours needed for a proper seating system. We stand behind the quality of our products by offering up to a 5 year warranty on most of our products.

Special Tomato: Our Family Story

The Special Tomato of My Family!

My dad and mom had four children. The first three children were healthy and regular people. Then I came along, a baby with a difference, Down syndrome. I had a hole in my heart, a rip in my heart valve, jaundice, a big tongue and a wobbly head. As I got older I also realized that I am a slow learner.

One day it was bothering me that I was having a hard time doing my school work. I told my dad about this problem and he shared a story about when he was out in his garden picking tomatoes the year I was born. Every year my dad grows a garden and loves to plant tomatoes. At harvest time there were Beefsteak tomatoes on a bush. When he saw a differently shaped tomato it got his attention. It had a large, smooth, bright red enlarged side that made my dad want to pick it up and study the bump because it was so unique and looked appetizing. At supper, that tomato was just as juicy as the others.

Even though I'm different like the tomato as a person with Down syndrome, my family and friends love me even more and want to help me when I need it. My dad tells me that even though I have more difficulty learning than my brother and sisters, my lovable and outgoing personality and strong character make me just as special as they are. I guess I am the special "tomato" on our family's bush!
