I need a chair with sides and back support
Corner Chairs with Back and Side Support Free Hands for Play!
When a child has difficulty holding themselves upright while sitting either due to muscle weakness or problems with balance and equilibrium, they can often benefit from more than just back support alone. A corner chair has a V-Shaped backrest providing not only back support but lateral (side) support as well. Corner Sitters are a classic piece of special needs equipment that have stood the test of time. Corner sitting provides a floor sitting option for children with mild to moderate postural needs who can sit with some support or by using their hands. But a Corner Chair doesn’t do all the work. It provides intended postural challenges to help develop postural control. Stable control of the head, trunk and pelvis is the foundation needed for the development of fine motor skills. When delays in a child’s development make it impossible for them to sit on the floor independently, a Corner Chair may be the perfect solution.
The Corner Chair is specifically designed to support an upright, stable posture of the head, trunk and pelvis facilitating hands free for play. But it also provides the support needed to sit upright on the floor to encourage social interaction and communication with peers during floor time. Corner Floor Sitters can also provide the needed support for a child to long sit on the floor offering an opportunity for hamstring stretching.
