KAYE Corner Chairs provide support for symmetrical posture and mid-line control of head and trunk and improve breathing for children who have low trunk tone. The corner shaped back prevents scapular and shoulder retraction, a pattern frequently seen in children who cannot stabilize against gravity. With hands forward on an adjustable tray, the child gains shoulder protraction and symmetrical arm posture for playing and feeding.
The head supports, tray and abductor are removable so that as the child gains balance in sitting, he will feel confident to try these new movement skills. The seat can be raised for a child with poor pelvic stability so the child can be positioned with the hips and knees flexed to facilitate a vertical pelvis. With the seat in a low position, a child can be positioned with hips flexed but knees extended to facilitate long leg sitting. The abductor wedge can be positioned in front of the seat at the distal part of the femur to maintain hip abduction with either knee flexion or extension.
The seat belt positioned over the hips aids pelvic stability. A firm support along the spine may give the child better spinal stability and shoulder position and consequently greater freedom for the arms.
The KAYE Corner Chairs provide a firm, padded insert which converts the V-shaped back to a three-sectioned winged back, and can be removed to meet the postural needs of the individual child. Both Corner Chairs can be ordered with or without casters, making these chairs easy to move within a room or from one room to another.
