The Challenge

Some children find that standard classroom chairs are unsuitable for their needs due to being shorter in stature.  Other children may find the footrest meets their needs for additional support for their feet when sitting.

They may not require the need of a specialist chair but their feet need adequate support to help reduce fatigue and/or offer assist transfer on and off of their chair.

The Outcome

The School Chair Foot Rests provide extra support to classroom chairs which children prefer to a specialised chair.

They have gone on to help even more than just children aged 4 – 14 years who have restricted growth (dwarfism), cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or other neuromuscular conditions.

The feedback we have received has confirmed that the footrest is helpful in maintaining a stable seating position.
