--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide safe classroom seating with sufficient postural support for a young adult with Down syndrome. An existing Namco Seat Rite School chair was adapted by adding 20 millimeter steel tubing shaped as an inverted U to the top of the backrest to increase the back height. The chair was stabilized to prevent tipping backward by adding a second set of rear legs at the same angle as the existing legs and bracing them by connecting the pairs with metal strips. Also added to the chair was a chest support strap made of outdoor furniture fabric and equipped with Velcro fasteners. Webbing was used to make pelvic and crotch straps which were equipped with buckle closures. DIMENSIONS: The chest strap was 80 millimeters wide and the pelvic and crotch straps were 50 millimeters wide. TITLE: Support Chairs. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 4, Summer 2005. PAGES: 10. Number of pages: 2 (including cover).
