Out & About Seating
When you are out & about, and someone in your group has special needs, it’s not always easy to be inclusive when it comes to seating arrangements. In sports stadiums, movie theatres, at concerts, school, your favourite neighbourhood restaurant and even at your own kitchen table, people who require postural support to sit for any length of time probably can’t sit where everyone else is sitting. Sometimes, it even limits their ability to participate.
Special Tomato has created the Out & About Seat (OAS) that provides comfortable upper body support using a padded, adjustable 8-Point Harness System and height adjustable Headrest. It will change where your family member with special needs can take a seat and remain comfortably seated while out with family and friends. The Special Tomato OAS can be attached to most standard, stable chairs that have a minimum seat back height of 14”.
