The Gravity Chair is a very supportive foam positioning system to provide postural control for a wide range of individuals.
Following the principle of ‘Tension and Relaxation’, the Gravity Chair provides not only a comfortable seat but can also provide an alternative and stable seating solution for users who might have spent time on the floor for relaxation. It also can offer a snug and ‘safe’ feeling for users who have a need for increased sensory feedback, a well-positioned base from which to perform a range of different therapy activities, or even a comfortable but supported seating solution for palliative care clients.
Users with limited ability to sit by themselves can be comfortably supported in the Gravity Chair. If a user spasms, the Gravity Chair absorbs this force, allowing for some movement. After the spasm, the chair brings the user back into the original position. It is also a great option for individuals who may be mobile, but where mobility requires significant energy. The Gravity Chair can be used to support relaxation and comfort when needed as an alternative to less supportive options like upright seating or wheelchairs.
The Gravity Chair’s appealing look and neutral colour wipe-down covers make it fit into the home or school environment just like all the other furniture.
Off the floorThe Gravity Chair gets people off the floor and into supported sitting. The centre of gravity is very low to offer people who may have only laid down when out of the wheelchair in bed, to remain in a supported but relaxed seated position.
Uses the benefits of gravity
The seating configuration utilises the force of gravity to ‘hold’ the individual very comfortably.
Postural supportThe Gravity Chair will provided the needed postural support during times of relaxing to enhance a person’s well-being, independence and participation in everyday life.
Alternative relaxing chairThe Gravity Chair can be used as an alternative relaxing chair. Whilst providing comfort for the user, it also gives caregivers peace of mind knowing the person is supported correctly.
Alternative to after-school floor timeWhen you would usually place your child on the floor after school or therapy, the Gravity Chair is a great alternative relaxing tool.
Calming benefitsThe Gravity Chair’s snug fit is excellent for individuals with perception differences such as autism or ADHD, providing close body comfort and helping provide a calm ‘safe’ space.
Lateral controlThe width of the Gravity Chair is relatively ‘narrow’, allowing good lateral posture and control. This helps to ‘hold’ the user in a mid-line position. The raised position of the arm supports also help to bolster the user laterally.
Absorbs spasm tensionFor users that spasm as they ‘thrust’ or ‘extend’, the foam properties in the Gravity Chair gently allow for the movement and absorb the tension. Once the extension force relaxes, the gentle resilience of the foam brings the user back to the original supported posture.
Wipe down coversThe Gravity Chair has vinyl leather wipe-down covers which are waterproof, flame resistant and chemical resistant.
Light and portableThe Gravity Chair is light and portable, designed for maximum practicality.
Posterior and anterior tiltThe Gravity Chair comes standard with a foam wedge that can be placed underneath the chair to allow tilting of the chair, forwards, backwards, and even sideways. This provides a nice way to position and stabilise the user’s head and body such as those with Scoliosis or limited head control.
Lateral tiltYou can use the tilt wedge to achieve lateral tilt to accommodate a scoliosis or a user that tends to lean to one side.
