With all adjustments easy to make and no tools required the Rifton Activity Chair is an ideal choice for the busy special needs classroom or at home.
The lateral supports are fully adjustable in height, width and angle all with one knob, which, by the way, can’t ever fall off and get lost. Unlike a reclining wheelchair, the Rifton Activity chair can be easily adjusted while a client is in the chair. This saves time and makes adjustments much simpler to gauge.
Seat depth can be safely and easily adjusted while a child is in the chair, by pulling the handle beneath the seat. All Rifton Activity Chairs have tilt-in-space, which encourages sit-to-stand and resting positions. Tilt-in-space can be activated tool-free while your client is in the chair.
The standard base tilts 15° forward and 15° back while the hi/lo base tilts 15° forward and 25° back.
In addition to tilt-in-space, every Rifton Activity Chair’s Backrest angle adjusts 5° forward and 20° back.The optional seat and backrest springs on the Rifton Activity Chair standard base (and the backrest spring in the hi/lo base) allow for calming through self-generated motion ideal for clients with autism. The spring column can be locked when not in use.Armrests provide lateral boundaries as well as upper extremity weight-bearing assist to aid trunk control. Rifton’s armrests can be raised or lowered individually to accommodate clients who need extra trunk stabilisation and can be set at angles ranging from horizontal to 60° up or down. The tray accessory attaches to the armrests.
