SEATING

KRABAT JOCKEY

Krabat Jockey is an active children’s chair, in which the child is seated on a saddle with his/her legs apart. The spread position for the lower part of the body and the footrests provides a stable position for the pelvis, and reduces the need for upper body support. A saddle sitting position provides many physiological benefits.

The chair gives the child considerable mobility and variation. Krabat Jockey has a compact and modern design that takes up little space and allows it to fit in even where space is limited. The chair is extremely lightweight and foldable for easy transportation.

Krabat Jockey is height adjustable and can be adjusted from floor level up to a height that exceeds a normal kitchen worktop. The chair is easy to operate even for inexperienced assistants. Krabat Jockey is also available with electric elevation and lowering mechanisms.

The seat is designed to prevent the pelvis of spastic children moving forwards. The top of the seat prevents the thighs from being trapped underneath the table. The saddle seat is detachable, and a larger seat can easily be fitted on the same undercarriage as the child grows.

Krabat Jockey is suitable for children with a variety of diagnoses and has many possibilities for adaptation. The chair is available in two sizes, which combined cover the requirements of children from the age of 2-14 years.
