Scott with modified posture chair.

Scott is a 14 year old who has CP and other disabling conditions.  He is mainstreamed in a local public school system. They had purchased a commercially available posture chair for him at considerable expense, but his therapists at a local rehabilitation hospital concluded that it needed many modifications in order for it to fully satisfy the requirements for him. We were also told that when at home he lived on the floor, because there were no available funds, to purchase even the less than appropriate seating for him. As we investigated the situation at the school, we also learned that he habitually pushed away from or upset the chair or work table with which he was served. Working with the therapist, we designed a chair to meet his requirements and an attachable work table that could be firmly fixed to or removed from the chair, so that he could not upset either when joined. We also built him a set for his home so that he, for the first time in almost 12 years, does not have to live on the floor.
