Comfort Comes First
When kids are comfortable, they’re relaxed. Every Chill-Out Chair is built with a combination of high-grade foams to help relax spastic muscles and provide the most comfortable sitting experience possible.
Straps? Restraints? No Way!
Every Chill-Out Chair is built using our patented Deep-V foam design. This special cut in the foam works alongside our built-in pommel to give kids and adults a light cocooning hug that helps the body to relax and remain in place. We love helping people discover the freedom from the confines of a wheelchair or lack of support from a beanbag.
