Special Tomato™ Soft-Touch™ Sitter
Good Day RettGirls!
This week at RettGirl.org we are featuring the Special Tomato™ Soft-Touch™ Sitter. For those of you that have anything in the Special Tomato line you know that this is an incredibly comfortable and sturdy line of adaptive equipment.
The Special Tomato™ Soft-Touch™ Sitter can be found in our Product Reviews under Positioning.
We use our sitter all over the house. In the living room we actually sit it in the recliner and harness her in. It keeps her from falling over and she can still watch
TV or play in a sitting position comfortably.
In the kitchen we strap it to a kitchen chair and she can join us for dinner or family games. No booster seat needed. With the 5 point harness we don't have to keep one hand on her at all times.
One RettMom says,"This chair is so comfy for Annie. She can rock and not hit her head, and it tilts back just slightly so it’s perfecting for eating but doesn’t prevent her from using her switches. I love that it straps right onto our kitchen chairs so she’s can be pulled up to the table with the rest of the family."
Another mom uses her Special Tomato™ Soft-Touch™ Sitter with her daughters Special Tomato® EIO Push Chair . It fits right into the seat and provides that extra support for extended periods in the stroller.
Description from the company website:
The Special Tomato™ Soft-Touch™ Sitter Only is an adaptive seating system for children with special needs. It is recommended for children with mild to moderate physical involvement from the age of 1 through adulthood. The Soft-Touch™ Sitter promotes an upright, seated posture with unsurpassed comfort and upper body support
This sitter comes in 5 sizes for girls up to 200 pounds.
Those of us here at RettGirl that own one highly recommend it.
Have a great week and good luck.
