CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a child with multiple disabilities with floor-level seating and positioning. The legs were cut off commercial plastic children's chairs and the edges smoothed. Four wooden holding blocks were glued to the underside of the chair and the chair was mounted to a hoop pine plywood base by screwing through the base into the holding blocks. An adjustable pelvic belt was fitted to the chair, using stainless steel bolts to attach it to the base. A slot was cut in the chair and a looped crotch strap was threaded through and bolted to the rear of the chair. DIMENSIONS: The base is 550 x 450 millimeters. TITLE: Supporting Early Intervention.
