Specifically designed to promote head and upper extremity control, Maddak's Corner Seat/Positioning Aid ultimately encourages the development of fine motor control. With the ability to stabilize the trunk, pelvis and shoulders, this special seat facilitates the arms and shoulders to come forward, increasing arm movements and encouraging the young user to work on activities in the midline.

Constructed of lightweight but durable polyethylene, this positioning aid is simple to transport, and easy to clean and maintain. It can be used anywhere; indoors, outdoors and even in the bathtub, offering extreme versatility and a wider range of applications. The broad base provides a stable seat that won't tip over, while an H-strap provides anterior trunk support, an abductor block keeps legs extended and reduces extensor thrust, and a hip belt aids in maintaining overall proper positioning.

The Corner Seat/Positioning Aid offers a generous 200 pound weight capacity and accommodates user heights up to 60 inches. “We are delighted to introduce more consumers to the helpful and adaptive Corner Seat/Positioning Aid from Maddak,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This 'use-anywhere-chair' will end up being your favorite chair of choice for your special needs child or pediatric clients.
