We were introduced to a 6 yr old girl with challenging seating requirements in Wigan.
The girl had quite pronounced Scoliosis, an upper body rotation to the left and very high tone. Her private OT had requested an assessment with a gravity chair
but in meeting her decided that it would not be appropriate for her, so we tried a large Chillibean
Our first attempt resulted in her rotating out of the moulded position, with some feedback from Mum, we tried her with her knees elevated more and this worked brilliantly. She sat relaxed in a totally supportive, comfortable position for the rest of the assessment.
The girl was placed down in her therapy mat afterwards and the carer commented on how much more relaxed she was than usual.
Mum was so impressed with the effect the Chillibean
had, she bought one the same day!
