An active chair with a saddle seat
The Krabat Jockey is an active chair with saddle seat for children aged 2-14 years. The chair is suitable for children with a variety of diagnoses and is available in two sizes. The height adjustment is either operated with a remote control on the electric undercarriage or by pressing a button integrated in the handle on the manual undercarriage. The design of the saddle seat gives the child a more upright position ideal for use in kindergarten and school.
Physiological benefits of using a saddle seat:
By opening the angle of the hips, the pelvis neutrally positioned. With the pelvis neutral the natural S-curvature of the spine can be maintained over time. All major joints in the lower extremities become centered, which promotes normal muscle tone and muscle length. The hip joint is in its resting position in which the femoral head is positioned inside the hip socket. The sitting position in the saddle seat can prevent complications such as muscle contractures, hip pain and subluxations. The saddle seat enhances an active, upright seating position rather than a passive, slumped one.
