Designed for teenagers with mild to moderate postural needs, who want to achieve enhanced independence
IndiGO is a smart and stylish chair, ideal for use by
teenagers both at school and at home. While delivering
the necessary comfort and postural support through its
discreet built-in thoracics and lumbar prompt, the chair is
also designed to integrate seamlessly into any classroom
IndiGO has been designed for teenagers with mild to
moderate postural needs, who want to achieve enhanced
independence from their chair. The user operated brake,
for instance, puts the user in control of applying and
releasing the brakes without needing assistance
instantly giving them a sense of independence.
The brake can be fitted on either the left hand or right
IndiGO is customisable, in either black or blue and either size 4 or size 5, to the needs of the user. For children with moderate needs, we offer a range of accessories that promote correct seating posture. A full range of accessories can be found on page 34-35. The chair has been designed with both the therapist’s and the child’s needs in mind. All adjustments can be made easily and mostly without tools.
Choice of base and back
IndiGO now has the option of an electric hi-lo base (as pictured below and right), making height adjustments simple and easy. IndiGO has two available back sizes: a low back and a high back. The low back has been designed with social integration in mind and is best suited to a child with mild needs. The high back is more appropriate for a child who may need a harness or extra physical support.
IndiGO’s adjustable lumbar prompt allows the therapist to change the shape of the seat back in this region and provide a more comfortable position for the user.
Flip Away Armrest
The armrests are height adjustable and can also flip away when they are not needed. This is particularly beneficial when self-transferring from one chair to another.
The keystone to posture management is the pelvis and IndiGO’s contoured seat helps to ensure that it is correctly positioned.
The thoracic supports are adjustable, with an allen key, to give the user just the amount of support they need. The lumbar is the region of the spine between the diaphragm and the pelvis, which supports the most body weight and is the most flexible.
