Paediatric Chairs

Are you looking to buy the best pediatric chairs? Then Seating Matters is the right online store for you. Our pediatric chairs are world-renowned for their high-quality and for the clinical evidence that backs them up to show that they really can work. For more information on the benefits of these chairs and the options we offer here at Seating Matters, read on. 

The Chairs We Sell For Paediatric Conditions 

At Seating Matters, we provide two different types of chairs that are ideal for growing children, these are the Kidz Phoenix and the Kidz Sorrento. 

  1. The Kidz Phoenix chair is super easy to use and is the most supportive and functional in our range for children. If they need the maximum support for spinal conditions and are highly dependent then this is a great option. It is specifically designed for upper body support and can help provide more comfort, postural support and pressure management. 
  2. The Kidz Sorrento chair is another great option and is also very easy to operate. It helps to not only provide pressure management and postural support, but it also improves them too. 

You can find out more in-depth details about these chairs right here on our website, but our team are also on-hand if you need help deciding. 

The Benefits of Buying Paediatric Chairs

There are lots of amazing benefits that can come from using these chairs. This includes: 

  • One of the best things about these chairs is that it can help children to focus on tasks such as their schoolwork as they can place their attention on this rather than on any discomfort they are feeling. 
  • Another great benefit of our chairs is that the extra support it provides can help children to join in and socialise with friends. 
  • Often children can experience discomfort or pain when they are eating, but with our chairs helping them sit in an upright position, it can help to reduce any pressure whilst they are eating. 
  • Our chairs can help children both mentally and physically relax as they reduce stress and poor posture. 

The best part about each of these benefits is that this can all lead to happier, more content and more confident children! If you would like to know more about the benefits of our chairs here at Seating Matters, again, get in touch with our team who would be happy to help. Find out more below!
