The client had weak posture resulting in pronounced leaning to the right both standing and seated, and
wanted to feel supported and held in a more upright position whilst seated at the dining table.
padded supports were temporarily clamped in place and adjusted in consultation with the clients occupational therapist, until the
best solution was found.
Design factors to be considered included the stability and strength of the chair and ease
of use and comfort of the client. Side handles have been incorporated to assist the client in and out of the chair.
