Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter

In providing supportive, postural and comfortable seating for individuals with special needs and mild to moderate postural needs, the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter can help children retain quality of life and enable socialising, play and more. Suitable for use at home, at school or at clubs, the Sitter comes in five different sizes, ensuring that support is provided for children from the ages of one through to adulthood.

Who is the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter For?

Offering an alternative to sitting for children with special needs and moderate postural needs, the Special Tomato Sitter offers increased mobility, stability and support, helping to increase quality of life and make day-to-day living easier. Accessories that can be bought aim to improve the level of support, comfort, mobility, posture and head support that the sitter offers. Depending on the size selected, this product is suitable for children from the age of one through to adulthood.

What's in the Box?

Your Special Tomato Sitter will include:

  • 1 x Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter
  • 1 x Five Point Harness
  • 1 x User Manual
  • 1 x Stationary, Mobile or Floor Base (Optional)

Why Should You Buy the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter?

When your child is sitting in the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter you can rest assured that they are secure, with a five-point harness system that provides mobility without rocking. What this product really provides is a combination of comfort and head and lateral support, ensuring that the child can rest in the chair while receiving the support needed.

It enables young children to not miss out on key development and partake in social interactions, especially if you choose the mobile base that allows for movement. Finally, by providing a practical, supportive and comfortable support to a child's specific needs, you can help provide an increased level of confidence and quality of life.

How Do You Use the Soft-Touch Sitter?

Using the Special Tomato Sitter is easy, as all you need to do is find a big enough chair that the sitter can sit on. Once on the chair you can use special straps to secure it to the chair before the child has sat in place. Once they have, strap the child in place using the secure five-point safety harness that will provide support without restricting movement.

How Does the Sitter Support Your Child?

The Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter offers support to children with mild to moderate postural needs. This means that for children who have a disability that can impact their posture and stability or an injury that impacts posture and stability, this sitter will be suitable. The Soft-Touch Sitter features head, trunk and lateral support, ideal for letting the child rest comfortably while retaining posture and stability.

How Do You Purchase Your Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter?

You'll notice at the top of the page there are three different drop down menus. Firstly you will need to specify the correct size, secondly the colour, and thirdly choose between No Base, a Stationary Base, a Mobile Base or a Floor Sitter. All of these items are available individually should you want to come back and purchase an extra for your Tomato Sitter.

Which Base Is Right for Me?

You'll notice in the drop down menu at the top of the page you have a choice for base. From here you can select No Base, Mobile Base, Stationary Base or Floor Sitter Base. Please note that you can buy these bases with the Soft-Touch Sitter by selecting from the drop down menu above, or you can buy them separately by clicking the links below.

How Safe is the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter to Use?

If you're concerned about your child's safety when using the Soft-Touch Sitter then you needn't be. A five-point harness keeps the child securely in place while allowing enough movement that they can still retain a level of independence. Furthermore, an anti-thrust surface aids in security and safety, ensuring that the sitter doesn't slip, slide and go out of control during use.

What Type of Harness Does the Soft-Touch Sitter Supplied With?

It features a five-point safety harness that can secure the child securely in place to ensure that they don't fall or slip out of the chair during use. The five straps meet in the middle to provide optimal support, and as each strap can be adjusted for the child's specific needs it means that no damage to the overall comfort has been allowed. The unique design and positioning of each strap also serves the purpose of positioning the child in the middle of the Sitter for increased stability while ensuring that movement isn't compromised.

Can the User Retain Movement in the Soft-Touch Sitter?

The Special Tomato Sitter is designed to ensure that the child can retain movement in use, even with the five-point harness that holds the child securely in place. It also allows a certain degree of tilt, meaning that the child can reach items on a table or on the floor if the right base has been selected.

Can the Soft-Touch Sitter be Used Out of the House?

The Soft-Touch Sitter can be used at schools, clubs and more, ensuring that young children can continue to socialise and learn despite their specific needs. While we recommend the mobile base to optimise movement, the lightweight nature of the sitter means that a parent or carer can carry the chair to a different place. Please note that this sitter is not suitable for use in a car.

What is the Soft-Touch Sitter Made From?

The Soft-Touch Sitter is designed from soft, skin like and durable materials. The plastic is designed to be firm which is ideal for positioning the user in the middle of the chair without restricting comfort. The materials are peel and tear resistant and won't crack, helping to improve safety for the user and the overall durability of the product, while the latex-free design reduces allergy risks.

Can You Clean the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Sitter?

Whether the chair will be used daily or only occasionally, it's important to keep it clean for good hygiene. Thankfully, the Soft-Touch Sitter is made to be impermeable to fluids for easier cleaning and wiping down in between use. This helps to keep the sitter clean and looking fresh when used by one child only, while also reducing contamination if the Sitter is used in schools and clinics for multiple children.

In case you require spare parts, we have a number available from Health and Care. For further information, see the below links:
