Loving his Strato on the new Hi-Lo Electric Base

“We would say the chair has been successful in supporting our pupils participation and posture during class activities. The wheels make the chair very mobile. We would also say the pupil really enjoys using the seat and he is happy to use it in a variety of environments.”

Chi Chi winning the hearts of Birmingham Physiotherapists and school children

“Chi Chi stander is a fantastic, basic piece of equipment.  It looks great (the children and staff all find it really appealing) and it holds the child securely whilst offering plenty of opportunity for active therapy.  It can be adjusted to meet the various needs of the children and is a very affordable price.  It would be great as an assessment tool as well as a long-term standing option”

Jacqui Parker, Band 7 Paediatric Physiotherapist, Birmingham NHS Trust
