It’s the perfect inclusion chair. With its supportive seat, sturdy armrests and stable frame the new Compass Chair offers mildly involved students the support they need to feel secure and comfortable. At the same time, its simple and elegant construction lets it blend easily into any classroom environment.
The five available sizes accommodate everyone from small children to adults, and the adjustable legs allow fine-tuning for optimal positioning.
- Seat and back have a non-slip texture for added security
- Two inches of height adjustment
- 5 sizes accommodate users of all ages
- Calming blue colour and minimalist design blends in with other classroom chairs
- Provides support and sensory boundaries
Children with vestibular or tactile hyposensitivity may exhibit movement-seeking or sensory-seeking behaviour. The Compass Chair is designed and tested to withstand continuous rocking movements.
Children with autism-spectrum disorder can benefit from gentle boundaries for emotional and sensory security. The raised sides of the seat together with the armrests provide reassuring physical borders for relaxed sitting.
Shorten the rear legs to add more recline, and assist a child to slide to the back of the seat with a gravity-assisted cue to remain seated in the chair. Shorten the front legs to add a forward tilt to contribute to postural control, access to a table or desk, and a more attentive, focused sitting position.
High armrests provide upper body support and aid in transfer.
The legs allow the seat height to be fine-tuned for optimal positioning. Front and rear legs adjust separately.

Clip the optional seat belt into the seat when needed by a particular user for safety or postural support. Remove it when not needed.
The stability feet enlarge the chair’s base of support. They are adjustable like the standard chair legs.
