Question: It has been suggested that my 7-year-old nephew could benefit from an OrthoSeat 2, manufactured in Holland . Do you have additional information on this product and can it be purchased in North America ? ~Marylyn
Answer: The OrthoSeat is a multi-use chair designed to support those with bad backs while sitting. It is especially useful for people who suffer discomfort when driving or sitting for long periods, those with sciatica, who are pregnant or other lower back pain. The OrthoSeat design supports your back in a comfortable sitting position by thrusting your shoulders back, and tilting you pelvis and taking the stress off of your tailbone. The OrthoSeat is constructed of moldable wooden slats that hug any body type and the seat cover is made of comfortable and resilient Sherpa wool. OrthoSeats can be rolled into a shoulder carrying tote or laid flat for transport.
You didn't mention whether your nephew will need the OrthoSeat in his wheelchair or not, but the best way to find out if this product is adaptable for use with wheelchairs and about pricing is to contact OrthoSeat directly. They have a contact link at the bottom of their homepage at www.orthoseat.com.
Best of luck and I hope this information is of help.
