The Kidz Sorrento lends itself easily to changing user needs and is above all else the ultimate in comfort for children with complex medical conditions.

The Kidz Sorrento is a simple to operate and functional chair which is designed to improve and maximise comfort as well as provide postural support and pressure management.

With its adaptability and effortless adjustability the Kidz Sorrento paediatric chair lends itself easily to the needs of growing kids or those with changing needs meaning their comfort, posture and pressure management remain uncompromised.  The Kidz Sorrento can also be readjusted to suit the needs of a new user which facilities its use in multi-user settings.

Clinical Benefit

Tilt in space can be used to improve posture, head control and redistribute pressure. This can also be converted to include forward tilt for self transferring situations. The adjustable back angle recline will accommodate children with limited hip flexion and when used in combination with tilt in space it can prevent sliding from the chair.

Optional lateral supports and supportive pillows can help to maintain or improve midline posture and facilitate function and engagement in activities of daily living such as eating and communicating and playing.  The correct use of these features and accessories can also reduce common problems such as falling to the side when seated.

The Kidz Sorrento has been used by those with the following disabilities and conditions:

  • Cerebral palsy.
  • Spinal cord injury.
  • Head injury.
  • Stroke.
  • Multiple sclerosis.
  • Parkinson’s disease.
