New R82 Scallop seat for disabled children proves highly popular


Scallop kidsThe new Scallop seat from R82 UK, a world-leading specialist in assistive products for disabled children, is delivering significant benefits for children and their families as recently highlighted on ITV News.

The Scallop from R82 is a lightweight and portable seating solution that assists children of all ages who require additional support when sitting on the floor or in a chair. Suited for children with GMFCS level 1 – 3, it consists of a folding fabric structure and simple strapping that is adjustable and offers wrap-around ‘shell-like’ postural support for children with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and Spina Bifida.

Originally designed by talented Swansea university student Keira Gwynn, the Scallop has been developed by R82 in close collaboration with users, families and therapists. It provides extra stability for children when sitting, along with tactile stimulation and reassurance, and facilitates increased occupational performance.
