---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To provide a custom adaptation of the Rawson Adjustable Chair and Table for a child with spinal muscular atrophy type II. Made to dimensions to suit each individual client, the Rawson provides seating for children who need to maintain an upright and stable posture. The seat, armrest and table height can be adjusted in 25 millimeter increments so the child can have the optimum position for play, eating and learning activities over several years. For example, the set can be adjusted so the child always has their feet flat on the floor. This can minimize the effort required to keep them selves upright, making it easier to focus on the activity at hand. This child has started to develop a scoliosis, so her therapist has also added thoracic fins to the back of her seat to assist her to sit upright. The child uses the Rawson set during the day and when friends come over. It provides a good space for drawing and painting and allows for other children to sit on the on the floor with her to be on the same level, and if sitting in chairs it can be adjusted up a bit.
