About Tomcat Science Chairs




Tomcat Science Chairs

The Tomcat Science Chairs have been designed for pupils in mainstream education with wide ranging special needs and they are particularly suited to restricted growth conditions.
Their unique design allows most ambulant and semi-ambulant pupils of 80cm and above to sit independently. Therefore Carer assistance is normally limited to setup, transport and storage only.
Tomcat Science Chair’s versatility and interchangeable accessories mean that a pupil can use the same chair from primary school right through to University. Similarly it can be changed to suit the differing needs of an entirely new pupil.
Non-slip feet ensure it cannot strike out unexpectedly but when moving is necessary, a flick of a lever lifts the chair onto independent castors which enable easy movement between locations. Retractable step and footrest features make the Science Chair easy to store when not in use.
The Tomcat Science Chair combines excellent postural support with an office style, that is very popular with pupils and its innovative technology has seen the Science Chair earn a prestigious DTI SMART Award for technical innovation.
