Careflex Smart Seat Small

The SmartSeat Small is the revolutionary new pediatric specialist seating design from CareFlex.

It is designed for children who require a combination of comfort, pressure management and specific support and positioning for posture control.

This chair will grow with the child due to it’s adjustability and range of complementary accessories.

What sets the SmartSeat apart from others in the industry?

  • A stowable footplate is an integral part of the legrest which can be stowed away so that the occupant can easily raise to standing or rest their legs on the legrest in complete comfort
  • Floating-tracking technology in the legrest is a unique system controlling the legrest angle and the extension which allows the legrest to track the movement of the lower legs as they pivot on the knee joint
  • Using technology first developed by the automotive industry, the SmartSeat has a simple width adjustment which can be adjusted without the need for tools, swapping parts or the removal of trim or upholstery panels.  The seat width adjustment does not affect the look and feel of the chair.  Support remains consistent and gaps and openings don’t appear with the width adjustment.
  • The SmartSeat has three seat height settings to allow the chair to be configured to the user for raising to stand and a safe transfer.
  • The main panels of the chair are made from EPP (Expanded Polypropene) which is a light but tough material which is moulded into shape.  Material consumption is reduced and at the end of its serviceable life the EPP can be extracted and recycled. The use of J-Strips allow the covers to be removed easily and fitted with a guaranteed consistency of finish, the covers are fitted in the right place and with the correct tension each and everytime.
