The CAPS II seat encourages a normal sequence of motor development by providing the opportunity to experience a symmetrical balanced sitting posture. This, in turn, will lead onto the development of the ability to move the upper body forwards and backwards. This is the first stage in the development of sitting ability.
The seat provides postural security for people with low physical ability by helping them achieve a balanced posture (with pelvis and shoulder control). This security enables head and arm movement without loss of sitting balance.
It offers the therapist and rehabilitation engineer the opportunity to help their clients actually improve their overall postural ability, whilst providing a highly functional sitting position for the user.
