Krabat Jockey Lite

In short

Krabat Jockey Lite is the newest addition to the range of active childrens chairs from Krabat. The child is seated on a saddle with his/her legs apart. The spread position for the lower part of the body and the footrests provides a stable position for the pelvis, and reduces the need for upper body support. A saddle sitting position provides many physiological benefits.

The chair gives the child considerable mobility and variation. Krabat Jockey Lite has a compact and modern design that takes up little space and allows it to fit in even where space is limited. The compact design draws attention to the child and not the chair.

Krabat Jockey Lite is height adjustable and can be easily be adjustet and operated.

Krabat Jockey Lite has a seamless range of hight between 44 - 57cm from floor to seat. This means that the chair easily can be adjusted to fit underneath tabletops and desks. The chair is delivered with a rotationlock, and may be equipped with wheels or knobs depending of what the users needs. If needed, the chair may be delivered with a higher lifting column to expand the range of hight.

The seat is designed to prevent the pelvis of spastic children moving forwards. The top of the seat prevents the thighs from being trapped underneath the table. The seat has an integrated cup holder. The textile materials are durable and machine washable. Stains can easily be removed with a cloth. The seat and back of the chair can accommodate a SWASH orthosis for children who require this.

The saddle seat is detachable, and a larger seat can easily be fitted on the same undercarriage as the child grows. The chair is available in black, while the textiles are available in many different colours. A complete colour chart is available at www.krabat.no.

Krabat Jockey Lite is suitable for children with a variety of diagnoses and has many possibilities for adaptation. The Krabat Jockey Lite chair is mainly used by children with a CP or Down Syndrom diagnosis. The chair is available in two sizes, which combined cover the requirements of children from the age of 2-15 years. The chair can easily be adjusted without using tools to find the optimum sitting position. There are several optional positioning accessories like on the Krabat Jockey. 

The back rests and seats of the two chair sizes can easily be replaced, for example, it is possible to have a large seat with a small back rest, etc. For exact measurements and options, please see the measurement chart.

Krabat Jockey Lite is not a chair for resting in, but a chair for activities and social participation.

Anatomical benefits

Krabat Jockey Lite provides the child with a balanced and safe sitting position with dynamic postural control which enables the child to move freely.

The sitting position gives optimal joint stability and comfort. The two articular surfaces in the hip joint have maximum contact in the sitting position.

The sitting position can prevent complications such as muscle contractures, hip pain and subluxations may be prevented.

All major joints in the lower extremities become centered, which promotes normal muscle tone and muscle length. This is particularly important for the adductors, which are often tight in children with spasticity.

The back can work actively in its natural curvature. The saddle seat can be adjusted to allow the pelvis to be placed/tilted in the correct position, giving the child’s back optimum working conditions.

The saddle seat enhance an active seting position rather than a passive.
