Krabat Jockey

In short

Krabat Jockey is an active children’s chair 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 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.

The chair is extremely lightweight and foldable for easy transportation. A separate bag is available as an optional item.

Krabat Jockey is height adjustable and can be adjusted from floor level up to a height that exceeds a normal kitchen worktop. Height adjustments are easily operated by pressing a button that is integrated in the handle. This replaces the traditional levers and push handles. The chair is easy to operate even for inexperienced assistants.

Krabat Jockey is also available with electric elevation and lowering mechanisms. Movement is controlled with a simple remote control. The battery is rechargeable and lasts for many days of regular usage. Krabat Jockey with an electric elevation and lowering mechanism is only marginally heavier than the manual Krabat Jockey, and it has the same elegant appearance. Krabat can convert a manual Krabat Jockey chair into one that facilitates electric elevation and lowering.

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, doubling as a mounting base for a table (optional equipment). 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 two colours (black or white), while the textiles are available in many different colours. A complete colour chart is available at www.krabat.no.

Krabat Jockey is suitable for children with a variety of diagnoses and has many possibilities for adaptation. The chair is available in two sizes, which combined cover the requirements of children from the age of 2-14 years. The angle of the seat and backrest, and height and position of the footrests can easily be adjusted without using tools to find the optimum sitting position. All angles and positions can be set infinitely. Each footrest can be adjusted individually. A hip belt and footrests with straps are included as standard accessories. A chest harness, waistcoats, footrest-in-one, ancle cuffs, and a table and bag are available as optional equipment.

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.

To fully benefit from the chair, the child should have some stability in the upper body, however independent sitting function is not necessary.

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

Anatomical benefits

Krabat Jockey 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.
