Rifton Activity Chair Features

+No-tool adjustments

The Rifton Activity Chair makes adjustments simple. No tools are needed for any adjustment, making it an ideal choice for the busy special needs classroom.

+Adjust with child in chair

The Rifton Activity Chair can be easily adjusted while a child is in the chair. This saves time and makes adjustments much simpler to gauge.

The Rifton Activity Chair tilt–in–space feature encourages sit–to–stand and rest positions. The Hi/Lo base tilts 15° forward and 25° back. The Standard base tilts 15° forward and 15° back.
+Spring option
The optional springs on the Rifton Activity Chair allow for calming through self-stim. The spring column can be locked when not in use. The Hi/Lo base has an optional spring in the backrest, while the Standard base has optional springs in both backrest and seat, making it an ideal choice for children with autism.
+Arm support options
Choose between wooden armrests or forearm prompts based on the needs of your client. Wooden armrests can be height- and angle-adjusted. Forearm prompts are extremely versatile in adjustment to facilitate trunk and head control while sitting, and are identical to the arm prompts used on Rifton’s Pacer and Advancement Chair.
+Hi/Lo base foot pump
The large and medium Hi/Lo bases come with a foot pump for height adjustment. This allows you to lower the client until their feet are on the floor, or raise them to a 32″ high table. The chair’s height can also be easily set for lateral transfers. The small Hi/Lo base is equipped with a gas spring to serve the same function.
+Choice of 3 pad colors
The Rifton Activity Chair seat and backrest pads are made of polyurethane foam, with a polyurethane–coated fabric cover. The pads come in three choices to add color to your special needs classroom.
