Provides increased confidence and dignity
New and improved.
It’s the perfect inclusion chair. With its supportive seat, sturdy armrests and stable frame the new Compass Chair offers mildly involved students the support they need to feel secure and comfortable. At the same time its simple and elegant construction lets it blend easily into any classroom environment.
The five available sizes accommodate everyone from small children to adults, and the adjustable legs allow fine-tuning for optimal positioning.
- Seat and back have a non-slip texture for added security
- Two inches of height adjustment
- 5 sizes accommodate users of all ages
- Calming blue color and minimalist design blends in with other classroom chairs
- Provides support and sensory boundaries
“We have had trouble getting one of our students to sit even for a few moments, which, of course, makes learning very difficult. We’ve tried different seating options but nothing seemed to work. Imagine our surprise when he saw the Compass Chair for the first time and, entirely on his own, went and sat in it until we had to ask him to get up!”
Kathleen Marshall, Special Educator

Children with vestibular or tactile hyposensitivity may exhibit movement-seeking or sensory-seeking behavior. The Compass Chair is designed and tested to withstand continuous rocking movements.
Children with autism-spectrum disorder can benefit from gentle boundaries for emotional and sensory security. The raised sides of the seat together with the armrests provide reassuring physical borders for relaxed sitting.
Shorten the rear legs to add more recline, and assist a child to slide to the back of the seat with a gravity-assisted cue to remain seated in the chair. Shorten the front legs to add a forward tilt to contribute to postural control, access to a table or desk, and a more attentive, focused sitting position.
High armrests provide upper body support and aid in transfer.
The legs allow the seat height to be fine-tuned for optimal positioning. Front and rear legs adjust separately.
Clip the optional seat belt into the seat when needed by a particular user for safety or postural support. Remove it when not needed.
