Multiseat seating system by Jenx
As with all Jenx Products, The Multiseat Seating System has been created alongside therapists and carers to make sure it meets everyone’s
needs. Offering highly flexible supported seating to children from around 8 years right through to adults, and up to 100kg, this is just the
start of the fantastic amount of versatility provided by the Multiseat. The contoured seat unit, with memory foam insert, provides unparalleled comfort and the perfect base for true pelvic stability. The two piece back with independent lumbar support gives support exactly where it’s needed, and with both the back and seat units available in two sizes to mix and match as you need, each Multiseat system can be
configured specifically to meet the proportions of the child or adult using it. A wide variety of head, trunk, leg and foot support options allow
you to exactly customise every Multiseat to any individual user, whilst the deliberately open design ensures you can quickly see precisely
how they are positioned each and every time!
Created with significant input from parents, the Multiseat has been carefully designed to draw attention to the user rather than the piece of
equipment, making the child the star of the show! The Multiseat is a truly modular product – meaning you can choose exactly what you
need for every individual child or adult and pay for just that, saving you money and giving you control. All this in addition to the adjustable
back angle, tilt in space, innovative leg control options and a choice of coloured covers mean the Jenx Multiseat really does tick every box
for maximum functionality, flexibility, style and value!
Control System Contoured seating with memory foam seat pad, independently adjustable lumbar/sacral support, a 4 point lapstrap and fully adjustable hip pads, all available as standard, provide optimal pelvic control. Plus the optional ischial bar will help prevent those very floppy or very active users from slipping into sacral sitting.
Back Angle Adjustment
From 25° recline through to 10° prone, use this feature to create the required hip angle for the optimum seating position for each user.
Leg Control Pads
Use one, two or even four, these unique leg control pads allow you to control leg position independently of pelvic position, creating abduction or adduction or controlling windsweeping. They are simple to adjust and flip completely out of the way to achieve smooth and easy transfers.
Adjustable Seat Depth
To ensure the fit is exactly right for each user, the seat depth is fully adjustable from 285mm (min) on the size 4 to 520mm (max) on the size 5.
To accommodate fixed knee flexion or tight hamstrings, the angle adjustable footpost can also be used to give an extra stretch where needed, and even to achieve prone sitting and/or to help break tonal or extensor patterns.
Flip Away Angle-Adjustable Footplate
To accommodate or encourage dorsi or plantar flexion, adjustable quickly and simply with the turn of a button, flips up and is held in place by magnets.
PU Support Pads
Available in a range of sizes with easy, flip away action for trunk, hip and leg support, all pads are made from PU. Fully flexible, easy to clean and impervious to fluids – these supports are simple, hygienic and robust
Adjustable Back Height
From 465mm (min) on the size 4 to 660mm (max) on the size 5, as your child grows, the Multiseat range grows with them!
With the Z base offering easy, battery-free height adjustment, the Multiseat gives flexibility for each user to engage with activities at every level alongside their peers
Ease of Transfer
Users transfer into supported seating in a variety of ways. The open design of the Multiseat, and the fact that every support pad and accessory is designed to quickly and easily flip away without being removed means transferring can be done simply and easily and with dignity. In addition, with the tilt-in-space engaged, the Multiseat gives maximum opportunities to optimise each user’s seating position first time, every time – no matter how they are transferring.
The Multiseat has two options for head support and positioning – an oval headrest for children who require minimal support and the Multigrip™ head rest for more complex requirements. The original Jenx Multigrip™ headrest is a unique design with individual “fingers” that are adjusted to cushion, support and control almost any head position. Highly padded, removable and washable covers make Jenx Multigrip™ head supports a practical solution for almost any child.
Multigrip™ head supports are available in a range of different sizes, all including a choice of highly flexible fixing bracket, giving adjustment for height, depth and angle. Through this combination there is scope to block areas that may otherwise pose a hazard to children prone to getting their heads stuck beneath more conventional headrest designs.
The Jenx waistcoat harness is a specific trunk harness in a range of sizes to work across the entire range of Jenx seating products. Providing firm and gentle trunk support to children with low tone, the Jenx waistcoat harness is easy for carers to use – made to attach, detach and flip away in seconds with a single hand. The zip is purposefully installed upside down, allowing access to abdominal feeding sites while maintaining good upper trunk control. A soft fabric surface against the child, with a wipe-clean front, make it both effective and practical for positioning support and for during feeding.
Pelvic stability is an absolute requirement in achieving good posture and function in a seated position. The Multiseat’s combination of contoured seat with memory foam seat pad, independently adjustable lumbar/sacral support, a 4 point lapstrap and fully adjustable hip pads all available as standard provide optimal pelvic control. Plus the optional ischial bar will help prevent those very floppy or very active users from slipping into sacral sitting.
The Z-base of the Multiseat provides easy, battery free height adjustment, enabling users to engage with activities at every level alongside their peers.
The Multiseat can be used with or without a footpost and footplate. For users with the need to support the feet, the angle adjustable footpost is perfect to accommodate fixed knee flexion or tight hamstrings. It can also be used to give an extra stretch where needed, and even to facilitate prone sitting and/or to help break tonal or extensor patterns. Use the footplate to accommodate or encourage dorsi or plantar flexion by adjusting quickly and simply with the turn of a button.
