Rifton, a leading American brand in the industry of medical equipment is continuously manufacturing equipment for different needs and people with different disabilities. All the products developed with Rifton provide longer durability and user-friendly experience. R860 activity chair is one of its equipment usable for people with sensory processing challenges. The adjustable parts make it an ideal solution for different height and shapes of people.  It is a useful equipment to involve clients in different activities including speech therapy, active learning and feeding.

In a few short years the Activity Chair has become the classroom standard for children and young adults with special positioning needs. Not only that, but parents who see what this chair can do in school are getting them for use at home. We’ve also seen a growing number of speech and feeding specialists adopt this chair in their hospital-based clinics. It’s safe to say the Activity Chair has truly revolutionized adaptive seating and continues to delight therapists with its versatility for people of all shapes and sizes, all conditions and special needs.

Activity Chair Features

Spring option The springs on the standard base (in both backrest and seat) allow for self-generated, dynamic motion – ideal for clients with autism. The spring column can be locked when not in use.

Caster swivel lock The swivel lock prevents the chair from drifting sideways when it is pushed for longer distances.

Perfect for the MOVE™ program

When used with forearm prompts, the Activity Chair becomes a forward-leaning instructional seating device as used in the MOVE™ program.

Transfers made easy

A chair for everything

The Activity Chair’s tilt-in-space feature allows easy transitions between forward leaning for task participation and unimpeded interaction, and reclining for rest or a higher level of support.

All Rifton Activity Chairs have tilt-in-space. Whether you choose the standard or hi/lo base, you’ll get Rifton’s quick-adjusting, tilt-in-space feature. The standard base tilts 15˚ forward and 15˚ back, while the hi/lo tilts 15˚ forward and 25˚ back. Tilt-in-space is a valuable feature because it encourages sit-to-stand and offers a variety of resting positions. Best of all, our tilt-in-space can be activated while your client is in the chair.

This medium standard chair is in posterior tilt to provide support for a student with poor head control.

The tilt-in-space feature accomodates users who need a higher degree of head support.

Infinitely adjustable for every need

The favorite of feeding clinics

Rifton’s Activity Chair can be either a basic chair for a client who needs just a little support, or it can offer signifi cant support for more involved individuals. The hi/lo base allows the client to be fed in a quiet, individual setting or at the family dinner table. Because you can measure the angle of the tilt-in-space and backrest recline, home caregivers can exactly duplicate the angles recommended by therapists.

Each size of Activity Chair has so much growth potential that it will provide many years of service. And it is easy to clean – essential for a feeding chair. The tray clips on and off with one hand.

Quickly adjustable tilt-in-space during feeding is benefi cial. Therapists may start out the session doing oral motor exercise with the client upright and then tilt back to reduce the need for trunk control. They can then adjust the headrest forward to keep the head in a neutral position. All these features make it the ideal feeding chair.
