Spreaders for chair legsA schoolgirl with ataxic cerebral palsy, limited mobility and limited understanding, is preferred by her occupational therapist and by the school to use standard school equipment where possible. Because her movements are uncontrolled she tends to tip her chair backward.

A ‘spreader’ was fitted to the rear legs of the chair which now makes it impossible for the girl to tip it backwards.

She is not now in danger of harming herself and also, by the use of a standard school chair, it reduces the impression of difference from the other pupils.
