HIGHCHAIR WITH OPENING FROM THE SIDE

Highchair appropriate for children whose parents sit in a wheelchair.

DESCRIPTION

The highchair opens from the side. The height of the wheelchair and the highchair are about the same. A parent who sits in a wheelchair and has the child on his or her lap can slide the child sideways into the highchair and avoid heavy lifting.

The chair is called “Stokke Sitti” and can be used and adjusted as the child grows. The stomach support and fabric strap on the side can be removed and the chair is washable.

TIPSTER’S COMMENTS

The chair can be opened from the side which makes it easier to use, since the user does not have to lift up the child. Used the chair since the child was about 6 months or from the time that the child can sit.

The buckle can be a bit difficult to open for a person with impaired hand strength or function.

If the chair seems expensive it can probably be purchased second-hand.

EDITOR’S COMMENTS

This tip is from 2007 and unfortunately this chair is no longer sold, but a used chair can probably be found. BabyBjörn sells a model that opens from the side (written 2015).
