x:panda is a multi-adjustable dynamic seat, delivered in 4 different sizes – each seat with up to 10 cm in seat width and depth adjustment coupled with sliding backgrowth. The back is dynamic, making it possible for the child to extend and push back against relatively light resistance and then regain the desired sitting position. The back is lockable which could be preferred in feeding situations and required when being used in transportation. The back can also be angled to make it possible to seat the child with either an open or closed hip angle.
The Panda Futura is a modular seating system for both indoor and outdoor use. The Panda Futura seat is available in two different versions: Standard and Active. The Standard seat is primarily for children with the need of support around arms and shoulders. The Active seat is for the active children who need more freedom of movement. The Panda Futura Standard is available in 5 sizes accommodating children aged approx. 1 to 12 years. The Panda Futura is available in 4 sizes as an Active version and will accommodate children aged approx. 1 to 12 years.

The Panda Futura size 5 can be mounted on the Combi Frame:x, Strong Base, High-low:x indoor and outdoor frames depending on the use of the seat.

Triton Seating System
The Triton seating system has been specifically designed to accommodate the needs of those users with extensive and complex requirements. A split seat as standard ensures leg length discrepancy is precisely supported, and the option of uniquely designed dynamic components means that even those users with powerful extensor patterns can maintain their optimum seating position.
The dynamic feature in the back rest is controlled via air pressure, for both the rate at which it opens under pressure from the user, as well as the rate at which it returns to its default position. These features give the Triton a controlled, gentle movement with the flexibility to meet any changing needs of the user as they grow or their presentation changes.

2 Point Padded Hip Belt
The Bodypoint® range of hip belts or pelvic positioning belts are created with the user in mind. Proper positioning of the pelvis is essential for daily functions, effective pressure distribution, and of course for comfort.
Thoughtful design features of the Bodypoint® belts include – rounded edges on buckles so that these do not snag clothing, stain-proof extra-strength straps, and patented laminar pads covered with wrinkle-free material for a smooth and comfortable fit. Using rigorously tested materials, metal buckles and strong mountings, these belts won’t let you down.
NEW Bodypoint Ankle Huggers® offer the right fit every time with a low profile ergo-latch buckle and easy hook and loop adjustment. The material is designed to resist dirt and ingress from getting trapped. Soft, wrinkle-free edges are kind on the skin. Contrasting colour stitching helps identify the flexible end-tab which enables quick fastening.
i2i Head and Neck Support
For those with a great deal of extensor tone, but poor head control, the i2i provides lateral and posterior support, so that when individuals begin to extend their necks they will be gently invited back into a midline position. The sub-occipital and integrated low profile occipital components of the i2i provide posterior support and set a limit to cervical extension, while also offering a resting spot.
Individuals with poor head control can have trouble interacting with people who are out of their eye line; the i2i counteracts this by gently positioning the head so that users can see straight ahead. Other individuals may experience difficulty chewing and swallowing due to their poor head control and often find this becomes much easier with an i2i head support.
