The Chair Adapter
Currently, sitting at the dinner table can be an uncomfortable and tiring activity for young children:
Due to their small size, children often sit too low at tables, making eating needlessly difficult and messy.
- Pins and Needles
Children’s feet don’t reach the ground, leaving little legs to dangle. This can lead to leg pain, pins and needles and numbness.
The inability of young children to reach their chair’s backrest also leads to slouching and back pain.
With no foot support on which to gain purchase, children exert more effort staying upright in their chairs. This effort increases when they can’t lean back in her chair to take advantage of the back rest.
