Functional design

Not only do REAL seats blend in to their environment – they are also practical and useful. They are designed to empower users by allowing them to complete more tasks independently and safely, for longer periods of time. REAL chairs are designed to meet the needs of students with physical limitations, offering features such as adjustable height, various cushion options, tilt, a backrest, electric power, and a safety brake, all geared towards improving the user’s independence, safety, and comfort.

Powered control

REAL chairs are electrically powered. The electric power makes it possible to easily adjust the seat height and seat tilt allowing the user to achieve the posture and support they need. The smooth and precise adjustments provided by the electric power ensures that the user can easily achieve the desired position without standing up. Easy adjustments are particularly beneficial for individuals with limited mobility or physical challenges, allowing them to make adjustments independently.

Easy to use

REAL chairs are versatile and can be used throughout the school. REAL chairs can be adjusted to the height of any table or desk allowing students to work with their peers. The compact design of these chairs makes them an ideal choice for small or crowded spaces including classrooms. The large, easy rolling wheels and small size make it easy to move the chair from room to room, wherever the chair is needed.


Safety features, such as the brake mechanism in REAL Chairs, are crucial for providing users with a safe, secure, and stable experience, especially those with specific mobility needs or requiring extra support. 

The safety brake provides valuable assistance during transfers and daily activities. It allows users to maintain a safe and steady position while seated, providing security and reducing the risk of unintended chair movement.
