Children living with mild to moderate mobility impairment in North American can now participate in daily activities in comfort, support and ease with the Scallop by R82, that enjoys great popularity in Europe. This comfortable take-everywhere portable seating unit is made up of a flexible shell that is held together with Velcro that can be used for long sitting. The Scallop can be attached to a chair or used by itself. When not in use, it packs into an attractive tote bag.
The Scallop can be purchased by calling 844 US MOBILITY (844-876-6245) and comes in four sizes and multiple reversible colors. R82 Convaid is offering a 20% off Early Bird Scallop promotion through March 31, 2017, to celebrate the product’s launch in the United States and Canada. The offer is valid for one Scallop per family.
The Scallop encourages active participation, is good for early intervention, stimulates balance without preventing movement, enables users to sit on a chair, provides tactile stimulation and improved seating alignment and enables long sitting. For many Scallop users, it is the first time they are able to sit at a dining table in a typical chair.
