New to the Adaptivemall.com from Columbia Medical®, the Spirit™ Adjustable Positioning System™ (APS™) Car Seat is unique to the special needs car seat market by being the first car seat offering swing away trunk and hip supports. The exceptional positioning options that the reclining Spirit™ APS™ car seat offer liken the trunk and head support features to that of a more intricate and custom designed wheelchair seating and positioning system. Please note: The Columbia Medical® Spirit™ Adjustable Positioning System™ (APS™) Car Seat requires the use of the Dual Hook Tether Strap for an up charge to ensure safe and proper use. ONE Tether HOOK is required for users between 25 & 79 pounds. BOTH Tether HOOKS are required for users between 80 & 130 pounds.For children with special needs that are unable to sit upright without support, the Columbia Medical® Spirit™ Adjustable Positioning System™ (APS™)Car Seat provides cushioned support as well as a recline bar feature to increase postural stability for children with mild to more severe physical involvement. The Spirit™ (APS™) Car Seat special needs car seat is positioned at 98 degrees from the upright, offering a slight recline for children with minimum trunk involvement. With the standard recline bar, the recline angle increases an additional 30 degrees from the upright for maximum head and trunk support for children with special needs who are unable to hold their head and trunk upright without assistance.
The low profile cushioned wall supports facilitate easy transfers in and out of the special needs car seat. The optional swing away bracket mechanisms (sold separately) can be outfitted with varying sized positioning pads (also sold separately) to increase the amount of support provided at the trunk and pelvis for unparalleled postural stability.
