This Moti-Start portable supportive seat is ideal for babies and children who need extra postural support.

Our Moti-Start is the perfect supportive chair for children who need extra postural support.

Designed for infants and young children, it enables them to sit up, make eye contact and join in with their families.

The seating is easy to adjust as the child grows. It offers eight tilt positions, a moveable head rest and a tray that can be easily removed when not in use.

To ensure comfort and safety, Motivation's Moti-Start has padding, a contoured head rest and straps.

A carry handle, a front 'tow' strap and small rear wheels allow parents and caregivers to easily move the seat when the child is not in it.

The chair can be used indoors or outdoors, but is designed for use on a large flat surface - whether that's in the home, at school or on a family visit. 

While not in use, this lightweight chair can be folded easily for storage and transportation.

Charity and her Moti-Start

Charity's Moti-Start was her first supportive chair! She's now able to sit upright, ensuring she can eat and play. Vitally, this early intervention means that her growth and development are supported. 

The first time her parents saw her sitting in her Moti-Start, they were delighted:

"The one thing that we will never forget is that, when she received her first wheelchair, Charity looked so excited and happy. We all did.

"I will not worry about my daughter so much as I used to be."
