We have bought a few of these for students - we still have a problem we can't solve- more than one student needs some type of support to help keep him:her arms in a forward: functional position/ - is there anything to help do that?

Hi Mary,

Thank you for your question. Rifton does offer a pair of “forearm” supports as part of the advancement chair to help keep a child in a forward functional position. The additional optional anterior tilt of the chair helps with this functionality.
