- The seat is adjustable to a low height of 34cm and the seat depth and backrest height accordingly for small children as young as four year olds.
- The continuous adjustment of the seat height, seat depth and backrest height allows the Triton to literally grow with the child into her teenage years.
Ergonomics of the Triton Chair
Seat Height Adjustment
The seat height has an adjustable range of 34-47 cm and is adjusted correctly when thighs are at a right angle with the lower legs, and forearms resting parallel on the table top. Use a footrest or a ideally height adjustable table so that the child’s feet rest flat on the floor surface; the pressure of the full body load is evenly distributed on the thighs and the buttocks, reducing the strain on the lower back.
Seat Depth Adjustment
The seat depth has an adjustable range of 29-39cm. Adjust the seat depth according to the length of the thighs. Allow for a gap of 3-4cm between the edge of the seat and the inner side of the knee of the child when she is seated with her back resting against the backrest. This important for blood circulation and reduces the risk of cramps while seated for long periods.
The backrest is height-adjustable with a range of 10cm to supports the back of the child. Adjust the backrest in such a way that the backrest has contact with the back of the person sitting in upright position. The depth of the seat should be completely used without the feet being lifted from the floor. In such a position, the spinal column is best supported. Then you are sitting without a round back because the natural double-S contour of the spinal column is supported in each sitting position.
