Firefly – GoTo Seat – The Adjustable Seats for Kids with Special Needs

 

What is the GoTo Seat?

The Firefly GoTo seat is a safe, supportive, lightweight, portable seat designed to provide additional upper body postural support for children with disabilities.

Firefly is a division of Leckey (www.leckey.com), a company known worldwide for making postural equipment for children with special needs. However Firefly’s unique focus is special needs family participation, which provides a perfect match for the GoTo seat. The GoTo seat was originally designed by Cerebra (a UK charity for children with neurological conditions) as a seat for use in supermarket trolleys. With the desire to improve the seat further, Cerebra chose Firefly by Leckey to develop the GoTo seat so that it could be used for more than grocery shopping.

They launched the new GoTo seat in 2015. GoTo can still be used for all the same great activities (sitting at the dinner table, swings at the park and grocery shopping), but is now also suitable for bigger kids, is much more adjustable, and has a choice of more supportive headrests as well as a Floorsitter attachment.

What is the GoTo Pressure Relief Cushion?

 The GoTo Pressure Relief cushion accessory is a contoured low pressure relieving cushion designed to provide your child with more postural support and comfort whilst seated in their GoTo seat. The cushion is available in two sizes: size 1 and size 2. The cushion can be easily attached by Velcro to the GoTo seat and has a non slip material on the bottom to ensure it will not move whilst your child is transferring on/ off the seat. The cushion has a detachable roll which can be used to provide support; under your child’s knees during long sitting, at their lower back or as a pommel to prevent their legs from crossing.

Who can use the GoTo Seat?

The GoTo seat has been designed for children with disabilities ranging from approximately 1-8 years. Children with cerebral palsy who use the GoTo seat may range from levels III – V on the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS). The particular symptoms of a child’s disability will affect the length of time the seat can be used for, and the surface on which it is placed. Children with head control will be able to use the GoTo seat for longer periods than children who are developing their head control.

 

Setting up your GoTo Seat with or without GoTo Pressure Relief Cushion

 The GoTo Seat must be attached to a hard-backed chair, floorsitter attachment or similar support structure for stability and safety at all times. If the GoTo Pressure Relief Cushion is used, this may allow your child to sit for longer periods of time in their seat, than what they could without it. The cushion is a perfect addition for use on long flights. The GoTo Seat must be securely attached to a rigid and stable support by using all of the attachment straps. The child should not be placed in the GoTo seat if its support is not stable. If the GoTo Pressure Relief Cushion is being used, ensure the cushion is securely fastened to the GoTo Seat by the velcro strap. Ensure the pommel through the cushion before placing the child into the seat. Be aware of your child’s abilities, and observe your child at all times.
