Autism and Special Needs Furniture

Universal/accessible design of the home from an occupational therapy and a construction perspective. This blog is part of a quest for cool, convenient, functional design that makes life safer, easier, and as maintenance-free as possible. It's about the lifestyle.
I just discovered this site on special needs furniture.  This furniture looks as though it would be a great choice for positioning and calming for someone with special needs.  

This furniture is a great sensory integration tool for someone with autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit disorder.
What sets our furniture apart from other designers is the unique engineering that goes into the support system in our furniture. The process begins by applying a one of a kind cutting method for the polyurethane foam that acts as the backbone for our furniture. This patented process cuts the foam into specific multi-sided dimensions, creating air spaces around the pieces that gives a loft of comfort as well as a “zero pressure point” feel. We don't add any additional chemicals to any of our products, and the foam is out-gassed during the cutting process, so our furniture works well for chemically sensitive individuals. Our furniture is then covered in only the highest grade synthetic fabrics to ensure durability for years of use. Our furniture will never go flat because fluffing enriches and returns it to its original shape even after years of usage. Our furniture can even be customized for firmness and support to satisfy any special needs!
