Special Tomato Out & About Seat


The Special Tomato Out & About Seat is ready to go when you are!

When you’re out and about, and someone in your group has special needs, it’s not always easy to be inclusive when it comes to seating arrangements. In sports stadiums, movie theatres, at concerts, school, your favorite neighborhood restaurant and even at your own kitchen table, people who require postural support to sit for any length of time probably can’t sit where everyone else is sitting. Sometimes, it even limits their ability to participate. How many times have you heard or said, “they can’t go, they can’t sit that long in those seats”?

Until Now! Special Tomato has created the Out & About Seat (OAS) that provides comfortable upper body support using a padded, adjustable 8-Point Harness System and height adjustable Headrest. It will change where your family member with special needs can take a seat and remain comfortably seated while out with family and friends. The Special Tomato OAS can be attached to most standard, stable chairs that have a minimum seat back height of 14”. Once the child is properly seated, the 3-Point Pelvic Harness and 5-Point Chest Harness help to maintain a stable well-aligned position of the pelvis and trunk. Slots are available at 5 different heights on the base fabric back for the threading of shoulder straps. This ensures proper angle of pull and accommodates for growth of the child. The adjustable height headrest promotes a midline position of the head. When a child is properly supported in a well-aligned upright sitting position, energy that would have gone to squirming to get comfortable or just to maintain a sitting position can now go to attending to and participating in the experience they can be included in.

The Out & About Seat (OAS) can also be used to provide additional postural support to strollers, trolleys, pushchairs and some ADA Compliant swings provided that all OAS attachment straps can be securely tightened to the frame of the seat.

Do you think more support is needed? The Optional Special Tomato Soft-Touch Liners that you’ve come to know and trust can be integrated into this system! These contoured seat and back cushions are made from a proprietary blend of non-toxic, latex-free materials. They are soft, lightweight and extremely durable. Seamless, impermeable to fluids but breathable, microbe resistant, peel and tear resistant, they are easily wiped clean. Contours enhance lateral (side) support, promote good posture and improve comfort by providing a large surface area for the distribution of pressure. Seat Cushions are available in sizes 2-4. Back Cushions are available in Sizes 1-4. These cost-effective cushions are easily replaced to accommodate growth.

AND the lightweight, easy to clean OAS is easily folded (even with optional seat and back liners) and is equipped with backpack straps to allow for hands free transport! A perfect portable package for families on the go!

Our Therapists recommend the Special Tomato Soft-Touch Liners for a child with mild to moderate sitting support needs.

The Soft-Touch Liner offers an affordable alternative to other seating systems. It eliminates the need to transport heavy seating systems. The Soft-Touch Liner is made of a soft-to-touch material that is latex-free and anti-microbial. The contoured seat and back cushions promote good posture while sitting in a standard seating system for children with mild to moderate positioning needs. The seat and back cushions can be used separately or together.

The Soft-Touch Liners can be attached to most seating systems including but not limited to the following: the NEW Special Tomato Out & About Seat , dining room chairs, restaurant chairs, classroom chairs, office chairs, strollers and wheelchairs.

Here’s what people are saying:


The two cushions of the Soft-Touch Liner can be attached together for storage using the attachment straps. Keep them in the trunk of your car so it there when you need them!
