A strong solution is needed for children, young people and adults with physical and neurological disabilities – so that they are always safe in the car.
Special Needs & Adaptive booster seat that grows with your child for years
For children, young people and adults who weigh between 40 lbs and 176.4 lbs (18.1 and 80 kg) AND whose height ist between 51.1 and 70.9" / 130 and 180 cm. Person must always be secured with vehicle's 3-point safety belt. Integrated 5-point harness provides positioning support only.
Hercules Prime US has its great performance when adaptive car seats have become too small or more support is needed when sitting in the car. As a modular positioning booster seat that grows with the user, it offers the familiar functions of our special needs car seats and can be very individually adapted with a large selection of accessories that grow with the user. When more support for the head and upper body is needed, a simple belt system in the car is not enough. For a good, safe sitting position on every journey.
Pioneer since 1988
Thomashilfen has been providing children with special needs with adapted car seats for over 30 years. Today we also use our know-how to develop our own special needs booster seats for children, young persons and adults. They incorporate all our many years of experience around the needs of users and their relatives.
The adaptive booster seat can be quickly folded to a small, handy size in a few simple steps. This not only facilitates installation in the vehicle. – The positioning booster seat can also be easily transported in small car trunks and can be stowed away to save space.
Swivel and tilting function
Tilting function up to 10° provides more seating comfort for users with weak upper body control. Swivel function facilitates transfer for users and care givers. Booster seat rotates to the right side only.
Slim and broad users with a shoulder width of 42 to 51 cm / 16.5 to 20.1" sit well supported at all times. The shoulder guides (accessory) grow with the user and are infinitely variable and individually adjustable for each side - even asynchronously.
Hercules Prime US meets the needs of children, young people and adults with following clinical pictures, who are not able to sit freely and independently: cerebral palsy, autism, hypotony syndrome of unspecific genesis, muscular dystrophy & different diseases.
