    Pics- Special needs seats and stretcher harness

    Our model is Tyler. He is 10 years old, 71 lbs, 54" tall and has a 19" torso. He just outgrew the Regent a few months back.

    First is the TheraPedic 2000.

    This seat harnesses from 20-102 lbs. Both the TheraPedic 2000 and the 2500(40-130 lbs) have high sides, side head rests. You can adjust the harness in the back and fine tune it on the front. The crotch strap is also adjustable.

    2000
    Tyler is at the top slot of this seat and his shoulders are squished.





    2500
    Tyler had room to grow. Quite a bit, actually.







    These are not squishy seats. They have little padding and are very straight. L corners.

    The Merritt Roosevelt harnesses 35 - 115 lbs. Tyler actually has this seat. He has a lot of grow room. Shane Merritt worked at Britax and worked on the Regent. This is reflected in the Roosevelt.

    A head rest comes with the seat. You can get a pommel (well, all different sizes and firmness), side supports, and two different seat extenders. If the child does not have as much head control, a zelcro cap can be added.

    I will work on getting more pics of this seat.



    It can be installed long or short belt path.
