FAQs

What’s the difference between a sitter and an MPS?

The MPS (Multi Positioning Seat) is for children who require more support when seating. Lateral support and an abductor are included. The cushions are adjustable in height on the rigid seat shell and an extended seat cushion is available as your child grows. The MPS can be used attached to a chair, on the mobile base, with the push chair or as a car seat. The Special Tomato Sitter is a seat for children who need less support when sitting. The seat is one piece and offers less adjustment. The Sitter can be attached to a chair or used on the tilt or mobile tilt wedge base. It can also fit into some strollers for extra support.

What’s the difference between the EIO and the Jogger?

The EIO Push Chair is made to look like a juvenile stroller, but with the features of a special needs stroller. The EIO has 4 wheels, while the Jogger has 3. The Jogger is designed for more rough terrain. It can be used while parents are jogging or while riding along rougher terrain. Both strollers offer superior support while your child is riding along.

Material Soft, Skin-Like, and Durable Firm and Plastic-Like Sitters are peel and tear resistant and do not crack.
What is the material like? Is it soft and squishy like a tomato? How much support does it offer?

The material on the Special Tomato products is soft-to-the-touch. An outer skin prevents the products from peeling or tearing. This outer skin also does not allow liquids to penetrate and has a built in Antimicrobial protection and is Latex-Free. It is not like a traditional plastic skin. It is smooth and children’s skin does not stick to the seat. The inner portion of the Special Tomato is molded foam that is squeezable. This allows for children to sit comfortably for longer periods of time. Different products provide different amounts of support. Please see individual product pages for more information.
