Description
A seat from the Ikea highchair Antilop was installed on a frame with castors. The height of the frame is adjustable and it has an electric brake. Initially, the frame was part of an assistive device for children.

Users comments
The chair has been very useful, but if I were to do it over I would have chosen a top portion where the highchair seat could be opened. The way it is now, my child has to help out when being lifted in and out at each meal.

Made by
