Special seats with tables for disabled people?
I'd like to ask if anyone knows anything about some special seats/wheelchairs for disabled people? I don't mean these simple wheelchairs with wheel to be carried on. I mean seats with, for instance, screwed tables, so that a person might do some things while sitting (like eating, using a computer while having the keyboard and mouse put on that table etc.). These seats are usually covered with upholstery, beneath which there is a soft sponge thanks to with it's comfortable enough for the person to sit in it even for long. Also, there usually is a footrest that sometimes could be regulated (that is, lowered down or heightened up, conveniently to the person's individual needs).
As you can see, I know how to describe such a seat, but it's much harder to find an example of one in a photo. I'd be really glad if anyone could mention any manufacturers making such sets, and where such seats are available (that is, mainly in the United States or, perhaps, also abroad).
I'd like to know such things about manufacturers because I myself am from Poland, and I'm not sure whether I could find any manufacturers here (so far it has been difficult to find anything) or ship it from abroad

If you looking for an adult type special needs activity chair, google Geri-Chair, you will find many links like the one below.
Also Rifton makes many adult size activity chairs.
Adaptive Mall has many special seating arrangements for children, teenagers, and small frame adults. I highly recommend the Special Tomato Activity Chair but it only fits up to teens.

Try looking for a site for an independant living centre. These will have resources on different equipment for people with disabilities.
I can give you the independant living centre site for australian.
There are quite a few manufacturers who do high needs chairs which have some level of customisation. These chairs usually come with a range of options and a pretty standard one is a tray.Source(s): Here's the site http://www.ilcaustralia.org.au/home/search3.asp?St... - this is a sample of what you can find. These are chairs that recline and tilt in space but you navigate around the site and have a look at other categories

What you need is a good handyman that can make things.
