Special Tomato MPS, Large

A forward-facing-only car seat that can also be adapted for use with other indoor and mobility seating products made by Bergeron Health Care, based in Dolgeville, NY.

Description

This car seat for children with special needs is for use by larger children (beginning at 80 pounds) and has much higher child weight and height limits than conventional models.  It has a plastic foundation that is customizable by choosing among various sizes, contours, and colors for the headrest, body, and seat cushion inserts to meet the child’s needs. While the foundation is a hard, high-impact plastic, the headrest, back, and seat cushions are made of latex-free material that is soft and malleable yet durable (withstanding deflating, cracking, and impermeable to fluids).
