AbstractAn adaptation for a chair for the physically handicapped comprises a special shoulder support arrangement which is connected to the back of the chair. A headrest is provided on the shoulder support and overlaps a portion of the back. A recess is defined below the headrest and along the shoulder support to receive and support a shoulder of a person sitting on the chair supporting their lean to that side. The headrest is mounted on the shoulder support in a manner to provide for vertical height adjustment of the headrest relative to the seat to accommodate varying shoulder heights of persons using the chair. This type of adaptation encourages the physically handicapped to use their own muscles to sit up in the chair. The attachment is particularly suitable to people who are suffering from deteriorating muscular conditions as well as victims of organic brain syndromes such as Alzheimer's disease.
