Little Lento Children’s Care Chair

Little Lento is part of our very own range of care chairs. The design has been carefully adapted from our famous Lento care chair, giving Little Lento all the flexibility and clinical benefits of the adult model, but scaled down for paediatric care and small adults. The specialist seating solution that works for almost anyone under 5ft 2in (1.6m)!

Available with or without an assessment. Available from stock.


Little Lento is the versatile care chair solution for children and small adults. With built-in features to cater to a wide range of pressure care, respiratory, nutritional, elimination and social needs, Little Lento is designed to enhance quality of life.

Seat depth, height, width and more can be easily adjusted, meaning a single Little Lento care chair can be customised to suit many users. This flexibility makes Little Lento an ideal paediatric seating solution for multi-user environments, NHS loan stores and domestic settings.

Grows as quickly as they do

A common problem with paediatric specialist seating is that custom-built care chairs for children are quickly outgrown. Then more time and money have to be spent finding a replacement.

Little Lento can be resized in minutes, with no tools or new parts required! The same Little Lento chair can grow with a child for many years. This is cost-effective and convenient; the user doesn’t have to wait in discomfort for a replacement chair or parts to arrive.

Supportive & Comfortable

Little Lento’s flexibility doesn’t compromise clinical effectiveness. The adjustable features make this care chair better able to fit an individual’s varying healthcare needs.

The removable armrests make side transfers easier for carers and users. The locking tilt-in-space function provides comfort whilst relieving pressure. Plus, an adjustable footplate and extending legrest provide full body support and help to maintain good posture.

Postural support is especially important for growing children, maintaining proper body positioning can help to correct any problems far more easily than in adults. But the wide range of features means the Little Lento is well suited for both children and small adults with varying complex needs.
