Safely on the road with sturdy support
– for juveniles & adults weighing up to 80 kg / 176,4 lb

A stable solution is needed to ensure that juveniles and adults with special needs can travel safely on the road. The Thomashilfen Hercules XL has its great use when standard rehab car seats have become too small. As a modular XL positioning seat, it offers the familiar functions of a rehab car seat and can be very individually adjusted with a wide range of accessories. Because when positioning support for head and upper body is required, a simple vehicle 3-point safety belt system is not sufficient. Hercules XL - The Positioning Seat for a good, secure seating position on every journey.

 Will the XL seat fit in my car?

Always adjust the positioning seat in the vehicle that will be used later. There must be a distance of at least 95 cm / 37.4" from the seat to the roof of the vehicle. To ensure that tall users can still sit comfortably and do not feel crowded, we recommend a distance of approx. 110 cm / 43.3".
