Aleksander Borgenhov, Geir Eide, Lina Aker, Tom-Arne Solhaug, and Fredrik Brodtkorb. Krabat Jockey. 2007
Jockey is a safe and comfortable chair that enables the active participation in everyday life of young children with a range of disabilities. It supports activities such as eating, playing, and watching television, and it is completely foldable, adjustable, and lightweight. Its minimal form focuses attention on the child instead of the chair. Krabat, a small Norwegian company that focuses on innovative pediatric technical aids, was founded by Tom-Arne Solhaug and Fredrik Brodtkorb after Solhaug’s son Kasper was born with cerebral palsy, to offer alternatives to the ugly, poorly functioning, intimidating, and stigmatizing equipment available at the time.
