Yorkshire Care Equipment has published a short story to introduce children and Occupational Therapists (OTs) to Little Lento.
Little Lento is the company’s new care chair specially designed to fit children and adults under 5ft 2in.
Complete with full-colour illustrations, the book titled ‘The Adventures of Little Lento’ tells the story of a chair called Little Lento and his journey supporting a little girl named Jessica as she grows up.
Tristan Hulbert, MD at Yorkshire Care and author of ‘The Adventures of Little Lento’ said: “The idea to write a children’s book came to me quite suddenly.
“We’d already been developing Little Lento for about a year when it first crossed my mind one evening as something that could be a fun idea. From there, I just started writing and the story came together.”
He added: “We’re all really pleased with the end result. The story captures how important a properly fitted care chair is. For many of the children Little Lento was developed for, their chair is where they spend most of their time. The real Little Lento might not speak or have a friendly smile, but it does provide comfort and support that can be life-changing.”
Little Lento launched officially at the OT Show yesterday.
