Special Tomato® Soft-Touch® Cushions are designed by Tim Bergeron, the original creator of Tumble Forms®. Tim has improved his special needs seating and positioning designs to make them more therapeutically sound to enhance what therapists and caregivers work on daily with their children. Tim’s new material, Soft-Touch®, is soft and comfortable yet extremely durable to stand up to daily use in homes, clinics, schools and hospitals.
Hand-crafted in upstate New York, Special Tomato Soft-Touch cushion products are designed with the needs of the user and care provider in mind. With over 40 years of manufacturing pediatric seating and positioning systems, our products are safe and easy to use while providing a latex-free contact surface. Our exclusive manufacturing process adds strength without using harsh chemicals or plastics. Soft-Touch cushions are made of non-toxic and latex-free material. The contoured designs of our products provide a large surface area for distributing pressure which reduces the risk of skin shear and breakdown. Our material is cool and smooth reducing the possibility of children’s skin sticking to the seating surface.
Our Soft-Touch material outer skin prevents the seating and positioning products from peeling or tearing and also prevents liquids from penetrating the core. The soft-to-the-touch inner core is a specially formulated foam that allows for children to sit comfortably for longer periods of time.
