This section includes conventional style swings with more support than a standard swing seat, and swing frames accommodating single or multiple use including wheelchair compatible swings or accessories. Most of them rely on using the swing component with a heavy duty frame.
Seat supports may include an integral pommel (without side support), a harness or footrest. Some designs allow the swing to be used in a lying position.
Outdoor swings and rockers may be used to develop balance reactions and postural control.
Wheelchair accessible swings and specialised swing seats may have an integral pommel, footrest and an adjustable harness. Seat heights and angles can often be adjusted on these swings.
Some swings have reduced side-to-side motion and twisting to give a stable and gently swinging platform. Several seats allow children to swing whilst in a lying or reclined position.
