Conductive Education Petö Furniture

I stumbled upon a website, which was published on 22nd October 2009 offering original Petö furniture. I thought that my readers might be interested to know about it.

Quote from the site:

“ This furniture was originally from Hungary and still bears the motto of the world famous Petö Institute it was used for rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy.

There are many items, approximately 200, which include plinths of varying heights, ladder backed chairs, small chairs, stool boxes, special chairs, mobiles, foot boxes, wooden wedges etc.

These items would be more than sufficient for a small school or new group setting out, the original value of this equipment new was £10-£25000.

It can be collected or delivery can be arranged at extra cost anywhere in Europe.

This furniture is intended to be used with the method of Conductive Education and can be used in the rehabilitation of cerebral palsy children.”

There is no information about where the furniture is at the moment, but at the bottom of each page there is a lovely quotation from William A. Foster:

‘Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skilful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.’

If you know anything about this new venture please let us know.
