There are many Steam generator ironing boards which are height adjustable, but which are the best to use while sitting? Using an ironing board while seated, the board has to be rock solid and not too long. The slightest wobble is enough to put the user off. Although many ironing boards allow for height adjustment, I'm sure they all haven't taken into consideration specific use by the disabled.

What ironing boards (suitable for steam generators) have you found the best to use while seated?

    You don't need a special ironing board for a steam generator iron, we get on fine with our old one (though I guess there may be some SG irons where the steam cord isn't long enought to sit the generator on the floor).

    found this ironing board made by Brabantia. It allows you to use the steam at full pelt and collects the excess water in a container. Neat job, prevents the legs getting steamed. It's a bit pricey though at £99.

    That's a good idea I have a steam generator and an adjustable ironing board and sit down to iron. If I forget and put my knees under the board I find that I get hot water dripping onto my knees ouch :D . As you say though £99 is a bit pricey
