We first met Billy in 2010 when he was 24 years old. Billy has spastic quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy and moderate learning disability.
A review took place with Billy in November 2015 and although no “formal evidence” is available, Billy’s therapist made the following observations:
• Billy’s posture and body shape changed several times due to different treatments, and repeated bouts of illness.
• Had Billy been using a moulded seat, he would have needed several of these in the years that he had his KIT.
• Billy’s KIT could adjust to meet his changing posture. It was time consuming, but saved a lot of money for the NHS.
Billy’s therapist also added “The beauty of the KIT is that we have been able to adjust it to allow continued support and comfort for Billy without needing to consider a new seat or/and change of equipment.”
