Product Care

Frequent Adjustments

Frequent adjustment for daily use
Parents and carers should be shown how to make frequent adjustments and made aware of the safety checks by a technically and clinically competent person who has been trained in the use of the product. Leckey recommend that a written record is maintained of all parent and carers who have been trained in the use of this product.

Transferring the user into and out of the stander
Before transferring the child into the stander carry out the daily product inspection. We would recommend that users are never transferred straight from seating to standing without preparation and stretching. This is best done in lying position whilst on a mat but can be carried out in a wheelchair or seating system if required. Before transferring the child into the product lock all the castors, ensuring that they are facing outwards to maximise product stability. Make sure the straps on the flexible laterals supports, the pelvic band and sandals are released and out of the way to facilitate transfer.
Always secure the pelvic band or flexible hip pads first and then the flexible lateral supports.

Charging the battery

Before the product is used for the first time it is recommended to charge the battery fully for at least 12 hours. To charge the battery, plug the adaptor into the mains socket, attach the lead (a) to the handset and switch on the mains power. While charging the charger LED will fl ash orange and will turn to green when fully charged. When charged switch off mains power, remove the adaptor plug when and disconnect the lead from the battery. The battery charge should be topped up each day for approximately one hour. When charged switch off the mains power, remove the adaptor plug and disconnect the lead from the handset. However if the battery is low in power an audible bleep will sound indicating that it needs to be charged.

Setting the Angle

Whether used in supine or prone the frame angle can be easily adjusted with the push button control handset.
Ensure that the product and user are away from surrounding furnishings to prevent possible collisions when adjusting the angle.


Flexible Lateral Supports

To open and secure the laterals around the user by tensioning the safety strap (b). The flexible lateral supports are secured around the user by clipping the plastic buckle into its receiver. The safety strap (b) can then be tensioned if required.
Check the laterals are secure before placing the user in the product. As if they are loose the user may be at risk of slipping into a position they cannot not recover from and could restrict their breathing.


Flexible Hip Pads

To open and secure the laterals around the user by tensioning the safety strap (b). The flexible hip pads are secured around the user by clipping the plastic buckle into its receiver. The safety strap (b) can then be tensioned if required.
Check the laterals are secure before placing the user in the product. As if they are loose the user may be at risk of slipping out of the product and could cause them serious injury.


The Front Knee Supports

The knee supports come as standard with an additional contoured pad. This should always be used when the user is in supine but can also be used for prone standing for additional support and security. To fasten the pad insert the plastic clip into the buckle on the side of the main knee support. Then grab the straps ends and pull firmly away from the user, which will secure the pad around the users leg. To remove the pad simply squeeze the tabs on the top and bottom of the plastic clip and the pad will pop off.
Always check with your therapist as to the correct tensioning of the straps for your child as the kneecap is a sensitive area and too much force could cause injury.


Activity Tray Adjustment – Supine

The Tray is attached to and removed from the frame by the metal brackets located below the chest pad. To attach the tray slide the metal bars into the receiving tubes to the required depth and secure by tightening the knobs (a) on rather side. There are limit poppers in the end of the tray tubes to show the maximum depth adjustment allowed. These may need to be depressed to remove the tray. To adjust the height loosen the four knobs (b), set the tray to the required position and then retighten the knobs securely. The tray angle can be adjusted by loosening the plastic handle (c) on either side of the tray, set the tray to the required angle and tighten the plastic handles again securely.


Activity Tray Adjustment – Prone

To lock the tray and set its height push the over centre lever (a) down until it touches the metal spine. After use this may need to be fine tuned to ensure secure locking. To do this lift up the lever and turn the nut (b) while holding the lever in a fixed position. Push the lever back down to check if it locks the tube securely. Repeat the process as necessary. The tray angle can be adjusted by loosening the ratchet handle (c) on either side of the tray, set the tray to the required angle and tighten the plastic handles again securely.

Always use caution when making this adjustment, as fingers could become trapped in the slot while positioning.
Always use caution when inserting the tray to make sure the childs hands or arms do not become trapped.
Do not place hot objects on the tray, not greater than 40 degrees Celsius. Please note that the tray is for the use of the user only.
Do not lean or place heavy objects on the tray, not greater than 8kgs (17.6lbs).
Never use the tray to steer or push the stander.


Sandals

To position the user’s feet in the sandals secure the Velcro straps provided so the foot is held in place. The straps should be placed over the bridge of the foot and over the toes.
If the child is wearing sandals check the straps regular to make sure the webbing does not irritate the skin.
