The clinical setup of the product should be completed by a technically and clinically competent person who has been trained in the use of the product. Leckey recommend a written record is maintained of all clinical setups for this product.
Always secure the Pelvic harness first when placing the child in the seat. Loosen all the straps to their maximum before placing the child in the seat. First secure the plastic buckle (C) in the middle. To adjust the depth, adjust straps (A) on both sides and (B) for height.
Always attach the pelvic strap first before making any other adjustments
Dynamic trunk support height adjustment
The dynamic trunk support is designed as a mid thoracic support to allow movement. The height can be adjusted while the child is in the seat to provide more or less support depending on the child’s abilities. To height adjust loosen the allen bolts at either side with the Leckey tool, slide the rods to the required height and re-tighten. Use the grooves on the rods to ensure they are at the same height.
Never adjust the height beyond the third groove on the plastic rods as this indicates the maximum height adjustment available.
Infants with high tone or extensor patterns should be supervised at all times whilst using the product.
Dynamic trunk support angle adjustment
The trunk support can be secured in an upright sitting position, or locked in any angle, retaining flexibility. It can be adjusted while the user is in the seat. To angle adjust, open the flap at either side and loosen the plastic knobs, set the supports to the desired position and then retighten securely. Use the markers on the labels as a guide to ensure both sides are set to the same angle.
Dynamic trunk support width adjustment
To width adjust the trunk support open the flap at the front and pull the tensioning strap to the desired position. The flap is attached with Velcro® and can be repositioned so it is centrally aligned around the child. Close the flap and secure with the two snap fasteners at the front.
If the child has a feeding tube ensure the trunk support does not restrict or interfere with it.
This position can be used to promote development of the spinal curves, stability of the trunk and improved function. The seat base with the leg support attached can be elevated into prone by inserting the prone bar into the underside of the seat base. To attach the prone bar, turn the seat base upside down, press the poppers in and slide the prone bar into the receiving tubes at the back of the seat. The bar is secure when the poppers engage in the holes in the receiving tubes. To remove reverse the process. Place the seat with prone bar attached on a stable flat surface. Set the trunk support angle to 115 degrees so the child is in an upright position. Fine tuning of the trunk support can be carried out with the child in the seat.
Check that the product is stable and never leave the child unattended especially if they are very active in the seat.
Leg support pommel and positioning strap
We recommend that the leg abduction pommel be used when using the positioning strap. Attach the leg abduction pommel onto the receiving loop of the leg support cushion and press down firmly to secure. With the hooky panel firmly secured to the underside of the leg support moulding, wrap the two straps over the child’s legs with the abduction pommel secured. Insert the two straps through the plastic slide and tension the straps as desired. By removing the leg support and placing the flexion roll under the knees, a more flexed sitting position can be provided for the child. The raised seat base helps to prevent the legs from falling into abduction, and the pelvis into posterior tilt, providing a more symmetrical and functional position.
The flexion roll is attached by Velcro and canbe positioned on the seat base cushion so that it rests comfortably behind the child’s flexed knees.
Seat base abduction pommel
Adding the abduction pommel to the seat base increases the stability offered, by abducting and externally rotating the femurs. The abduction pommel is attached by Velcro and can be positioned on the seat base cushion so that it provides optimum support for abduction or adduction prevention.
Padded activity tray
The padded activity tray can be angle, height and depth adjusted to provide optimum support for, posture function or play activities. To height adjust the tray loosen the plastic knobs (A), press the popper in (B), slide the inner tube to the desired position and re-tighten the plastic knob .(A) Ensure that the poppers are in the same hole position at either side so the tray remains level. To angle adjust loosen the plastic handle (C) at either side of the tray, tilt the tray to the desired position and re-tighten the plastic handle. The tray can be simply depth adjusted by pushing the tray closer to the child. However, to prevent an active child from pushing the tray away it can be secured to the seat base with the additional attachment straps (D) provided. To secure the tray, clip the buckles at the base of the tray into the attachment strap receivers at the bottom of the seat base. The depth can be set by adjusting the straps.
Always use caution to ensure the childs hands or arms do not become trapped when adjusting the tray.
Always use caution to ensure that fingers do not become trapped in the slot when angle adjusting the tray.
Do not place hot objects on the tray, greater than 30 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, greater than 8kgs (17.6lbs)
