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.
Setting the chest support height
Set the chest support height first by placing the child in a lying position on a mat. Measure the distance from the child’s feet to just under their axilla. The height between the top of the chest support and the footplate should be set to this distance.
Never attempt to adjust the height of the main frame when the stander is in use.
Adjusting the overall height
The overall height of the standing support can be adjusted by loosening the bolt on the back of the main frame with the multi-tool. Sliding the inner stem to the desired height and retightening the allen bolt. A calibration strip is fitted on the side of the inner frame to help you record the selected positions of the supports. There is also a safety stop at the maximum height.
Adjusting the chest and hip supports
To adjust the chest and hip support rotate knob (A) in a clockwise direction and rotate knob (B) in an anticlockwise direction as shown. Set to the required position and then retighten. The chest support can only be adjusted in angle and depth.
Always use caution to ensure fingers do not become trapped when adjusting the chest and hip supports.
Loosen the hand knob (A) to adjust the width of the lateral supports and retighten when you have achieved the desired position. If, the lateral supports are attached with bolts instead of hand knobs they can be adjusted with the multi tool.
Always use caution to ensure fingers do not become trapped when adjusting the lateral supports.
Chest and hip support harness
To change the width of the chest harness, lift the front cover, adjust the Velcro straps and set to the desired width and replace the cover.
Always make sure the plastic buckles are fully engaged when using the chest harness.
Adjusting the pelvic harness
To adjust the pelvic harness pull the Velcro receiving straps around the user until the desired position is achieved.
Adjusting the height, depth and angle of the knee cups
Each knee cup can be positioned independently. To adjust the height, depth and angle of the knee cups, loosen knob (A), select the height, angle and depth required and retighten the knob securely. To adjust the width of the knee cup loosen knob (B), set to the desired width then retighten.
Adjusting the sternum pad
The sternum pad can be raised to provide additional support to assist thoracic extension. This also allows the chest support to be set lower to enable greater freedom of arm movement. The sternum plate is adjusted by loosening the two bolts at the front of the chest plate with the multi-tool, set to the desired height and retighten.
Always use caution to ensure fingers do not become trapped when adjusting the sternum pad.
Contoured and flat headrest adjustment
The headrest should only be used when the child is in supine standing. To adjust the height, depth and angle of the contoured headrest, loosen the hand knobs (A) and when set to the desired position retighten the knobs.
Always use caution to ensure fingers do not become trapped when height adjusting the headrest.
To adjust, lift the front fabric panel, set the belt to the desired length and reposition in place. Minor adjustments to the knee cups and hip support may be made during use.
Flat headrest lateral adjustment
To adjust the width of the laterals loosen plastic knob (A) to desired position and tighten securely.
To position the sandals simply loosen the knob (a) under the footplate, select the position you require and re-fasten the knob. To position the user’s feet in the sandals secure the Velcro ankle and toe straps provided.
Footplate angle adjustment
To set the angle to accommodate plantarflexion and dorsiflexion, simply loosen or tighten the allen bolt (B) to set the desired angle.
