Prone, Upright and Supine Stander for Young Children
Posture & Function
Research has shown that standing can improve bone density, motor abilities and reduce spasticity, tone and spasms.
Pelvic stability is as important in standing as in sitting, because the trunk, head, and legs have to be in alignment in order for standing to be comfortable and therapeutically effective.
The pelvis is held in a secure and stable position by the fully adjustable pelvic support, regardless of whether in an upright, prone or supine posture.
Trunk and Head Alignment
As in sitting, trunk and head support contributes to the stability of the pelvis in standing, enhancing arm and hand function, concentration and social interaction.
In prone, the sternum pad offers extra support for encouraging extension, giving a wide range of freedom for the arms.
Where minimal head support is needed, for example in an upright posture, the flat headrest cushion acts as a posterior prompt to keep the head balanced over the trunk.
Where additional support is needed to keep the head in midline, lateral supports can be added to the headrest.
Leg and Foot Positioning
Active weight bearing contributes to the development of the hip joint. It is essential that legs and feet are appropriately positioned to achieve maximum therapeutic benefit.
In order to provide bespoke positioning, the knee supports are individually adjustable in height, angle, rotation and depth, ensuring the knees are comfortable and stable whether prone or supine.
Where additional foot stability is needed, the footplate can be fitted with sandals.
The Squiggles Stander is designed to promote independence and function.
Whether prone or upright, the tray with optional grab rail can be used to facilitate table top play whilst in the standing position.
The deep activity tray allows for play in sand or water, while with its lid on, can facilitate table top play or feeding.
