Squiggles Stander +
Offers height, depth, width, and angle adjustable pelvic support.
Prone, upright and supine standing in one product.
The anatomically-correct abduction offered by Squiggles+ stabilises the joints and provides optimum loading for early hip joint development. 60° of hip abduction can be achieved bilaterally in prone, upright or supine. Squiggles+ promotes proper alignment in the hips, knees and feet as pivot points are in line with the hips. Furthermore, the hip laterals on Squiggles+ shift in sync with the child’s leg allowing the hips to abduct and preventing the laterals from digging into the top of the child’s thigh. The wrap-around knee supports on Squiggles+ increase comfort and support for the user as they distribute pressure and are especially suited to abducted standing. The padded wraps maintain the knee in neutral alignment and can also be rotated to provide extra lateral support to the knee for low tone children. Squiggles+ supports transferring with confidence for the child and the carer via larger hip pads and the improved pivot chassis which facilitates full horizontal loading.
Standing is very important. An upright posture allows gravity to assist the function of our internal systems. By standing, children bear their weight through their bones and joints, which helps shape them while increasing their strength. Evidence would suggest that standing has a beneficial effect on hip joint formation. Standing stretches tight muscles and provides an alternative position. Socially, standing is also important as it enables interaction with their peers at the same level.
The combination of the standing support and range of base options means kids can benefit from standing therapy in any environment!
The lightweight and robust design of the LECKEY Squiggles Stander ensures the system can be easily transferred from one base to another or disassembled for storage or transportation.
The LECKEY Squiggles Stander can be easily individualised for the postural and comfort needs of a growing child. The fully adjustable pelvic support works for upright, supine and prone standing positioning providing effective pelvic support and pelvic alignment with the rest of the body in order for standing to be comfortable and therapeutically effective.
