Posture & Function

Research has shown that standing can improve bone density, motor abilities and reduce spasticity, tone and spasms.

The Pronestander supports children in five secure prone positions. The pelvis can be de-rotated using the pelvic pad and belt, providing alignment over the base of support. Feet can be appropriately supported using the footplates or adjustable sandals, depending on the level of foot stability required.

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.

The adjustable chest support and flexible laterals provide trunk support regardless of the prone angle chosen. Where children have a tendency to hyperextend, the contoured head support and hyperextension pads can be fitted to help maintain an upright posture. Where additional support is needed to keep the head in midline, a range of Whitmyer head supports can be attached.

Function

The Pronestander is designed to promote independence and function in a number of ways.

Regardless of the prone angle selected, the tray with its useful bowl, height and angle adjusts to encourage optimum upper limb and hand function. To encourage eye gaze and visual tracking, toys can be suspended from the optional grab rail. Where additional stability for upper limbs is needed, optional grab posts can be attached, improving the functional use of the dominant hand.
