Leckey Horizon Pediatric Stander

  • The 3 in 1 Horizon stander is a robust, durable and adjustable supine, upright and prone stander. Available in 2 sizes covering a large growth range from – 18 years of age.
  • The innovative design enables easy and safe transfer of users using either mobile or tracking hoists.
  • The unique positioning achieved by our pelvic belt and hip laterals enables de-rotation of the hips; alignment of the pelvis and centre of gravity over the base of support; accommodation or correction of flexion at the hips and knees.
  • Ideally suited for more complex users or for young adults who have not benefited from standing therapy for some time, the individually adjustable chest, hip, knee and footplates provide unsurpassed levels of adjustability and proximal positioning.
  • With the use of the non-slip adjustment knobs the product can be quickly and easily set up and re-adjusted for multiple users in a classroom, therapy room or home environment.
  • The innovative V-shaped design of the knee supports ensures a proximal fit irrespective of the size of the child’s knees whilst centralising them and maximising the surface area of loading.

Posture & Function

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

The Horizon stander supports complex users in supine, prone or upright standing postures. The pelvis can be de-rotated using the pelvic belt and hip guides, providing alignment over the base of support. As legs and feet are taking the weight of the child, proper support is essential. Independently adjustable footplates ensure feet are positioned so that weight is distributed appropriately.
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.

Leckey Horizon Stander additional support
The adjustable chest support and flexible laterals provide trunk support whether prone, supine or upright. 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.
Pelvic Stability

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 belt, pads, or pelvic band regardless of whether in an upright, prone or supine posture. Supine standing provides an alternative posture for children who need maximum support to hold themselves upright against gravity. Prone standing is clinically recommended for stretching tight muscles and developing head control.
