The Monkey Stander is a highly adjustable paediatric standing aid that provides prone to upright positioning for children from 9 months to 4 years old. The Monkey Stander lets children practice weight bearing to achieve better hip development and bone density. Allowing for easy angle adjustment, even with the child in the product, the Monkey can go from upright at 90 degrees all the way down to 20 degrees prone making it the perfect way to build tolerance. Other Features: De-rotational Thoracic & Pelvic Straps with Lateral Support Pads, Adjusting Hip Straps, Removable Adduction Block, Angle Adjustable Tray.
Prone Standing Angle Adjustment
Each child will have a slightly different posture in standing and need slightly different support. The angle of the support surface can be adjusted from 20° prone through to upright, 90°. This angle adjustment is infinite so that Monkey can be set to exactly the right angle for each child. This means a child’s progress can be monitored and the angle of the board altered in line with changes in their ability.
The Monkey’s chest and hip boards can be independently altered and fixed, allowing the exact proportions of every individual child to be provided for whilst also enabling pressure to be avoided on delicate areas such as feeding buttons.
Fully upholstered chest, hip and leg boards help make standing more comfortable for children, increasing their tolerance of standing.
Benefits of PU Support Pads
All the support pads on the Monkey are made from polyurethane (PU). Easy to clean and keep hygienic, they also contain an antimicrobial agent. The support pads are provided as standard for knees, hips and chest, and are independently adjustable for height, width and angle, giving support in just the right places for every child.
The innovative Hip strap closes in the centre and is adjusted at each end for length. This ensures the child is positioned symmetrically – helping to keep them upright and comfortable whilst maximising the benefits of standing. The hip pads help to maintain symmetry of the hips in standing. The pads are highly adjustable which allows very precise support for each child.
