The Supine Stander is a paediatric standing aid that offers robust support and safety for children standing in a supine position from 9 months of age onwards. The Supine Stander trains balance and encourages development by enabling the joints to be supported but mobile. Featuring a fully adjustable angle from horizontal to upright that provides postural support and pelvic stability. Other Features: PU Support Pads, De-rotational Thoracic & Pelvic Straps with Lateral Support Pads, Abduction Block, Knee Flexion Pads.
Each user will have a slightly different posture in standing and need slightly different support. The anle of the support surface can be adjusted from horizontal through to upright 90 degrees. This adjustment is infinite – meaning the exact angle required by the individual can be set, progress monitored and the angle re-assessed and adapted in line with the user’s progress.
Innovative Knee Support
Knee support pads for the Supine range come in 4 sizes, complete with de-rotational knee straps. Size 2 & Size 3 knee straps are uniquely designed to avoid pressure on the patella whilst still providing flexible, de-rotational support. A knee flexion option is also available to cater for fixed flexion at the knees.
The Supine Stander 3 provides a split footplate, enabling one foot to be positioned higher than the other without the need for sandal raising blocks. The Supine Stander 1 & 2 provide this via the use of sandal raising blocks.
The Supine Stander range offers various types of head positioning: There’s a PU head rest in matching (or contrasting) colours to the main support boards, which can help extend the height of the Supine Stander and provides minimal support for those with good head control; a head pad cushion that simply velcro’s into place and uses 2 small side pads to cradle the head to provide head support for those with simple head positioning needs; or there’s the original and innovative Jenx Multigrip headrest. The Multigrip is designed for those with more complex requirements as it has individual “fingers” that can be adjusted to cushion, support and control almost any head position.
Smooth and Easy Transfers
The ability to adjust the angle of the Supine Stander to fully horizontal, and then remove the support pads fully, means that it is easy to hoist or lift users on to the Supine frame. The support pads can then be adjusted whilst the user is still horizontal to ensure the optimum fit. The infinite and smooth angle adjustment enables the user to then be raised to the required angle and any final adjustments made with the minimum of fuss and maximum of dignity. This also provides less strain for carers too.
PU Support Pads
Available in red, blue, lime green, pink or grey, both the main frame boards and support pads on the Supine Standers are all made out of polyurethane or PU. PU is a highly flexible and vesatile material that is impervious to fluids, contains an antimicrobial agent and is therefore easy to clean and ideal from an infection control viewpoint. PU pads can simply be cleaned with an anti bacterial spray or wipe, which is particularly beneficial on standing products where soiling of equipment can make it time consuming to clean.
