Description

Specialist walking/standing harness manufactured in neoprene because of its elasticity and inertness which makes this material well suited for demanding applications. The design and neoprene provide flexible support around the trunk and pelvic area.

This particular specialist harness has proven very successful for children with athetoid cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury and those with ataxic movement. Allowing for both backward as well as forward movement, this harness is particularly suited to balance therapies, is often used in rehabilitation, working in prone positions, and creates inclusion opportunities in school and family activities.

Helps improve standing tolerance, can be used for independent transfers and activities using natural patterns of movement and due to the nature of the material can be used in hydro-therapy situations.

Apply on a changing table or bed.

Available in one material type: 
Neoprene

Wash by hand
