Leisure and play time

Free at last. To explore the world – or at least the home – with others. During play, children collect impressions and experiences, develop body and mind, gain self-confidence and practice social behaviour.

To do this, they need mobility and the ability to interact with others. A child should be able to stand on their own legs by the time they are 18 months old. Severely delayed or faulty development can seriously impair the ability to walk later. Body weight must press the thigh bones into the hip sockets so that the hip joint can develop fully.

Various Ottobock walking aids help your child acquire and practice important stance and gait functions. The frame of the walking aid is either in front of or behind the child; if it is in front, the walker provides stability for an insecure gait. A walker whose frame is behind allows the child to use the support muscles of the upper body.
