Ready to learn with Ottobock and Leckey.
Most able-bodied children develop early motor and cognitive skills simply through their own curiosity. They see the world around them and feel compelled to explore. They learn to move so they can see and touch and taste the fascinating objects around them. Reaching leads to rolling, then sitting, then crawling, then pulling to stand, walking and running.
Children with special needs have the same fascination with anything beyond their grasp. But children with physical disabilities often miss out on experiences that fuel normal development. These children benefit from adaptive equipment that enables them to explore and interact. As much as possible, disabled children should follow the typical development schedule of able-bodied children.
In order to help all children maximize independence and learning opportunities, Ottobock offers a variety of adaptive equipment ideal for schools. This equipment is designed to provide maximum adjustability to grow with a child’s needs and extend the life of the device.
The PAL seat is an attractive, robust and easy to use classroom and kindergarten seating system for kids 1-8 years of age, with mild to moderate postural needs. It is designed to give improved stability, which helps reduce fatigue and allows the child longer periods of concentration and fine motor activity.
When your child is comfortably aligned and supported, standing becomes a positive part of therapy and a great way to be more involved in the world around them. The Leckey Squiggles Stander can be used in several ways: as a prone stander, a supine stander, or an upright stander.
Two sizes, three positions, four colors – and that’s just the beginning of the choices that are yours to make with the Leckey Mygo Pediatric Stander. When your child is comfortably aligned and supported, standing can help deliver physical, emotional and social benefits in your child’s development.
The Easy Seat can grow with your child thanks to its adjustment possibilities and available accessories. It can also be quickly and easily converted into a potty trainer if you want to use it in more than one way. You have the ability to use the seat to support the development of sitting posture and to help your child practice going to the toilet.
The Leckey KIT seating system for youths aged 12 and up is comfortable and provides stable positioning – for example at the dining table or school desk. Since it is individually adaptable to the pelvis and trunk, your child feels comfortable even for extended periods of time.
