Jiraffe launches new postural support product to make standing more accessible for children
Postural support specialist, Jiraffe, has announced a new “life changing” standing system that promises to help children between 5-14 years old to stand unaided.
Sheffield-based Jiraffe has revealed the new Standz 2 by Jenx offers prone or supine standing that accommodates abducted or neutral leg positioning for children.
The Standz 2 has not only been scaled up from Jenx’s original Standz product, but it has also been designed to meet the needs of children who are older, taller, heavier and stronger whilst keeping the much-loved simplicity of adjustment and use found in its original form.
Its simple and safe design is ideal for care providers to use, allowing clinicians to support children and adolescents as they move from postural development through to postural maintenance.
Holly Jenkins, Director at Jiraffe, which is the UK distribution division of Jenx, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Standz 2 to market. This new product is a fantastic development making the many clinical benefits of standing accessible to even more young children.
“Standing improves blood pressure and circulation, helps digestion, encourages good bone and muscle development, provides opportunities to increase social skills and is a great and effective way to improve a child’s outlook on the world.
“Standing isn’t just one position, the easy adjustability of Standz 2 enables children to stand in multiple positions, with each one offering different benefits.
“For children unable to stand unaided Standz 2 will be a life changing product”
