R Parslow (Physiotherapist)

, PEG fed and presenting developmental delay. He has moderate head control, some trunk activity, but no independent sitting balance.
Description of Product Trialled:
Child A has been using a Jenx Monkey Stander for one month.
General and Emotional Benefits:
Child A is able to practice weight bearing and ensure better hip development and bone density. Plus the change of position gives Child A greater access to the world and interaction on that level. As Child A is very small even though nearly 2 years old, sandal raising blocks were needed to ensure the appropriate level of support and a good stand are achieved. The stander has also meant reduced physical support required to be provided by Mum, allowing her to play with Child A on better level, making both mum and Child A much happier.
A smaller size would have been perfect, but overall very happy with the Monkey stander and found it easy to use and adjust.
