Assisted upright standing is a way for children with moderate ability to experience standing and to improve muscle strength. Penguin has the capacity to adjust in the correct way to offer younger children true upright standing, like the Kangaroo it has adjustment in three planes to ensure that the support it gives encourages an efficient standing position.
Penguin has been designed to offer excellent support for children in upright standing, and the range of support and adjustment options available creates a product that is suitable for children aged between 18 months and 4 years.
Upright standers are suitable for children who require minimal support and use a standing frame for therapeutic positioning. They are more suited to children who’s needs are unlikely to change greatly over the course of product growth. If this is unknown or can’t be guaranteed, then a Monkey Prone Stander or Multistander may be more suitable.
