DAY POSITIONING

 

Day Positioning – Prone and Supine

Coral

Visible reduction of high tone and the reduction of muscle spasms are soon observed, over the entire body. Extremely good for prone posturing.  Because of the unique support, side rotation and sliding down the unit are eliminated.  Whilst prone, good shoulder flexion can be achieved.  Head control has also been witnessed, therefore giving the client a new environment coupled with freedom.  Visible extension of the spine is another good feature.  Supine lying offers an alternative position, which can be varied slightly to give a sitting position.

 

Gustav

A smaller unit suitable for children, giving the same benefits as the CORAL.

The CORAL and GUSTAV units are ideal for use in sensory rooms and for use in rebound therapy, the holding and moulding ability is maintained when used on a trampoline.

Mat

This unit accommodates the profoundly disabled. Ideal for
therapy sessions, it helps to reduce spasm and lowering of
tone. Particularly beneficial for epileptic clients as it gives a
warm, safe and cosy environment for the recovery period.

Mini Mat

A smaller version of the MAT unit with all the same benefits.
