When children are posturally unstable, they end up using more energy simply trying to sit in place. This can leave little left for concentration, listening and find motor tasks. You know.... School
Pelvic Stability is acheived using a simple combination of two-point lab belt and side pads for lateral stability.
|An optional ramped cushion can be added if children need a little extra help to keep pelvis and femers in alignment.|
Trunk and Head Alignment
Maintaining the trunk in a midline posture translates into improved head alignment, enabling eyes to focus more easily, and contrubuting to improved reading and writing ability.
Where a less upright angle is required, the backrest angle and armrests adjust to suit the child's needs, and along with the large tray or table, provides appropriate posterior and anterior support.
When children are provided with postural stability, their functional abilities are enhanced. Pal's additional features allow increased function.
|In the classroom environment, the optional matching table provides a large surface for anterior support, feeding, writing and other table top activities.||For small children, the optional high seat frame converts PAL size 1 to a high chair, ideal for feeting and inclusion at family meal times.|
Leg and Foot Positioning
Supporting the femurs and feet is important for weight distribution and comfort.
|The seat depth is adjustable for maximum femoral support, and when children need additional help to maintain the alignment of their femurs, a pommel is available.||Lower leg and foot support is provided by the height adjustable legs and footplate, contributing to pelvic stability.|
