Provision of postural support is important at all times – during activity or rest. Participants learn to maintain posture throughout the day and night. Correct positioning is sustained by good alignment when out of the device (e.g. sidelying, on the back, tummy or standing).
Teachers, Parents, Caregivers, Social & Auxiliary Workers, Healthcare staff (nurses; CHW’s), Orthotists/Prosthetists, Health Students, Technicians, Medical Aid Scheme administration staff.
