There are special needs kids
Designed to provide support for children who are just learning to walk and need a balancing aid as they begin to develop walking skills. For children from 1 to 4 years, approximately.
Here is a small corner chair which allows children with CP to be able to sit up better and gives them a tray to eat from or do activities on. Usually children with CP have tight hamstrings, which makes it difficult for them to sit in a regular chair. These chairs make a HUGE difference.
For kids with CP it is important they stand up and put weight on their legs so that their hips do not go out of joint. This is a stander which allows the child to stand up and do activities on a tray.
These are benches, which are adjustable to the child's size and allows the therapist to practice "sit to stand" with them, which is the first thing they learn before being able to walk. The bench can be tilted a little to help the child to master this.
|Ankle Foot Orthoses
Corrects the foot to the best possible position of function to provide appropriate stability.
In 2004 Life2Orphans shipped out special needs equipment
including wheelchairs to Lotikovo and Green Forest Orphanage,
and equipment to Boyarka and Antoshka. Two walkers and a
positioning chair were shipped out in 2004 as well.
