Kerry McPhee, from Paisley and whose six-year-old son Ashton lives with quadriplegic cerebral palsy and global development delay, has talked up the health benefits of the Jenx Multistander – a three-in-one standing frame manufactured for children aged from nine months to 13 years – after a recommendation from the family’s Physiotherapist.
Kerry, who initially found the Multistander at an exhibition in Scotland, said:
The Multistander has lots of incredible health benefits for Ashton, who spends most of his time sitting or lying down. As parents of a full-time wheelchair user, it’s amazing to see our son enjoy finally standing tall.
Our physiotherapist recommended Jiraffe to us, and I was immediately impressed with their range of products and extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Ashton, who is non-verbal, uses a variety of assistive equipment day-to-day – with the Jenx Multistander providing support which enables him to stand for prolonged periods.
The Jenx Multistander is a three-in-one standing frame, designed to provide highly supportive standing in prone, supine or upright.
The Multistander has a wide variety of head, trunk, leg and foot support options so that it can be adjusted in order to provide support precisely where it is needed while also being comfortable – the open design ensures parents can easily monitor the positioning.
