Multiseat


  • The STABILO MULTISEAT is a vacuum posture seat with adjustable padding

    APPLICATIONS

    The seat is designed for children ranging from 100 cm to 170 cm high with low muscle tension or with CP and spasticity.

    FEATURES

    The STABILO system allows the shape and hardness of the seat to be adjusted accordingly, ensuring:

    • Correction of bad pelvic position
    • Trunk stabilisation with side supports preventing from further deformities
    • Correct asymmetrical spinal support especially useful for kyphosis, scoliosis or hyperlordosis
    • Excellent head and neck protection thanks to adjustable headrest

    SUITABLE FOR USE:

    • As child car safety seats (certified according to ECE R44/04)
    • As orthopaedic seat mounted to chair/armchairs stabilising spine, neck and head
    • As indoor/outdoor swing
    • As short distance child carrying seat using the swing straps carried by two persons
    • As rocking chair insert

  • STABILO SHORTS - pelvic positioning harness

    STABILO SHORTS are designed to prevent a child from falling out from the MULTISEAT or reassuming to an incorrect body posture. Particularly useful in case of upward movements of the pelvis (usually in people with spasticity). When the hips move upwards, the SHORTS accommodate for this move and gently position the pelvis in its previous position.

    The SHORTS are made of neoprene coated with pure nylon Jersey material on one side and soft Velcro on the other side. They also have safety plastic buckles and adjusting straps.

    Product features:

    • Correct positioning of pelvis
    • Prevent falling out of seat and sliding down
    • Soft and comfortable
    • Easily adjusted

  • The STABILO MULTISEAT can be used as a swing serving as an excellent stimulus of the vestibular system. The swing  allows for the following movements:

    • Forward and back
    • Up and down
    • Moment of weightlessness (at the highest point of lifting)
    • Rotation around its own axis (using a special rod/bar)

    The vestibular system is made up of the sense organs for balance and responds to gravity. It is strongly associated with all the sensory systems in the body. It is also involved in movement and sensation coordination of the whole body. An efficient vestibular system also keeps the eyes in a fixed position during head rotation. Stimulation of the vestibular system in children with developmental delay is often part of physical therapies.

    It continues to develop and integrate with other sensory systems for a long time after birth.

    Some benefits of swinging as therapy include:

    • Stimulation of linear movement of children, who lacked this type of movement (endangered pregnancies) in the prenatal period
    • Improved balance control
    • Strengthens postural muscles
    • Maintains proper muscle tone
    • Development of bilateral coordination
    • Triggers reflexes required to preserve the position of the body at rest
    • Promotion of gravity information reception and greater gravitational security
    • Improved eye coordination
    • Smooth pursuit eye movements
    • Accompanied by gripping and object indication tasks, teaches how to plan movements and improves hand-eye coordination

    Examples of therapeutic swinging exercises:
    1. „Shallow” swinging
    Forward and backward movements with a slight inclination (up to 10 cm).
    2. „Deep” swinging
    Forward and backward movement with an inclination of up to 50 cm
    3. "Shallow" swinging as in the point 1 accompanied by a stop at maximum inclination
    4. Gripping and pointing to different objects while swinging
    5. Focusing on or tracking a light stimulus or object

    With the use of a rotating bar:
    6. Side-swinging (left-right)
    7. Slow rotation around one's own axis
    8. Excercises 1-5 can be also performed during rotating movement

    Best outcomes can be achieved through short excercises lasting no more than 2-3 min.

    The exercise regime and intensity  should be developed by a physiotherapist and adapted to the other elements of therapy. Parents and guardians independently implementing a physiotherapist-developed regime must exercise caution to prevent overstimulation which may lead to psychomotor agitation (sometimes with delayed onset) or, more seldom, apathy.

    Exercises must be stopped immediately if reddening, paleness or loss of consciousness occurs.

M size is suitable for users with a height of up to 1.25 m. L size is suitable for users with a height between approx. 1.25 m and 1.70 m. Nevertheless, the best way to select the right size is to try it on for size.

 

  • 4-point shell-adjustable waistcoats are also available for greater security.
