New Walker for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Wanting to take some time to showcase a revolutionary product for children with Cerebral Palsy. This new walker that has wheels and bracing systems that make it easier than ever for children with CP to become more mobile.

The two-wheeled 
frame can be an ideal first device for some less involved children. It also provides progression for the child who is growing stronger and able to walk using the four-wheeled base. The two -wheeled frame prevents the child from falling forward or backward, and allows concentration on development of lateral balancing skills and weight shift.

Children can progress further to have adjustable stabilizers attached to the existing bracing system. This allows improvement in balance and stepping skill with a minimum amount of support. The stabilizers can be removed as strength and balance improve.

Would you be willing to try one of these walkers?
