The Benefits of Abducted Standing in Children

Frances George, physiotherapist at Humberstone Park Special School, Grimsby has been working with Lily Mae (4 years) who has had a dislocated left hip since birth as well as other health issues.

Lily Mae had no independent sitting balance and was in supine position at 30° off upright. She started using Gazelle at home over Easter, standing upright to 85° for periods of 15 minutes increasing in recent months to 1.5+ hours daily which can be split into different sessions.

Following a further tendon release in September, Lily Mae will use the Gazelle to maintain further hip abduction and hopefully improve her MP.

For further information on the Gazelle PS please read our interactive workbook or visit our website

We're also delighted to introduce our NEW interactive Gazelle PS workbook, packed with information on the benefits of abducted standing.

The online workbook allows you to simply click on icons to watch 'How To' videos and case studies, view product details and easily access clinical research articles into hip abduction.
