Pediatric Tumble Forms

Tumble FormsPurpose
Thera- Wedge System Designed to be used w/older child or young adult. Can help appropriate body position, while allowing desired maintenace of positioning.
Thera- Wedge System: Head/neck flexion Position in supine on a smaller inverted wedge.
Thera- Wedge System: LE ROM Use lg. wedge 2 support LE's. This positioning helps decrease extensor tone in supine/reduce lordotic curve while ranging arms.
Thera-Wedge System: UE WB-Position in prone on lg or sm wedge to encourage WB on elbows or extended arms.
Thera-Wedge System: UE WB-Position in prone on lg or sm wedge to encourage Development of unilateral WB while requiring one arm reaching.
Thera-Wedge System: UE WB-Position in prone on lg or sm wedge to encourage Working height of prone wedge position is 12".
Thera- Wedge System: abduction at hips/hip & knee extension- Position in prone using straps and abductor wedge. The mild drop-off ledge shape helps 2 relax mild hip flexion contractures. Wedge postioning just below pelvic crest encourages contractures 2 elongate during 15 min periods. Effective wedge height =10"
Thera- Wedge System: sitting balance Increased hip flexion gained by seating on end of 17" wedge. This decreases extensor tone and lordotic curve thus controlling lower body while head/trunk control acts are performed
Grasshopper Mobile positioning system consists of over 15 different shapes/forms.
Grasshopper: Padded Coaster base When child is positioned on Coaster base, it allows for ease in changing location while aintaining adaptive support.
Grasshopper: Log/Base By attaching log/base, it becomes an active therapeutic treatment sustem for vestibular stimulation acts.
Grasshopper: Vestibular Stimulation- Can be used to elicit an adaptive protective or equilibruim response
Grasshopper: Vestibular Stimulation- Can be used to effect a change in muscle tone w/out requiring an adaptive response.
Grasshopper: Prone/Supine Positioning- Can be used to develop improved head control.
Grasshopper: Prone/Supine Positioning- Can be used to help improve shoulder girdle stability
Grasshopper: Prone/Supine Positioning- Can be used to help prevent contractures and deformities in LE's by facilitating hip extension, abduction and external rotation, knee extension and ankle dorsiflexion.
Grasshopper: Side Lying Positioning Enables ability to achieve a beginning midline control, that's important motorically, cognitively and perceptually. Facilitates eye-hand coordination as child visually monitors their arm/hand movements.
Grasshopper: Sitting Positions (I) sitting enables child to engage in range of acts involving varying degrees of eye-hand coordination while upright. Both roll/long leg sitting can be used to maintain or increase ROM.
