Developed with the aid of feedback from therapists and care staff, Jiraffe are delighted to bring you the Ly-on; a real solution to the challenge of positioning children who have complex postural or medical needs. Ly-on offers the ideal platform to build a structured yet safe and comfortable posture quickly and easily with no tools required.
The versatile base offers a wide range of height adjustment – coming low enough to enable children to engage in floor based activities and raising high enough for even the tallest of care staff to have a comfortable and safe working height when engaging with the child. 15 degrees of tilt in either direction allows for opportunities to change weight distribution to aid in pressure management. This tilt can also be utilised to provide a comfortable and safe position for a child to receive their enteral feed and can also be used for therapeutic drainage positioning.
Ly-on is designed with practicality in mind and is ideal for use with multiple children due to its hygienic wipe clean material and removable washable covers. A wide range of positioning blocks ensure that even complex body shapes can be comfortably supported – and if there is a particular shape you need, just let us know, all of our positioning blocks can be customised for an exact fit.
We’re always keen to hear from parents, carers, children, young people and therapists who want to share their story with us! If you, or someone you know has benefitted in a positive way from using equipment from the Jiraffe range, why not get in touch and share your story. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
