Paisley mum hails Jenx Multistander which allows disabled son to ‘stand tall’
We’re over the moon following praise from a Scottish mum-of-one for the Multistander by Jenx, after it enabled her disabled son to ‘finally stand tall’.
Kerry McPhee, from Paisley and whose six-year-old son Ashton lives with quadriplegic cerebral palsy and global development delay, has talked up the health benefits of the Jenx Multistander, from Jiraffe – a three-in-one standing frame manufactured for children aged from nine months to 13 years – after a recommendation from the family’s physiotherapist.
Kerry, who initially found the Multistander at a Kidz to Adultz exhibition in Scotland, said:
“The Multistander has lots of incredible health benefits for Ashton, who spends most of his time sitting or lying down. As parents of a full-time wheelchair user, it’s amazing to see our son enjoy finally standing tall.
“Our physiotherapist recommended Jiraffe to us, and I was immediately impressed with their range of products and extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff.”
Ashton, who is non-verbal, uses a variety of assistive equipment day-to-day – with the Jenx Multistander providing support which enables him to stand for prolonged periods.
The Jenx Multistander is a three-in-one standing frame, designed to provide highly supportive standing in prone, supine or upright.
The Multistander has a wide variety of head, trunk, leg and foot support options so that it can be adjusted in order to provide support precisely where it is needed while also being comfortable – the open design ensures parents can easily monitor the positioning.
Holly Jenkins, Director at Jiraffe, said:
“We are thrilled that Kerry and Ashton have seen incredible changes with his Multistander.
“This product is a great option for children with a wide range of needs due to its outstanding thoracic and pelvic support coupled with highly adjustable leg positioning options. If you’re looking for flexibility, the Jenx Multistander has everything you need!”
We have also just updated Ashton’s Multistander to change it from grey to red – Ashton’s favourite colour.
