Etac R82, a leading specialist in adaptive equipment for disabled children and adults, has successfully launched its new educational guide for the R82 Crocodile walking frame and showcased its popular products at Kidz-to-Adultz-Middle.
Etac R82 supplies R82 products that help children living with disabilities fulfil their maximum potential. Convaid specialist buggy manufacturer has recently been added to an extensive portfolio of brands that includes Etac, Molift, Immedia, Convaid and Star Cushions.
Together these quality names provide wheelchairs, buggies, seating, walking, toileting, bathing, transfer, postural support and pressure care solutions for a range of adult and paediatric needs.
Etac R82 believes that providing informative advice and accurate information is vital to ensure appropriate equipment use and positive outcomes for all. Hence this experienced specialist continues to introduce a range of free educational product guides or ‘work books’ which include a comprehensive range of information.
These guides include case studies, clinical evidence, product summaries and interactive videos that include ‘how to’ demonstrations. The new Crocodile guide was introduced at Kidz-to-Adultz-Middle and includes contributions from Frances George, highly specialist physiotherapist.
The Crocodile is a highly adaptable walking aid for children and young adults. Each Crocodile helps the young user achieve a more upright posture. It is placed behind the child and its lightweight design makes it easy to move and use.
As much energy as possible is therefore used walking rather than moving the frame. The multi-adjustable handles can be positioned for height and width. They are close to the body giving better support, stability and a range of positions within the frame. R82’s Crocodile is designed to assist walking development for a wide range of abilities and for children with Cerebral Palsy, it is suitable for GMFCS 2-4 classification.
