Leading UK postural support specialist, Jiraffe, has announced a new product which will help ‘change the lives’ of children across the UK and around the world.
The Sheffield based company has launched its Standz 2 by Jenx – a versatile standing system offering prone or supine standing that accommodates abducted or neutral leg positioning for children between 5 -14 years old.
Holly Jenkins, Director, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Standz 2 to market. This new product is a fantastic development making the many clinical benefits of standing accessible to even more young children.
“Standing improves blood pressure and circulation, helps digestion, encourages good bone and muscle development, provides opportunities to increase social skills and is a great and effective way to improve a child’s outlook on the world.
“Standing isn’t just one position, the easy adjustability of Standz 2 enables children to stand in multiple positions, with each one offering different benefits.
“For children unable to stand unaided Standz 2 will be a life changing product.”
Jenx Ltd, with headquarters in Hillsborough, Sheffield, is a family run company which was founded by a pediatric physiotherapist and a product designer in 1982, with the aim of enriching lives and changing perceptions about disability.
