Equipment supplier Etac R82 is set to showcase its new mobile standing frame at Kidz to Adultz Middle later this month.

The R82 Rabbit Up is a new prone frame that provides both static and mobile standing and is designed to offer greater flexibility and freedom for young users.

Its robust design is suitable for use indoors and out and includes self-propel removable wheels for independent mobility.

The wheels have been designed with closed push rims and an adjustable camber angle for easier propulsion – enhanced by a narrow frame for better manoeuvrability.

When a stationary position is required, the wheels can quickly be removed by a caregiver or parent, so ergonomic access to school desks and play tables is possible

The Rabbit Up facilitates eye-level engagement with able bodied children hence promoting greater participation and inclusion.

Through its adaptable prone support, children benefit from standing therapy and the ability to enhance motor skills and upper body muscle function.

This exercise is increased with the addition of self-propel wheels whilst safety is assured with four stabilising castors.

Independence provides greater opportunity to explore and enjoy new experiences – vital for positivity and well-being.

The R82 Rabbit Up can be configured to suit the individual needs of children aged one to eighteen and is available in four sizes.
