The new and improved Equipoise now available
SOS are pleased to showcase our latest version of the innovative Equipose straddle seat at the PMG Event. The Equipoise Straddle seat introduces an alternative approach to functional seating for children with complex postures.
Whilst conventional seating adopts a 90/90 sitting posture, the straddle seat is based on the position adopted during horse riding. The effict of reducing the hip flexion automatically produces a lordosis and puts the exterior muscle groups at an advantage. This places the child in an enhanced position of balance and minimises the effect of sitting with a poor centre of gravity, common in conventional sitting posture.
