SOS are pleased to announce the latest version of the innovative Equipose straddle seat is now available
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 effect 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.
Children with poor sitting balance can achieve a more stable position on the equipoise due to reduced flexion in the posture, improving seating balance and function.
The new equipoise features thick velco bands for positioning, adjustable foot supports, angle adjustable tray, saddle support and mobile tilt in space base.
