Product Description

The R82 Meerkat is a simple upright standing frame with a big difference. It comes standard with an innovative Rocker Base to help develop dynamic postural control! The Rocker Base can be added to the base plate as desired to allow the child to move forwards and back in a rocking motion. It is very easy to mount under the base plate and can be mounted while the child is in the standing frame. The Meerkat design is straight forward and intuitive, making it user friendly for both the child and the caregiver. Postural support for knees, pelvis and chest are easy to adjust using a ratchet system that offers quick and secure adjustments in small increments without tools. Growth and changes in the user’s ability are easily accommodated because the modular components can be adjusted, added and removed so quickly. This also makes the Meerkat a great piece of equipment for multi-user environments. The Meerkat can be configured to offer support in front of or behind the user (anterior or posterior). It comes in 3 sizes and is appropriate for children from approximately 12 months old through approximately 18 years old. Maximum user weight is 198 pounds (90 kg) and maximum overall height is approximately 71” (180 cm). Users require at least fair head control and developing trunk control as available structural support ends at mid-chest/ just under axilla (armpit) with optional chest support. The low entrance height of the Meerkat ensures safe, easy transfers.

From a therapeutic stand point, the Meerkat effectively bridges the gap between static standers and gait trainers. It is a piece of equipment that can provide functional strengthening strategies for core muscles in a dynamic context. With the lower half of the body well aligned and stable, the child’s upper body freedom of movement is encouraged in the playful manner of rocking. It’s fun to rock! Dynamic core strengthening activities like this are foundational in physical therapy programs. Functional use of the body in upright positions in directly dependent on core stability. To build core strength and endurance children require frequent opportunities to challenge and strengthen the muscles of their trunk. Rocking also provides a soothing sensory experience while offering vestibular input that helps the nervous system to mature and improves a child’s balance and equilibrium reactions.

Proper pelvic positioning is the cornerstone in upright postures. The Pelvic Support attaches to the telescoping column and is adjustable for height and width. It has a Velcro closure and a strap with a side release buckle. The Pelvic Support also has a ratchet system that offers quick and secure adjustments in small increments using one hand, ideal for controlling pelvic rotation.
