The challenge

Child's positioning boardA child with cerebral palsy enjoys spending time playing out of her chair on the floor. Related to the palsy, she has a muscle tone problem which makes it difficult to lie straight, and so she cannot play comfortably.

A positioning board was made in the form of a wedge, with a rear height adjustable up to 450mm, on which the appropriate soft furnishings can be placed.

She can now play as she wants, in different positions, untroubled by her inability to lie straight.
