Boogie Drive is the first growable standing aid for children and adolescents. It furthers alternatively the sensory awareness of an upright pose with mobility at the same time. Thanks to its growing option it is growable 4 cm without additional parts and can be used into adolescence for the straightening therapy.
While developing the Boogie Drive, easy handling and setting for the therapists was important to us. The tilt can be adjusted in angle steplessly with a gas pressure spring or telescope from 0° to 15° and through the easy and individual setting of the truss pads and foot plates you can react to each necessary therapy form. The Boogie Drive helps its users to form a positive attitude through mobile standing.
Three frame sizes
No child enters the world to then lie in bed the rest of their life. The opposite is the case. Small children have the natural urge to get up and learn to walk – despite all the pain. A child that cannot upright itself due to their impairment needs an aid that can alternatively mediate the sensory awareness. It is offered in 3 standard sizes and is therefore an ideal standing aid for children and adolescents with a height from 80 to 150 cm.
The Boogie Drive supports the therapeutic concept of (early) mobility in an upright pose. With the support according to the three-point-method for an upright pose a careful and controlled strain to the bones and the whole musculature takes place. Even inactive muscels are activated, strained and stimulated. At the same time the balance system is stimulated by the upright pose, a fundamental requirement for the physical and cognitive development of a person. First with the perception of the 3-dimensional changes in a room the children can experience: up/down, back/front, right/left. From this they learn: side regulation, balance control, reflex control and as a result the build of a controllable muscle tone.
With this stimulation:
- a side dominance (parallel alignment, no diametric orientation and activity possible),
- a reflex interference (voluntary and/or involuntary movement patterns),
- an impaired perception in the sense of space and in sensory (the child can only partly attribute its limbs to its self and actually use them as “tools”)
can be worked against.
The danger of scoliosis, decubitus ulcers, trauma, spasms, cardiovascular, metabolism and/or digestive insufficiency etc. is distinctly reduced by this. Boogie Drive supports the strengthening and stabilizing of the metabolism, the cardiovascular system, the sense of balance, perception, reflex control, the digestive system and breathing. The use of less strength when driving due to the large wheels, the ergonomically ideal shoulder-driving wheel-position, its maneuverability in the smallest space, its child and development suitable, growable dimensions allow the therapeutically sensible use starting in the earliest child years. With the growable frame sizes the upright-therapy can continue into adulthood.
