Medical devices for children
Individual fitting solutions from Ottobock help your child develop optimally and participate in social life. They help your child develop its autonomy and independent activity while avoiding malpositions. Their primary purpose is to promote your child's mobility (therapists speak of "verticalisation" here, which means getting up against the force of gravity); this is a fundamental requirement for your child's overall development.
A child's motor development takes place in individual stages that follow a natural time sequence. They can be approximated as lying, sitting, standing and ultimately, independent locomotion in the form of walking. Delayed development by definition slows down subsequent progress. Some delays can even cause irreparable damage, for example the improper development of a child's hip. Such a malposition can occur for example when proper hip development fails to take place.
An optimised selection of medical devices provides you with suitable corresponding products for every age, the respective state of development and all everyday situations. In short: preventing improper development by providing the support of medical devices as early as possible pays off for the rest of your child's life.
With our innovative medical devices, we offer your child the opportunity for optimum development.
The Kimba Neo provides your child with the required support while travelling, offers relief and even makes therapy easier. It absorbs jolts and can be individually adjusted for nearly every need.
The Nurmi Neo is our most popular walker (often called a “gait trainer”). Designed for everyday use at home, at school or on the go, it can turn on a sixpence.
The Skippi power wheelchair promotes mobility and encourages participation for children who are unable to drive a wheelchair themselves. Your child can explore its surroundings and is able to move freely and play with other children.
