The 5” wide Velcro positioning straps provide support when positioning the child. Without the removable straps, the deluxe wedge functions just like the standard Skillbuilders wedge.
Wedges are an ideal positioning shape for physically involved children. They are also a versatile shape for gross motor activities like tumbling, rolling or walking. The Deluxe Strap Wedge can be used with optional abductor wedge (30-1018). Also suitable as physical therapy positioning wedges.
Adaptive Positioning provides stability and support for individuals lacking some degree of body control. It is a prerequisite for achieving greater gross and fine motor skills. Wedges perform equally well for prone and supine activities. Choose the length and height of the wedge by considering what weight should be borne on the forearms and what extension the head, neck, and trunk should elicit.
