A supportive standing device for paediatric therapy
Boogie Swing is a stationary standing device for children and adolescents with heights of 80cm to 150 cm. It provides:
Configurable design to meet a wide range of unique user needs
A centre column that can be adjusted infinitely, with a gas pressure spring, up to 30° forward.
A range of individually adjustable body positioning aids.
Precision adjustment through infinite positioning of functions including footplate.
With the 3D footplates, Talipes equinus can be compensated
The Boogie concept supports the therapeutic concept of (early) mobility in an upright pose.
To learn to stand with the SORG standing devices.
The standing device Boogie Swing supports the users in taking on an upright position and keeping it with their own strength. The easy handling of the stationary standing device simplifies the use of all relevant therapy forms. Thanks to the easy and individual truss pads and footplates, an upright position can be made possible, close to natural standing. Boogie Swing guarantees an upright positioning which allows the user to take part in the benefits of standing.
Standing device with easy handling
While developing the Boogie Swing, easy handling and setting for the therapists were important to us. The tilt can be adjusted in angle steplessly with a gas pressure spring from 0° to 30°, and through the easy and individual setting of the truss pads and footplates, you can react to each necessary therapy form. The Boogie Swing helps its users to form a positive attitude through stationary standing.
Standing device in three sizes
Our stationary standing devices Boogie Swing and Boogie Fix are available in 3 sizes for user heights from 80 cm to 150 cm. So the Boogie Fix and the forward tiltable Boogie Swing are the perfect standing aids for children and adolescents.
The transport of a standing device is effortless, thanks to the pre-mounted transport wheels. Optionally, Boogie Swing and Boogie Fix can also be equipped with steerable casters. With a maximum available width of 64 cm, Boogie Swing fits through most doors.
The Boogie concept supports the therapeutic concept of an upright pose. A careful and controlled strain to the bones and the whole musculature occurs with the support according to the three-point method for an upright pose. Even inactive muscles are activated, strained and stimulated. At the same time, the balance system is stimulated by the upright pose, a fundamental requirement for a person’s physical and cognitive development. 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:
Aside from 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 itself 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 supports the strengthening and stabilizing of the metabolism, the cardiovascular system, the sense of balance, perception, reflex control, the digestive system and breathing. Growable dimensions allow therapeutically sensible use starting in the earliest childhood years.
