Discussions that mention botox

Cerebral Palsy board


Has anyone heard of this?? My sons physio mentioned it to me and I purchased one online. It is actually designed to give back support to adults who sit at the computer a lot. But my son is only three and we have adjusted it.
It's not actually a chair but a padding that goes around your lower back and attached to that are straps that loop around both feet so the child can sit straight with legs out front to stretch the hamstrings. My son loves it and it really works. The straps have a lot of room for growth so it would fit up to approx 10 -12 yo. It's hard to describe (or I'm just bad at it) but I'm sure if anyone is interested you can check it out. They are made in Australia but mail worldwide.
It's a great therapy tool if they are sitting quietly with a video or to practise side playing with crossing arms.
I don't normally promote things but have found this great to avoid w sitting and I used it after botox to limber him up.
I'll try out your suggestion for play, it is quite appropriate as I am forever trying to encourage Timothy to load and unload things. Timothys therapist was quite impressed with the Nada chair, hadn't seen it before and is showing it around the other therapists. We also went for a consult for botox and serial casts and showed it to the surgeon we saw. It will be very useful for working on Timothys hamstrings while he is in casts for 6 weeks after the botox. So thanks again! A very useful recommendation.

Hi Donna

Hi 'Batty' I am in Rotorua. I'd be interested to know more about your son and the services you have access to in Wellington. We have good early intervention and Timothy goes to hippotherapy twice a week and music therapy once a week. We had to travel to auckland on wednesday to see a paed opthalmologist as there isn't one in Rotorua and travel to Tauranga for the orthopod appointments and that is where we will go when we get an appointment for botox.
Cheers
