By standing in the Squiggles+, children bear their weight through their bones and joints, which helps shape them while increasing their strength.
Evidence would suggest that standing has a beneficial effect on hip joint formation. Standing stretches tight muscles and provides an alternative position. Socially, standing is also important as it enables interaction with their peers at the same level.
New features include: An activity tray with improved height and adjustability, a new height-adjustable push handle, which can be lowered for prone use, an improved pivot chassis, which facilitates horizontal loading, accommodates hip abduction, a new foot pedal to ease carer effort and a larger, more comfortable medial knee supports to distribute pressure, especially in abducted standing.
