CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a means of strengthening thigh muscles for children with lower extremity disabilities. The child stands in front of the table with one foot forward and one foot back in the walking position. An object of interest to the child is placed on the table in front of the child, requiring him/her to lunge to reach it. The wooden table is equipped with sliding legs for height adjustability, and the legs lock to a base plate to prevent the table from being knocked over. The table has a semi-circular cutout with adjustable side panels. A wide fabric belt helps keep the child from falling. A system similar to tongue-and-groove flooring, enables footcups to be mounted on the base, slid into the desired position, and locked in position with a wing nut. An extra pair of footcups can be stored under the table when not in use. DIMENSIONS: The table height adjusts from 650 to 900 millimeters (mm). The base plate is 1200 x 900 mm. TITLE: Happy Seating. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 27, Number 3, October 2007: p. 9-12. PAGES: 5. (including cover).
