Grand(e) way to enjoy family life….

One of the hardest things for parents of a disabled child is a way for them to be fully included in daily family life, the normal activities such as cuddling on the settee, watching a film together. All with proper and correct posture support…

There is an answer to the problem: AAT’s Grande infinitely remouldable posture cushion.

A cushion- but so much more

In essence a mattress-sized beanbag, unlike alternative fixed-mould systems, Grande can be quickly and easily formed at home, by the care giver(1)

You can adjust the shape as little or much as needed, as often as needed, depending on the activity- whether using a smart tablet through to physiotherapy.  

You can form Grande to create abduction and adduction wedges.

The child is correctly and comfortably positioned in every position, without pressure points, from upright to prone and everything inbetween.

Grande delivers constant support and stability, even during extension or spasm. 

You can even fold Grande to create a chair on the floor, a seat on the settee, optimising inclusion in daily life.

As it's manufactured from neoprene, you can wipe Grande clean. Its construction also enables transference of sound and vibration, providing sensory stimulation.

Grande is also light enough for you to move it from room to room.

The combination of Grande’s benefits means the child is able to enjoy time out of their wheelchair as part of a 24-hour care programme. Anecdotal evidence reports reduced levels of fatigue, reduced levels of frustration and improved range of movement.

“For children requiring postural management, Grande can be an essential answer to many seating problems, because of its diversity of use, high degree of musculoskeletal support and ease of adjustment,” says Peter Wingrave AAT Director.
