If your child is going to be lying in this equipment supine (back lying), bear in mind that this position presents challenges for your child to observe their environment and play with toys. Try and provide your child with a variety of visually stimulating objects such as mobiles. Providing a slight angle (e.g. with a foam wedge) can be helpful so that your child can observe their environment.7
As every child who needs this equipment will have unique and often complex needs, it should only be used under the guidance of an occupational therapist or physiotherapist.3, 4 & 5
