Multistander – Supine/prone/upright standing system

The Multistander by Jenx offers exceptional growth and the versatile range of accessories mean that the Multistander will easily meet the changing needs of a growing child for many years.

Ease of Transfer
To aid a lone carer in using the Multistander all support pads have been cleverly designed to be easily moved, or removed to prevent them from being a barrier to safe and dignified transfers for the child. Once safely held by the product the support pads can be moved to provide the optimal corrective positioning. The Multistander is able to recline to virtually horizontal, enabling easy lifting or hoist transfers of the user on to the Multistander.
The Size 2 has the option of a robust manual base or a powered base to assist in bringing the user back up to the required supine (or prone) angle.
Trunk and Pelvic Positioning
The key to supporting any vulnerable posture is effective control of the trunk and pelvis. The Multistander uses a variety of different sized support pads to offer a firm and supportive lateral guide to promote mid-line or neutral body symmetry. For those children who already present with an asymmetrical posture these support pads can be off-set to accommodate the asymmetry and reduce the risk of further deterioration or to encourage a return to a more neutral position. In addition to the lateral guide each pair of support pads comes with an incorporated de-rotational strap. These straps offer the facility to rotate the pelvis and trunk into a neutral position and hold the child in a safe and comfortable position.
To achieve a good postural seating position, the head and neck need to be in a central positioning.
Head support should aim to keep the neck straight and the chin lifted slightly to enable interaction with the surrounding environment and peers.
A good supporting head position can facilitate:
All types of interaction
Greater awareness of what’s happening around them
Concentration skills (speech, listening, focus on activities)
Functional motor skills
Respiration and digestion
Better visibility of (and therefore interest in) immediate environment
Maintenance of correct posture therefore preventing postural deformities
Improved swallow reflex
When used in Supine the Multistander utilises a variety of different head support options, for minimal to moderate head control there is the PU moulded head support which provides a contoured head pad to promote a mid-line head position. For those who require a much greater support, the Jenx Multigrip™ headrest offers a unique and pioneering design and is available in 3 different sizes to suit all ages and head sizes. Within the padded and washable cover are “fingers” that can be moved, moulded and firmly locked into place to create an infinite variety of support shapes that can control ATNR, help with feeding and respiration and give the child an improved opportunity to engage with their surrounds. Every head support for the Multistander comes mounted on a highly flexible bracket to allow for infinite and accurate head positioning.
Optional Abduction Accessory
Multistander size 1 now offers the option of abduction which allows 0-30 degrees of individual leg abduction in 5 degree increments. Available as either a standalone accessory to retrofit to existing Multistanders manufactured after 2015 or as a complete base unit ready to customise with accessories. The addition of the abduction accessory now ensures Multistander by Jenx offers children the opportunity to continue standing at peer height in either a neutral or abducted hip position.
The Multistander’s two size options now provide a product that can take a child from approximately 9 months up to 6 years for the Size 1 and 3 years to 13 years for the Size 2.
This versatility in growth means the Multistander offers a product that can grow larger, wider, narrower and accommodate a heavier child than most other complete standing products on the market. The new size 2 can be used by a child at the start of their school life and grows with them until they are 13 years old – providing a great 10 years of growth.
Infinite Angle Adjustment
Each child will have a slightly different posture in standing and need slightly different, tailored support. The angle of the support surface can be adjusted from 10 degrees off horizontal through to upright at 90 degrees. This adjustment is infinite within that range to ensure the exact angle necessary for a child can be achieved. This enables progress to be monitored and the angle of the board altered in line with their ability.
