By: Special Kiwis  09-12-2011

HDLA stands for Human Daily Life Activities: Eating, Hygiene, Dressing up, Transport and Interaction. Our standing frames are designed to assist on those activities, improving the general well being and quality of life for people with disabilities such as Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Spinal Chord Injuries, etc.

A standing position brings health and social benefits like:

  •  A better social interaction
  •  Self confidence by being face to face with others.
  •  Children can use the activity tray to play, draw, read, eat, etc.
  •  Improved muscular tone and reduced spasticity
  •  Can help to correct postural asymmetry
  •  Better blood flow to muscles and bones
  •  Bones get more calcium decreasing risk of osteoporosis
  •  Achieve physical balance skills
  •  Improved digestion and bowel function
  •  Improved vesicular and renal function
  •  Prevention of bed and pressure sores
