Looking for equipment reviews/advice

Postby special-son » Sat Aug 26, 2006 11:20 pm

My son needs a stander, gait trainer, and special seating. We're living in Korea, so I'm trying to research products on-line. I am trying to find a source with reviews on special needs products (similar to E-opinion.com), but haven't found one yet.

I'm looking for personal experience with products such as: Rifton Prone Stander, Rifton Gait Trainer (plastic version), Special Tomato MPS, Snug seat Pony gait trainer, and any other product that has worked well for people.

I'm also looking for links to sites that review such equipment.

Thank you for any assistance/advice.

Sarah has a gait trainer from Rifton. Its WONDERFUL!! You have to get used to a small line across all your walls. My daughter likes to touch the wall (the texture) so she drags the gait trainer and it peels a little of the paint on the wall. LOL! But its wonderful because she cannot get around otherwise. This really helped build some independance with her. We also saw some fine motor skills increase because of this 'freedom' she has. Good luck!
