What is it?

Specialist walking / standing harness manufactured in neoprene because of its elasticity and inertness which makes this material well suited for demanding applications. The design and neoprene provide flexible support around the trunk and pelvic area.

This particular specialist harness has proven very successful for children with athetoid cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury and those with ataxic movement. Allowing for both backward as well as forward movement, this harness is particularly suited to balance therapies, is often used in rehabilitation, working in prone positions, and creates inclusion opportunities in school and family activities.

Helps improve standing tolerance, can be used for independent transfers and activities using natural patterns of movement and due to the nature of the material can be used in hydro-therapy situations.

Apply on a changing table or bed.

Bathing Cradle Review

Hi Andrew

We have had a really exciting day today: our pupil has tried the Shower Cradle in the pool and it is absolutely amazing!! We set it up this morning with the rolls and headrest ect and the pupil has just been in the water independently for the first time with the TA beside and not needing to hold on to support at all.

we have shown it to lots of staff and will now start assessing other pupils to see how many more would benefit from using the cradle. it is so adaptable with the adjustable mesh/tilt feature and the different loops to hoist it into the water and it will make such a difference to our less mobile pupils.

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”

Many thanks.  Sorry I cannot share this photo with you but take it from me she looks fab.

Good job!
