We Got Rabbit

We got it!!! Our very own, insurance covered, R82 Rabbit Stander. I am so excited. This is very important for the development of Kelly's hips. Standing is important because it allows Kelly to do some weight bearing through the legs, which in-turn makes the bones stronger and stimulates the development of motor coordination and head control. I do not look at this as a bad thing at all. So, Kelly has to have a stander...that is a positive instrument that will help her to develop and grow. She is able to be eye to eye with her sisters. Ours is a dynamic stander which means it has wheels on the side that Kelly can learn to push so her stander does not stay in one place, it moves with her around the room. Very cool in my book.

That is so cool! We don't have any adaptive equipment for my daughter yet, but are hoping to get a gait trainer approved. Its such a hard road -- especially with the insurance companies, but you did it! Congrats!
