Caribou

Caribou

The Caribou is a standing frame that supports a prone or supine standing position. With its ability to switch from a horizontal to a vertical position, the Caribou is designed to accommodate a wide range of users.

A good standing position can be achieved for people with, for instance, spasticity, contractions and circulatory deficiencies.

The Caribou is built with a base board and a series of optional upper body supports to provide the optimum freedom of movement. Further accessories are available to meet the postural support needs of the user.

The Caribou is available in four sizes and suitable for children and young people.
