Etac R82 has achieved success at the annual British Healthcare Trades Association Awards – winning a 'Highly Commended' Best Product accolade for its paediatric R82 Meerkat dynamic stander.
A strong proposal was submitted to the BHTA Best Product category as the Meerkat has proven highly successful since its 2017 launch. It is a fully adjustable, ergonomic simple stander that offers posterior and anterior support with the option to add a rocker under the base. This rocker provides a dynamic element for disabled children, so they can move forwards and backwards – challenging their balance and improving core stability. Following eight years of research and development by R82, the Meerkat now delivers a significant development in paediatric standing frames as it bridges the gap between static and dynamic therapy.
