Multi-Function Activity Table™
The Support Bench is a fully adjustable support for the upper torso, allowing the child to lie prone with their hands free, promoting midline hand activity. This provides true Active Learning “tummy time”, with unique support, freeing arms and reducing weight bearing on legs. Used on a Resonance Board with the Essef Board at the learner’s feet. Includes two main wood board assemblies (7″ and 10″ wide) to fit small and larger learners.The removable clear head support may be used by those with poor head control, and still leaves arms free. Adjustable height and angle, removable casters. Custom welded. Made in the USA. Varies slightly from illustration.
