The Chailey Standing Support is designed in the upright position to promote normal movement as this provides the best position for learning to stand.
The ability to stand upright develops from a balanced, forward lean position, where the upper trunk weight is forward over the standing base. Feet are plantargrade and slightly apart. Knees and hips are slightly flexed with femora in a vertical position.
As stability around the pelvis and lower limbs develops, the child can practise upper trunk, head and upper limb movements, enabling them to play in a developmentally normal position.
