Mobile Stander

Most of you know that Caleb had tethered cord release surgery in April of 2012, so it's been about 2 1/2 years since his detethering. Most of you also know that prior to the surgery Caleb was standing and walking very well with just his AFO's and walker. And you also know that Caleb pretty much lost all function from the waist down after TC and it has been a long hard road of therapy and rehabilitation. Caleb still isn't where he was....and he may never be...but he continues to get stronger. I really wanted a way for Caleb to be upright for longer periods of time. He has KAFO's that he can stand in but he does fatigue quickly so I wanted something that would allow him to stand and move freely. I present the mobile stander!

This is a loaner that we received through our local SB clinic. Basically Caleb is strapped in and supported in a standing position. It allows him to be upright and mobile at the same time. Now this isn't our first time using a mobile stander....but as you can see, it's been a few years. :)

Oh my. I can't stand the cuteness of that chunky 18 month old on the left! When did he get so big? I blinked and he was nine. Seriously. 

Caleb loves the mobile stander. He's spinning circles in this pic. I think he just loves being so tall and mobile at the same time. 

Little bro had to hitch a ride.
