This product is very useful following orthopedic surgery or neurosurgery when strengthening is necessary to develop better ambulation. We have found scooting on the KAYE Scoot-About to be a wonderful way to develop strength in the hamstrings following dorsal rhizotomy or hamstring lengthenings. Since the seat is adjustable in height, the child can be positioned with the appropriate amount of hip and knee flexion for movement. In addition, this scooter makes a comfortable, stable therapy stool when a parent or therapist is assisting ambulation.

The new, adjustable, removable Back Support for the Kaye Scoot-About provides support at the pelvis for children when seated on the Scoot-About. The back and side supports adjust in height and width to give optimal vertical alignment for the pelvis and trunk. Adding this accessory assures that when a child is seated on the Scoot-About, that the seat depth supports the entire thigh on the seat surface. The adjustable height of the posterior support maintains the pelvis in a vertical position and the adjustable lateral supports minimize asymmetry of the trunk as a child scoots around on the Scoot-About. This accessory makes the Scoot-About a useful mobile seat for children as they practice propelling themselves with their feet. This accessory is removable so that the Scoot-About can still be used by parents and therapists. Attaches to any Kaye Scoot-About.
