Saddle Up! is a tailor-made postural aid for children with severe motor and trunk control difficulties who cannot stand up independently. Orthopaedic seats on the market often do not fully meet children with this disability needs due to limited adjustment between sitting and standing. Saddle Up! has a handy, lightweight and easily transportable design that allows a child to "stand without actually standing”.
