EARLY INTERVENTION
Children develop skills as they grow. They roll over, begin to crawl, and learn to walk etc. however children that are affected with a physical disability are slower or may never achieve these skills. Early intervention applies to children from birth to school age who are discovered be at risk of developing a handicapping condition or other conditions that may affect their development. Early intervention consists in the provision of services for children and their families with the purpose of lessening the effects of the condition. Early intervention can be remedial or preventive in nature, remediating existing developmental problems or preventing their occurrence.

WHY INTERVENE EARLY?
Discovery gives the child the best start in life through proven early intervention. Appropriate seating equipment for young children with physical disabilities is imperative to provide an optimal seated position from which they may engage in functional activities. International research has verified the benefits of adaptive seating to include improved postural alignment, development of motor skills, helping the prevention of fixed deformity and facilitation of upper extremity function. It is vital to comprehend the seating principles that dictate the sitting postures of children and young people and the impact they have on long term health and function.

ONE SEAT WITH MANY APPLICATIONS
Our philosophy is to care for the child right throughout the day within one seat, that’s why the Discovery seat can be interfaced into any of the 4 bases saving on resources and the need to purchase additional equipment.

MAKING IT EASY FOR THE THERAPIST
The therapist can work with the family on the journey through effective early intervention and continual clinical follow up knowing that the Discovery’s seating can be ‘tuned’ and adjusted easily and the child grows.

POSTURE IS PARAMOUNT
We know that posture is so important for these kids with physical disabilities and we want to meet the desires of the therapist and family so that the child’s sitting posture improves and develops. With seating the child early as possible in the Discovery will help to maintain good postural management to help prevent complications such as contractures and structural changes in the skeletal system while improving daily quality of life no matter how complex their disabilities.

Children with moderate to severe physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy and developmental delay etc. can benefit from the Discovery’s ability to provide optimum pelvic stability, trunk/head alignment and good leg and foot positioning.
