Add-A-Bands are an assistive device designed to facilitate the development of normal movement patterns in children with low muscle tone and/or lax hip ligaments. The latter may contribute to excessive flexibility making it difficult to develop an adequate base of support from which to attain a good position to move. Consequently, a child may have difficulty moving with ease and efficiency, and undesirable habits may develop such as moving from sitting to lying through the middle of wide split legs. When properly adjusted, Add-A-Bands facilitate the optimal base of support at the knees and/or feet of a child when the spacing of his or her legs is excessively wide. Combinations of movements at the hip joints are then permitted without restriction other than limiting excessive widening.
Add-A-Bands can also be used as a positioning assist to limit excessive widening of the legs with children experiencing muscle weakness or paralysis from nerve damage.
