Lily Mae Hip Abduction Case Study with R82 Gazelle Standing Frame by Frances George, Physiotherapist

Frances George, physiotherapist at Humberstone Park Special School, Grimsby has been working with Lily Mae (4 years) who has had a dislocated left hip since birth as well as other health issues.

Lily Mae had no independent sitting balance and was in supine position at 30° off upright. She started using Gazelle at home over Easter, standing upright to 85° for periods of 15 minutes increasing in recent months to 1.5+ hours daily which can be split into different sessions.

Following a further tendon release in September, Lily Mae will use the Gazelle to maintain further hip abduction and hopefully improve her MP.
