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.
