New supportive Jenx product sets a benchmark

Jenx has launched a new bright, simple and flexible Therapy Bench to help offer children real benefit without the need to undergo formal assessment.

Available from Jiraffe, the newly updated Jenx Therapy Bench was launched at the recent Kidz North held at EventCity, Manchester.

The new product offers a range of therapy activities and is available in two different sizes with a half and full length option in each size and to suit children of all ages and a max load weight of 85kg. Both sizes are height adjustable with secure locking legs. There are also three interchangeable flat cushions, or the option of a half round cushion, which ensure its versatility in a multiuser environment. The cushions are all upholstered in easy, clean, water repellent vinyl, which contains an antimicrobial agent to help with infection control.

Holly Jenkins, Jenx Sales Operations Manager, said: “We are delighted to launch the new Therapy Bench from Jenx, which offers an ideal platform for a variety of different activities such as sitting and balance therapy, dynamic sitting balance and sitting posture improvement.

“The innovative design enables therapists to sit with a child on the bench to offer extra support if required, while the flat top cushion can be used for balance and stretching. In addition it can work well when children have circle time, as the bench can be used instead of a child having to sit in their chair, which means they can be more involved with activities and are at a much more similar height to peers.”

Kidz North is a free event offering support to young adults with disabilities and additional needs up to the age of 25. More than 150 exhibitors were in attendance to offer advice and information on funding, seating, beds, mobility and much more.
