Peder (6) was born with CP and was previously unable to climb stairs independently - until he received the TOPRO Step stair climbing aid

Contents

Peder was born with CP and previously needed help and support from an adult when climbing stairs. With the TOPRO Step mechanical stair climbing aid, he managed to climb the stairs all by himself the first time he tried it out.

Peder's home was adapted to his needs

Like most children with CP, Peder has problems with his gross motor skills. This makes it difficult for him to crawl, walk, sit or jump. Although he can do many things independently, he has never been able to climb the stairs on his own. When the family came across the TOPRO Step mechanical stair climber, there was suddenly hope that he would be able to do just that.

So they applied for support from the Norwegian Central Office for Assistive Products to adapt their home to Peder's needs.

The TOPRO Step mechanical stair climber has not only enabled him to finally walk up the stairs by himself, but has also improved his gait and built up his core muscles. According to his mother, using the TOPRO Step stair climber has improved both his core muscles and his posture. He can now walk up and down the stairs independently and with great pleasure.

Since Peder has been using the TOPRO Step stair climbing aid, I have noticed a big difference when he climbs stairs. He has more strength in his core muscles and his posture has improved a lot.

What is infantile cerebral palsy?

Infantile cerebral palsy (CP) is a collective term for a number of conditions with altered motor function and is based on damage to the brain in early childhood (up to the age of 2 years). An important criterion for the diagnosis is that the brain damage does not worsen, but is static (not progressive). The severity of the diagnosis depends on the size and location of the damage. Out of 1000 children born, about 2-3 children have or will have CP.

As a rule, the entire body of CP patients is affected by the movement disorder. Sometimes predominantly one side of the body or both legs, less frequently predominantly one arm or one leg. The degree of movement disorder can vary greatly depending on the severity and duration of the oxygen deficiency. In the most severe cases, standing and walking and often even sitting and using the hands are not possible or at least very difficult. In less severe cases, the movement disorder manifests itself in activities that place particular demands on general mobility and balance and in skills such as writing, drawing or manual dexterity.
