The Kiddy-Up includes a child-sized SportBacker PLUS a short pair of Stretch Straps for easy long-sitting and stretching hamstrings. The Stretch Straps allow children of any age to stretch or sit comfortably erect anywhere … crosslegged or in chairs.
NOTE: For parents of children with disabilities, therapists recommend using the Kiddy-Up to aid in stretching children’s hamstrings. Because this job (that usually requires two helpers) can be done by one parent, it is more likely to get done more regularly.
The KiddyUp will fit if:
- Sitting in a Chair-your child is 48 inches or less from knee-to-knee measuring around the low back.
- Long-Sitting on Ground-your child is 80 inches or less from foot-to-foot measured around the low back.
If your child has out-grown the KiddyUp, they are ready for the S’portBacker or SlouchBuster which will fit them through adulthood. These do not include Stretch Strap accessories that must be ordered separately. (Click “Accessories” on Products page)
