DST for Children

Dynamic Stair Trainer for Children

We find that more and more of our Dynamic Stair Trainer units (DST 8000, DST 8000 Compact) are used by rehabilitation centers for children.

Children all over the world enjoy priority when the resources of healthcare are distributed among the needy population. The main reason is that children benefit the most from intensive stair rehabilitation and physiotherapy treatment. The Dynamic Stair Trainer plays a significant role in rehabilitation for children, and is warmly embraced by physiotherapists who work with them.

Our experience shows that the Dynamic Stair Trainer can be used by children as young as four years of age.

The handrails' wide range of adjustments (both height and width can be adjusted, see WAH- Width Adjustable Hand rail) enables safe and suitable exercise environment for every child.

After working on the Dynamic Stair Trainer - DST children's confidence to negotiate stairs increases dramatically as they have experience success when ascending and descending on the DST.
