Meerkat is a fully adjustable, ergonomic simple stander that offers posterior and anterior support with the option to add a rocker under the base. This rocker provides a dynamic element for children, so they can move forwards and backwards – challenging their balance and improving core stability. Based on a well-established theory*, this rocking action enhances development particularly in walking and standing. The rocker can be positioned to change a child’s centre of gravity hence a greater range of movement and development is achieved. The Meerkat employs controlled instability to facilitate a learning environment.
