About Little Balance Box™

As a practicing Physical Therapist and mother of two I felt there had to be a safer and more natural way for children to move from sitting to standing and walking. I watched my second child attempt to use both seated and push walkers and noticed several deficiencies. The seated walker severely restricted her movement and inhibited her natural transitions between sitting, standing and walking. On the other hand, she had trouble reaching the handle bar of the push walker, which interfered with her transition to a standing position. Moreover, once she achieved a standing position controlling and maneuvering the push walker with the single handle bar and fast moving wheels proved extremely difficult and sometimes dangerous. With these problems and limitations in mind I began to tinker with various forms with the goal of creating a walker that enables a child to move naturally through the transitions from sitting, standing and walking. A year later the Little Balance Box™ was born!

The Little Balance Box™ is unique because it allows children to use their hands and/or forearms in a variety of positions and from any direction to maximize stability and develop balance. The floating feet provided feedback during transitions from kneeling to standing and also allow the Little Balance Box™ to seamlessly move with your child across various surfaces such as carpet, tile, and wood. The Little Balance Box™ can an also be used as a toddler table. The top surface is easy to clean and the raised frame helps keep little items in place.

Keep on moving. Sit, stand, push, walk with the Little Balance Box™!!
