Prone Plus was developed to meet the prone positioning needs of hospitalized infants. It assists in proper prone positioning and ventral support (important aspects in the Developmental Care of infants) by using the natural force of gravity.
The unique shape of the Prone Plus facilitates natural rounding of the shoulders, hand-to-mouth coordination, and head and trunk alignment. These are all important components in the support of infant development. Using Prone Plus allows the infant's legs to remain tucked with pelvis tilted forward, and promotes flexion of the extremities without placing excessive pressure on knees and elbows.
