Stability in motion

Dondolino is a vertical stander with tilting frame for children with special needs, designed and manufactured by Ormesa to help the child acquire the upright position. Using Dondolino in everyday life contexts makes the child’s active participation in the social environment easy, aiding the mobility of upper limbs and head, in line with the individual motor development skills.

Thanks to the three available sizes and a broad range of adjustment, Dondolino can adapt:

To growth

To the development of individual skills

To the bending needs of hips and knees

Our community

Getting to know each other through play: the story of Pietro

Pietro is an eleven-year-old boy who has been afflicted with infantile cerebral palsy resulting in quadriplegia since birth. We went to visit him at his home in Valfabbrica, in the province of Perugia, where we were greeted by a whirlwind of energy. Both in indoor and outdoor spaces, the Dondolino proved to be of fundamental importance for enhancing Pietro’s motor, postural and relational skills.

Tailored support

Resilient and smart technology

The Dondolino structure can be adapted to various postural needs. Via a gas piston, it is possible to switch from the upright position to a more pronating position in order to induce the active control of the head and the trunk. Such variations to the alignment can be applied in a completely fluid way even with the child on the frame, without causing pathological reactions due to postural discomfort.
