Therapeutic Ambulatory Orthotic System (TAOS) 


TAOS
The Therapeutic Ambulatory Orthotic System (TAOS) is designed to aid the individual with neuromotor impairments, including cerebral palsy encouraging upright hands free standing or ambulation.  The TAOS has two parts, an Orthotic and a Mobility Base.  These two components work together to provide a unique therapy tool, as well as expansion of the child’s mobility. 

 

The system has a sit-to-stand and “easy dock” system for joining the orthotic to the Mobility Base.  This feature makes the system easier to get into particularly with larger children.  The Mobility Base comes in three sections with simple quick-release levers.  This enables breakdown within  a short period of timeand will fgit into even the compact car trunk.  Reassembly takes very little time, as well.

 

Benefits from the use of the TAOS are numerous.
