The Happy Strap has been designed as an aid for infants and children with hypotonia (low muscle tone) to assist the control ligament laxity and joint flexibility in the hips. Essentially the Happy Strap assists in keeping the legs in the correct position in relation to the hips. A degree of stability is given to the hips by the Happy Strap and this greatly assists in stabilising little bodies and helping them through their developmental milestones of sitting, rolling over, crawling and walking. Worn while sleeping it counteracts any tendency of the legs to splay.  The adjustable Happy Strap may be worn either over or under clothing, day and night for maximum benefit. The Happy Strap is pre-washed for comfort.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
