Designed with the caregiver in mind, ShonaHold is a positioning tool that delivers high-quality postural care for children with physical disability in southern Africa. Our system provides a simple interface for the carer to consistently position the child, while its color-coded components are used to inform this complicated task. Finally, ShonaHold utilizes the child’s own body weight to secure the modular positioning pieces to an existing mattress, allowing a smaller overall package, lower shipping volume, and ultimately a more affordable price to the purchaser.
