Appropriate neurodevelopmental positioning enhances physiological and behavioural tolerance of NICU interventions, decreases stress and supports the developing brain of the infant. The flexed position of the baby in utero is the basis for all future movement, yet difficult to achieve outside the womb.
The Dandle ROO2 is a circumferential system that supports prone, supine and side-lying positions all in one device. It helps to position babies in a manner that supports not only the musculoskeletal and motor systems, but also aids and facilitates sleep and neurodevelopment.
The Dandle ROO2 optimises opportunities for preterm infants to be contained in a flexed, midline position with the ability to move and return to flexion. This contributes to physical growth, reduces stress and agitation, decreases energy needs and helps to promote the formation of healthy neuronal pathways.
