Multi-purpose seat for older kids and teenagers
With all of the features and benefits of Splashy, SplashyBIG opens up many more opportunities for 7-14 year olds who want to participate in fun activities with friends and family.
As your child gets older, SplashyBIG can help promote and encourage independence at bath time. Bathing as opposed to showering can facilitate a more dignified approach to washing because it allows your child to control their experience which promotes independent self-care skills and encourages improved self-esteem and well-being.
SplashyBIG can also be used in the shower or outdoors to give your child access to new environments – it can provide postural support at the beach while your child feels the waves on their feet or digs their toes into the sand.

Our clinical team have put together a few suggestions for you to try out with SplashyBIG, plus some points on the benefits of bath time.
As children get older, they can require more advanced levels of postural control/support. This can be as a result of a specific condition or a change in muscle tone or strength.
The programme contains some suggestions that will help manage some specifically seen presentations.
