Carissa and I are all about MOM-ing smarter, not harder and DIY-ing items to help our children. This including building a PVC Hand Rail for our Hypervibe vibration plate. After my son’s SDR Surgery, see my posts here about the surgery, his surgeon recommended getting a vibration plate to help with stretching and exercise. Also, to be honest, it is pretty fun.
We decided to go with the Hypervibe G10, one of the vibration plates recommended by his surgeon. So far we love the Hypervibe for a few reason…
- They send you A LOT of helpful information.
- It comes with a great APP full of exercises.
- If you buy it post SDR surgery, they also send you SDR resources. I will never turn down more resources or information!
Upon getting the vibration plate we knew we’d have to help our son balance on it. We have had success with PVC pipe before so we decided to build a PVC Hand Rail for the Hypervibe plate. It worked PERFERTLY! It was inexpensive, easy to build and could be custom built to my son’s height.
If you want to learn more about vibration plates and cerebral palsy, this is a great Facebook group, Cerebral Palsy + Vibration therapy, with a lot of information and helpful members.
I started this blog with Carissa because I wanted to share our journey of having children and the knowledge I learn along the way. This DIY item seems like the perfect thing to share. So here it is, the design of our new PVC Hand Rail for Hypervibe. I hope it is helpful to you too!
