Positioning & Sleeping Equipment



Leckey Sleepform is a positioning system designed to provide a safe, comfortable way of supporting sleeping individuals. Appropriate / symmetrical sleeping position is especially important during the skeletal development stage and prevent development of tightness and contractures. The system reduces the build-up of heat and pressure and prevent abnormal postural reflexes. It also reduces the need for night time re-positioning, thus increasing the likelihood of an undisturbed night’s sleep for users and their family.

Sleepform System was designed based on extensive research into the needs of children during their sleep, using case study design throughout UK an Ireland, lasting up to two years. It emonstrated that the two main issues relating to the children using sleep systems, beyond health and safety, are posture and tolerance. The research also focused on the needs of the family and the children’s carers.

The resulting Leckey Sleepform System is comfortable, supportive, flexible, easy to use and easily transportable.

The main contributing factors to asymmetry are abnormal tone and gravity. Leckey Sleep System provides and ideal opportunity to harness the potentially positive effect of gravity by supporting the user in a symmetric posture when their tone reduces during sleep.

Children spend 42% of their time in a sleeping or lying position. Sleepform has been designed to ensure the comfort of users at night or during rest by inhibiting abnormal postural reflexes and prevent heat and pressure build.
