A stander is a piece of equipment that provides support for you to stand upright. This is helpful for people who don’t have the muscle control to stand unassisted and might otherwise spend a lot of their time seated. Children who use wheelchairs benefit from having access to standers for position changes. Some standers come with trays attached so that you can work or play while upright.
What kinds of standers are there?
A supine stander provides support at the back of the body. You can choose to be fully upright or leaning backward. It provides head support.
A prone stander provides support at the front of the body. You can choose to be fully upright or leaning forwards. It lets you work on active head control.
A sit-to-stand stander gives you a variety of positioning options, from lying on your back to sitting at 90-90 angles, to fully vertical standing. One example is the EasyStand Bantam line.
