Stander

Standers and standing aids enhance the quality of life for individuals with physical disabilities by integrating the special needs child into the classroom and specials. Adaptive standers place the user in an upright position, provide stimulation to the bones in the lower extremities, encourage head and trunk control, improve respiratory function and stimulate gastric motility.

Supine standers lean backward, support the posterior (back) of the body and are designed for children who do not have head control.

 

Prone standers lean forward, support the anterior (front) of the body and are designed for children with the necessary head control.

Vertical standers are for users who have fairly good balance and truck control, but still need upright support and alignment.

Dynamic standers provide the greatest mobility possible, promote motor skills and increase independence.
