About Sit to Stand Standers
A sit to stand stander offers the ability for a child or adult to experience a more natural transition into a standing position and eye-to-eye interaction with their peers. The stander can be progressed from a seated position to standing with the flexibility to stop at any point along the way. This is achieved either with soft sling support or a more rigid seat support. These styles offer the most opportunities for a stander to participate in transfers, positioning, and elevation of the stander.
Some sit to stand models can be outfitted with a mobile kit that allows you to move a user with good upper body strength on the stander around a room with hard floors such as a classroom, gym, kitchen, etc. Standers can be fitted with hip and trunk pads, straps, and head rests to provide appropriate support for children with high and low tone with diagnoses such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Spina Bifida, and others where significant support is needed. Sit to Stand Standers are most frequently used by children who have at least fair trunk control and are able to sit with minimal support. These children also have good head control and are able to keep their head up without support for long periods of time. The seated ‘resting’ position of Sit to Stand Standers also make them an ideal.
