To provide easy-use and functional solutions to enhance day to day activities of people with disabilities, Rifton Equipment’s deliver apparatus to offer support and stability to the lower body. One of its mobility gears, the supine stander is designed to deliver effective standing aid to people of various ages.
Standing changes how people see and experience the world. Our Supine Standers allow for greater social interaction and involvement in a wide range of therapeutic or recreational activities. With posterior and lateral support, the Supine Stander provides maximum stability while allowing partial weight-bearing and freedom of movement.
Why use a Supine Stander?
Standing option for medically involved clients: The firm main board of the Supine Stander gives users with significant musculoskeletal weakness secondary to prolonged immobilization the opportunity to be positioned upright. Stability is provided posteriorly, making the Supine Stander a comfortable option for users with a tracheotomy.
- For gradual progression to an upright position: The Supine Stander is effective for assisting individuals who have been bedridden for a long time to a standing position. The precise angle adjustment makes it ideal for people with orthostatic hypotension to lessen the adverse hemodynamic response from a rapid change in position.
- Upright interaction: Users can be at eye-level with their peers, participating in activities and initiating communication.
- To improve head control: The head support on the stander can be flipped down to allow the user opportunities to initiate and maintain head control.
- Easier transfers: The large Supine Stander provides vertical adjustments of the mainboard from 21″to 30″, making transfers to the stander easier from a wheelchair or bed.
