Serving the Seating & Wheeled Mobility Professional
This new foldable stander boasts a small
footprint and lightweight portability.
Designed for children aged 0-3 years, the
Zing Portable has a weight capacity of 36
lbs. The stander itself weighs just 20 lbs., and
the carrying handle on the Zing Portable is
designed to balance the weight for an easier
lift. The multi-position stander offers supine-to-vertical and prone-to-vertical configurations,
with independent leg abduction (up to
15°, or 30° bilaterally). Tool-free adjustment
makes the Zing Portable easy to work with,
and its tripod design enables the stander to
comfortably fit into more environments.
This new shadow tray for the Evolv line is
adjustable in height and depth. It covers
the entire usable height and depth range
of the six previous shadow tray options it is
replacing. Designed to comfortably support
the user, the tray provides constant anterior
support throughout the sit-to-stand transition
to “shadow” the user in any position
between sitting or standing. The tray retains
the popular flip-up operation that quickly
moves it out of the way and provides a wide-open
base for transfers. The tray is available
in a black-molded or a clear acrylic style.
For an active standing program, check out the EasyStand Glider’s state-of-the-art features. The user’s arms move the glide handles, and that motion is reciprocated in the legs, resulting in a motion similar to cross-country skiing. Active standing combines increased lower-extremity range of motion and upper-body strengthening while bearing weight. The EasyStand Glider is available in two sizes (medium and large) and fits users from 4' tall to 6'2" tall and weighing up to 280 lbs.
The Zing MPS and the MPS TT (for Title Table style, pictured) are the only multi-position standers that pivot in two directions to enable the unit to go from flat-to-load supine to 20° prone in one motion. This eliminates the need to transfer the user in and out, or to flip pads, footplates and trays. The option of up to 30° of independent, anatomically correct leg abduction further sets it apart from other “multi-position” children up to 60" tall and weighing up to 154 lbs. The Zing family of standers now has its own Web site.
