action that can combine the option
of supine positioning to create infinite
positioning possibilities: 90-90 sitting, fully
vertical standing, full supine lying, and any
point in between. Check out new flat and
curved lateral options now available across
the entire Bantam line of standers! Lateral
supports can provide excellent midline
positioning for children with limited trunk
control. Easystand’s Web site options make
it easy to configure and generate Bantam

Available in six sizes for toddlers through adults; all models fold for storage.

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.
An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2018:
Need a stander for your classroom? Order the Superstand HLT from Prime Engineering with the adjustable depth and height supports. The trunk laterals and hip guides will be in slots that go in/out and up/down by just sliding. Also, upgrade to the metal wheels. This one unit can go prone, supine, upright, abduct, and accommodate almost any postural impairment.
For severe knee and hip contractures (20-90°), add the special system (get a longer bar for hip contractures). There will be no pressure on the patellae, and you can start to try to gain range. One study gained 3° a week! If you need more than 30° of abduction, order a longer bar and the rotational foot plates so you can align the hind foot with the tibia.
For the final touch, order the water-resistant covers. These look great, but also offer an additional level of cleanliness, as you can swap them out and wash them between users.

Innovation in Motion
Mini Standy APP
The Ormesa-designed Mini Standy APP significantly increases the amount of stimulation a child receives while standing in the device. Via an audio system that’s fixed under the platform, the Mini Standy APP’s sound waves vibrate through the structure of the stander to stimulate body and brain. Bright colors make the stander an attractive addition to classrooms and homes. The stander comes in three sizes and a weight capacity of 121 lbs.
