Alltrack M3 with Custom Standing
The people who brought you the award-winning
outdoor power wheelchair have
re-invented the Standing module. With
the unsurpassed dual-action suspension
system that includes a six-wheel interactive
suspension and vertical shock absorption,
the Alltrack M3 and its standing module
provide the highest stability, great traction
and optimal user comfort. A programmable
Plug & Play e-bx controller uses iQ actuators
to retain seating settings. Transitioning from
seating to standing is smooth with great positioning
through the full range of movement.
The ROVI Mobility A3 power base can
accommodate Motion Concepts’ full line
of innovative power positioning products
plus Invacare Matrx seating. The power base
features the Active Ride Control Suspension
System; a narrow 25.5" base width and 36.5" base length; a turning radius of 20.5"; 4-pole
EAD motors; 3" ground clearance; a 17.7-mile
range; and a 6.2-mph top speed. Use the
ROVI A3 as the foundation for up to 50° of
CG tilt, 170° of recline, and nearly 12" of seat
elevation via Motion Concepts’ modular
seating systems. And the Multi-Position
Standing Maxx System gets users vertical.
Available exclusively on the ROVI A3 power
wheelchair base, the standUP Maxx system
combines power standing with a full range
of power positioning, all in a modular design
with a compact footprint and tight turning
radius. The Modular Power Standing (MPS)
system is offered in a range of configurations:
Choices include -45° CG Tilt Only with
Synchronized Center Mount Foot Platform;
-45° CG Tilt Only with Belt Drive Center Mount
Articulating Foot Platform (BDC); and -45°

The Bantam line of standers offer sit-to-stand
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
quotes, write a Letter of Medical Necessity,
or request a Bantam demo.
Posture Control Walkers/Gait Trainers
Kaye’s line of posture control walkers/gait trainers enables walking with support at the back/posterior of the body. Accessories and components can provide weight-bearing assistance and specific positioning of the trunk, pelvis, legs, arms and heads as required by the child. These walkers/gait trainers are designed to make walking less energy consuming and to improve alignment and maximize a client’s potential for walking. 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.
