Providing physical development and greater social interaction

The physiological benefits of standing are enormous - not to mention the psychological benefits of being able to tackle activities in an upright position, participating at eye level alongside peers.

Prone Standers allow for physical development and greater social interaction - enabling clients to experience the world more fully while building strength for the future. This Prone Stander provides anterior support and stability while encouraging weight-bearing and use of both hands and arms. Fully adjustable, Prone Standers can "grow" with clients as their skills develop.

The Benefits:

  • Therapeutic benefits of standing:
  • Provide hip alignment through comfortable postural supports
  • Provide stretch to reduce risk of lower extremity contractures
  • Build head control
  • Strengthen lower-body muscles
  • Position the user at eye-level to peers for social interaction

Benefits of using the Prone Stander:

  • Adjustments are easy to make
  • Optional accessories enable therapists to customize the supports to a client's needs
  • Calibrated angle adjustment positions the client from 0 to 85°
  • When vertical, the Prone Stander's footboard is almost at floor level, making transfers easy

Why use a Prone Stander?

  • For upright social interaction: The Prone Stander offers users the opportunityto be at eye-level with their peers and participate in class activities while still being supported adequately at the trunk.
  • For improving head and trunk control: The prone tilt of the main board engages the pull of gravity on the head and upper trunk cueing the use of the neck and trunk extensor muscles in maintaining an upright head position. The main board can also be lowered to increase postural challenge to the upper trunk. 
  • To minimize extensor tone: The prone tilt of the main board engages the pull of gravity to counteract extensor tone and thrust.
  • For pressure relief: Great temporary alternative to wheelchair positioning relieving pressure on the ischial tuberosities and other areas susceptible to skin breakdown. 
  • For gradual increase in weight-bearing: The zero to 85° angle adjustment makes it easy to monitor and adjust the rate and amount of weight-bearing the user can manage comfortably.
  • For better hip extension and alignment: Hip range of motion and integrity can be maintained in the prone position with the firm anterior support and the abductor options.
