Why Use Special Needs Standers?

According to medical research, certain disabled patients can benefit from being maintained in specific positions for a set period of time. A comprehensive study that analyzed 30 separate studies found the following:

"A positive impact on bone mineral density can be seen with standing programs that are performed 5 days per week for 60 to 90 minutes per day. Additionally, hip stability can be improved with daily standing sessions of 60 minutes, including 30 to 60 degrees of bilateral hip abduction. The range of motion in the hip, knee, and ankle can also be increased through daily standing sessions of 45 to 60 minutes, and spasticity can be reduced with daily standing sessions of 30 to 45 minutes."

    What Are The Key Advantages Of Pediatric Standers?

These benefits include increased circulation, reduced swelling, better bladder function, and increased muscle strength. Standers provide weight-bearing support and encourage the use of arms and hands.

    A study conducted by school-based physical therapists found that the benefits of stander devices are numerous, with pressure relief being rated as the most important factor by a majority of the respondents. More than 50% of those surveyed also emphasized the significant social and educational benefits of using standers.
