When a child is limited to a wheelchair during their developmental years, it can cause a number of difficulties (pressure ulcers, poor circulation, altered bladder/bowel function, etc.). Pediatric standers are designed to counteract these issues by providing a secure apparatus that allows the child to assume several extended positions:
Supine - Ideal for children that lack head control, this position provides support for the posterior chain and incremental weight bearing as tolerated
Prone - Ideal for children with better head control, this position is used to strengthen extensors, to promote play, and to encourage use of the upper extremities.
Vertical - Ideal for promoting bone density, this position is also used to facilitate bladder and bowel function, and to introduce weight bearing.
If you’re looking to help the young person in your care avoid conditions that can hamper their development, you’re in the right place.
