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. Our Prone Standers provide anterior support and stability while encouraging weight-bearing and use of both hands and arms. Fully adjustable, a Prone Stander can "grow" with clients as their skills develop.
