Morton, MN (PressExposure) March 05, 2008 -- Altimate Medicalâs new Full Range Seat for the EasyStand Evolv Glider has hinged breakaway sections for each leg that provide approximately thirty degrees greater range of motion, thus allowing full leg extension while gliding. This feature enhances the many health benefits of active standing.
Active standing technology provides lower body range of motion and upper body strengthening while standing. Users move the glide handles with their arms creating a reciprocal movement in their legs. A number of medical professionals noticed while accessing their clients using the Glider that they could benefit from greater range, the Full Range Seat can help them achieve this. As of January 15th the Full Range Seat comes standard on all Evolv Youth and Adult Gliders and can retro-fit to Gliders 2007 and newer.
For nearly twenty years, Altimate Medical has been making EasyStand standing technology that improves the quality of life for kids and adults who use wheelchairs worldwide. To learn more about the EasyStand products visit http://www.easystand.com or contact Altimate Medical at 800-342-8968.
