Morton, MN (PressExposure) May 18, 2009 -- Altimate Medical designed the new EasyStand Bantam to offer an infinite number of positioning possibilities into one pediatric stander. These position possibilities are especially beneficial for children with flexible or fixed contractures because they can start standing supine with hip/knee flexion or an anterior tilt sitting position, then move to their upright ability.
By combining sit-to-stand and supine standing, the Bantam stander can position a child in six main positions. Standing positions in the Bantam include: upright standing, supine standing, and supine standing with knee/hip flexion. Other positions include 90/90 sitting, anterior tilt sitting, and lying supine. By offering a variety of positions, the Bantam reduces fatigue while maximizing comfort and standing compliance.
For nearly twenty years, Altimate Medical has been providing EasyStandÂ® standing technology that improves the quality of life for kids and adults who use wheelchairs worldwide.
