Prone, Upright and Supine Stander for Children, Teens & Adults
Posture & Function
Research has shown that standing can improve bone density, motor abilities and reduce spasticity, tone and spasms.
Pelvic stability is as important in standing as in sitting, because the trunk, head, and legs have to be in alignment in order for standing to be comfortable and therapeutically effective.
The pelvis is held in a secure and stable position by the fully adjustable derotation pelvic support belt, pads, or pelvic band regardless of whether in an upright, prone or supine posture. The Horizon derotation belt has been redesigned like the Mygo Stander belt, to give more proprioception and structure under the client's bottom.
Supine standing provides an alternative posture for children who need maximum support to hold themselves upright against gravity.
Prone standing is clinically recommended for stretching tight muscles and developing head control.
Trunk and Head Alignment
As in sitting, trunk and head support contributes to the stability of the pelvis in standing, enhancing arm and hand function, concentration and social interaction.
The adjustable chest support and flexible laterals provide trunk support whether prone, supine or upright.
Where minimal head support is needed, for example in an upright posture, the flat headrest cushion acts as a posterior prompt to keep the head balanced over the trunk.
Where additional support is needed to keep the head in midline, lateral supports can be added to the headrest.
Leg and Foot Positioning
Active weight bearing contributes to the development of the hip joint. It is essential that legs and feet are appropriately positioned to achieve maximum therapeutic benefit.
With the ability to accommodate knees in various degrees of flexion, the knee supports ensure they are comfortable and stable whether prone or supine.
Where legs are unequal lengths due to muscle shortening or surgery, different foot heights and positions can be easily supported with our range of independently adjustable footplates.
The Horizon Stander is designed to promote independence and function in a number of ways.
Whether prone or supine, the tray with optional grab rail can be used to facilitate table top activities whilst in the standing position.
The angle adjustment on the tray means that the person can use it to play, regardless of the angle of the standing frame.
Transfers into the Horizon stander are made easier for carers because it can adjust to the fully horizontal position.
