For individuals who are bound to a wheelchair permanently, a standing frame should be an important part of their standard medical routine. Wheelchairs are a great tool for individuals with limited mobility who are unable to walk or move by themselves, but sitting in a chair all day every day can have detrimental health effects. These negative and potentially dangerous health consequences can include but are not limited to reduced bowel function, decreased circulation, breathing difficulty, bladder infections, loss of bone density, and more. Regular access to and use of a standing frame can help wheelchair-bound individuals prevent these health complications that can arise from constantly sitting in a wheelchair. Standing frames can prevent and reverse the above health consequences, as well as improve motor skills, relieve pain, and increase cognitive function. A top-notch standing frame currently on the market that carries these medical benefits is the Evolv standing frame by EasyStand.
Safety is the number-one priority for the Evolv standing frame. The frame is designed to help wheelchair users improve their health condition, not worsen it with new pain or injury. Therefore, in order to ensure that all users remain safe at all times, the Evolv frame can be operated easily and quickly. The transition to standing for users is very supportive, and the operation process for the frame involves only three steps: adjustment, transferring, and pumping up to get users to a normal standing position.
EasyStand’s Evolve standing frame is extremely customizable in order to help individuals feel more comfortable while using the frame. It is available in several different sizes to accommodate users of varying heights and weights. Furthermore, the Evolv frame is available in more than sixty different configurations with different options for sizes, frame styles, lift mechanisms, seating, trays, supports, footplates, kneepads, and more. The customizability of the Evolv standing frame ensures a comfortable and safe experience for all users in order to encourage wheelchair-bound individuals to use their standing frame as often as possible without fearing that they will encounter pain or injury.
Many wheelchair-bound individuals are forced to rely on friends, family members, or caretakers when they want to transfer in or out of their wheelchair. However, the Evolv standing frame makes independent transfer easy and safe so that users can take advantage of the frame even if there is no one around to help them. The frame is available with several different options to make independent transfer easier, including a special push-button to allow users to operate the frame themselves, a large transfer seat, a removable back, and a swing-away front.
As you can see, there are tons of great features provided by Easystand with their Evolve sit to stand model to allow wheelchair users to get into that great upright advantage to get great weight bearing and decrease the opportunities of experiencing secondary positioning issues due to sitting all day. Easystand provides a wide variety of standing products that address the smallest child all the way up to adults of all sizes and shapes.
