The Standing Frame is an important part of many therapy regimes. The act of standing helps to stretch muscles and tendons to prevent contractures, improves circulation, extends the abdominal cavity for respiration and digestive processes to function easily and helps in the evacuation of the upper urethal tract. It allows safe, stable, and independent standing. Although there are several configurations of the Standing Frame the basic principle behind their use is the same. By blocking the knees against the knee pads on the Standing Frame, positioning the feet on the footplate and lifting the pelvis, the user can be safely raised from a sitting position into the standing position in stages depending on the user ability. The Standing Frame is a free-standing device and can be used on any flat, solid ground without additional attachment to a wall.
