Has anyone in this group attempted to build a better stander, I will be embarking on this, in hopes on replicating a supine/prone stander out of older stander parts, hope someone might have some insight?

I presume a "stander" is some sort of device to help somebody stand?

An image, or a link to an image, would be helpful, because I am sure somebody here will be able to help you come up with some improvements.

You should try and get in touch with XenonJohn - he built two different self-balancing skateboards, full of all the stuff you're talking about, and if I recall correctly he has medical knowledge.
