Standers Answered

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.

yes such as in leckey, r82, rifton, altimate medical

Ah, like this screenshot...


already completed stander, I used a old theradapt plywood stander(prone) and took a 3" diameter carpet roll(hard cardboard) wrapped it in some vinyl fabric, washable mounted it to the slots and wha-la a bolster stander!

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.
