A standing wheelchair is assistive technology, similar to a standing frame, that allows a wheelchair user to raise the chair from a seated to a standing position. Boasting one of the most innovative designs, the F5 VS Standing Wheelchair at MMS Medical, offers all the power and functionality of a powerchair plus an innovative new way of standing, allowing you to choose from two positions, Sit-to-stand or Lay-to-stand.
A standing wheelchair or vertical stander provides more functional reach when performing activities in daily life. By offering the option of standing to a wheelchair user, he or she will have additional means of regular pressure relief of pressure areas that are active when sitting. Whether at home or at work, being able to stand as a wheelchair user offers a greater sense of self-confidence, enabling increased participation and independence in everyday activities.
