The EasyStand Bantam is the only standing frame to combine a sit-to-stand transition with the added function of an supine stander. By alternating positions, a child can tolerate standing for a longer period of time. Also, when it is safer and easier for a caregiver to transfer and stand a child, the child will stand more often, increasing standing compliance. The Bantam fits kids from early intervention through elementary school.

Why Stand your Child with a Disability?
There are a number of excellent research studies documenting the medical benefits of standing programs for a child’s long-term health. Besides the medical benefits, children have also experienced enhanced social development and peer interaction while standing, especially with the self-propelled mobile option. Therapists and teachers notice increased cognition, alertness, vocalization and responsiveness. Parents have observed how activities of daily living have increased, and kids like how standing allows them to play!
