Not only do we have walkers but we also have rollators and Standers. Standers are like a stroller that allows the person to stand upright and while they roll around with a caretaker. It can help them to feel more mobile and to experience some of the health benefits associated with standing. It can also be a good way to help prevent pressure sores from sitting or being in the same position too long.
Standers are a great device to help enhance the physical and psychological well-being of the user. For those unable to stand on their own the ability to be in a fully upright, standing position is an enormous benefit. The position can help improve bloodflow and reduce pressure points. This helps to prevent pressure sores or other aches and pains that are associated with sitting or being prone for an extended period of time. It can also give the individual an improved sense of autonomy or an enjoyable change in perspective that is exciting and refreshing.
