In addition to the prone angle adjustment, the stander covers a large growth range and has adjustable chest, hip and knee supports, to ensure that it meets a large range of clinical needs.
Posture & Function
Research has shown that standing can improve bone density, motor abilities and reduce spasticity, tone and spasms.
- The Pronestander supports children in five secure prone positions.
- The pelvis can be de-rotated using the pelvic pad and belt, providing alignment over the base of support.
- Feet can be appropriately supported using the footplates or adjustable sandals, depending on the level of foot stability required.

Pelvic stability is as important in standing as in sitting, because the trunk, head, and legs have to be in alignment in order for standing to be comfortable and therapeutically effective.
The pelvis is held in a secure and stable position by the fully adjustable pelvic pad and belt.
The pelvic pad and belt work together to de-rotate the pelvis, giving the best base of support over which to stabilise the trunk and head.
The pelvic pad and belt work together to keep the pelvis in a midline position relative to left and right, to ensure weight is distributed as evenly as possible.
