The EasyStand Evolv Glider is a single piece of equipment which provides full supportive active standing with additional lower body range of motion (ROM) and upper body strengthening. The Glider is completely modular and can be adapted to suit your height and disability needs. The Glide handles are moved backwards and forwards with the users arms (or a caregiver can assist) which creates a reciprocal movement in the legs, similar to a Ski/Cross Trainer. Its many unique features, such as the break away seat allows full leg extension whilst standing and adjustable resistance levels can be changed for different types of training and progression.
We have many of our clients with different disabilities such as Tetraplegia, Paraplegia, Hemiplegia, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular dystrophy, Acquired Brian Injury and Congenital Disorder and they are all reaping the benefits of this advanced stander. The Glider provides an opportunity found in no other standing device that of static weight bearing through the long bones of their legs while safely allowing range of motion in the hips and ankles, increasing range of motion (ROM), upper body strength training, increased circulation and cardiovascular conditioning.
For more information on the benefits of a standing frames, we have a more detailed explanation on the EasyStand landing page.
