Saginaw, MI (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
The Standing Company announced today that they will be featured in an upcoming episode of Health Heroes, airing later this year via Discovery Channel.
In this episode of Health Heroes, viewers will learn about The Standing Company's SuperStand wheelchair. This very unique piece of equipment allows for a person who would otherwise be seated in a traditional wheelchair to stand up and stretch out with ease and safety, at any place, any time. The SuperStand is engineered to be easy, fun, and healthy to use. Audiences will be amazed by the SuperStand's medical advantages. The chair allows for stretching of hamstrings and heel cords, it helps control spasticity, promotes better urinary drainage, reduces skin breakdown, and exercises the cardiovascular system.
“The Superstand Standing Wheelchair is ideal for people with paraplegia, quadriplegia, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystropy, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida and for survivors of a traumatic brain injury,” said David J. Maczik, President/Founder of The Standing Company. Maczik adds, “A program of repeated passive standing in the Superstand offers the user both physiological and psychological benefits --- including self-confidence and self-esteem. It also affords working people --- and people looking to work (i.e. career planning for college/vocational students) --- additional opportunities for employment. We are honored to be partners with the Health Heroes series --- as their goals, aspirations, and mission closely mirror the values shared by all of us at The Standing Company.”
“The Standing Company is helping give people their independence back," said Michele Nehls, producer for the Health Heroes series. “The Standing Company is all about making it easy as possible to achieve greater health and well-being, and we are so pleased to be able to educate our audience on this remarkable product."
