As children grow larger, transfers can become a lot more difficult and involved.

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Altimate Medical to offer their EasyStand™ Bantam Medium™ Stander to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace.
Headquartered in Morton, Minnesota, Altimate Medical has been the pioneer of sit-to-stand technology and standing equipment for over 20 years. They lead the industry with their innovation and unsurpassed quality, creating unique standing frames and equipment for children and adults with disabilities and physical challenges. Altimate Medical has become the undisputed expert in developing and manufacturing standing equipment that supports the body from a sitting to standing position, and in 'active standing' for users in wheelchairs.
As the only stander on the market to combine sit-to-stand with supine positioning for larger users, Altimate Medical's new EasyStand™ Bantam Medium™ Stander combines popular features from both their Bantam and Evolv series of standing equipment to more perfectly accommodate the larger young user. Transfers often become more difficult as children grow, which often leads to non-compliance with standing programs and related therapies. The new Bantam now provides easier transfers for any positioning between supine and seated positions for users from 4 feet to 5.6 feet in height, and up to 200 pounds in weight. Its central positioning controller is simple to shift between sit-to-stand and supine modes, with the 'neutral' setting allowing infinite positioning between supine and seated positions, while a manual hydraulic actuator safely and comfortably lifts the user to a standing position.
The Bantam Stander comes with a wide range of standard and special options which include a supportive Shadow Tray, rear-locking casters, knee pads, adjustable foot plates, a no-tray chest pad, lateral supports, hip supports, and a variety of straps and pads to further customize this stander to perfectly fulfill every young user's special needs.
“We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the amazingly easy-to-operate EasyStand™ Bantam Medium™ Stander from Altimate Medical,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “As children grow larger, transfers can become a lot more difficult and involved. The Bantam offers the perfect solution for transferring larger children from a sit-to-stand position, as well as helping to transfer them to and from any position, even supine. Now you can perform lateral seat-to-seat, flat-to-load or supine with hip-knee flexion transfers all with one amazing piece of equipment, reducing anxieties for both the child and the caregiver! We are very proud to offer this, and all of the incredibly helpful and therapeutic standing equipment from Altimate Medical to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
