Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution collaboration with Altimate Medical, Incorporated, to offer their EasyStand StrapStand™ for therapeutic active standing to a more comprehensive consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Morton, Minnesota, Altimate Medical has been leading the industry for over twenty years by creating superior sit-to-stand technology for the disabled community. Their diverse variety of standing frames and equipment were designed by a C6-7 quadriplegic and have helped countless children and adults in wheelchairs from all over the world to realize an improved quality of life.
Fulfilling the active standing needs for adults, Altimate Medical’s EasyStand StrapStand™ is perfect for users who prefer to stand directly from their wheelchairs. Accommodating user heights from 5 feet to 6.5 feet and weights up to 350 pounds, this strap-style stander satisfies the many unique needs of wheelchair users, including single users with low-level spinal cord injuries to the diverse requirements of multi-user settings. It lifts the user directly from the wheelchair, bed or other seated surface into a standing position. No transfer is required with the StrapStand™, as the lifting arms gently lift the user up to a standing position, unlike other standers that require pushing the user into the knee pad and then ‘forcing’ the sit-to-stand transition, which causes excessive pressure on the knees.
A multitude of standard and special options abound for this innovative adult stander to perfectly customize it to match every user’s unique requirements. One of its most popular options are the easy-to-operate Swing-Out Legs that a caregiver can infinitely swing in or out and then lock in place, similar to legs on a patient lift. This stander also provides the maximal over-center stretch needed for specific body types to achieve optimum standing posture.
“We are very pleased to introduce more consumers to the feature-rich and easily customizable EasyStand StrapStand™ from Altimate Medical,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Easy to maneuver, all that is required is to position the strap under the buttocks, attach the strap to the lifting arms and then pump the actuator handle to a standing position. Ideally suited for nursing homes, extended care units, group homes, veteran’s hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and hospitals, this unique strap-stander is also perfect for use in the home and workplace. We are proud to offer this and all of the supportive standing equipment from Altimate Medical to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
