The ALTITUDEstanding frame is a freestanding vertical stander, designed to enable the user to be safely raised from sitting to standing and then positively supported during their standing program. It is designed to lift users from sitting to standing and can be used in standing therapy regimes.
The ALTITUDE can be used by people with a wide range of conditions; adults with spinal and head injuries, Multiple Sclerosis, and Motor Neurone Disease all have the potential to stand using this piece of equipment.
The electric lifting mechanism features a motorized belt adjustment system that is capable of lifting up to 120kg (19 stone), and allows those with moderate trunk control to raise themselves from sitting to standing and those with limited trunk control to be guided into standing with attendant assistance.

Additional supports are available which can be used to control complex conditions by stabilizing the pelvis and spine to give a good mid-line position. The hip bar and pads are the foundation for upper body control as they are used to stabilize and stop rotation in the pelvis. The thoracic support and laterals are added to the hip bar and pads for greater control of the trunk.
If a user has a tendency to lean back or gains better independent head control from having support behind them, the thoracic support can be attached to the hip bar. If the user has a tendency to lean to one side, the lateral supports will help them maintain a central position.
