Classic Altitude Stander (HSE contract 9229)


HSE Contract 9229


The ALTITUDE standing 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.

The ALTITUDE Stander is ideal for use in both gymnasiums and special centers. 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. There are two lifting mechanisms available for the ALTITUDE:

The manual lifting mechanism is suitable for lower lesion spinal injuries and paraplegics with good shoulder and arm strength. The manual belt will control lifting as the user rises to standing. If the user should wish to stop during the standing process the belts will lock into position, providing reassuring support. This ensures that the user has maximum confidence in standing at their own pace.

The electric lifting mechanism features a motorised belt adjustment system which is capable of lifting up to 120kg (19 stone), there is an updated motor available capable of lifting 140kg (22 stone). The mechanism will allow 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 stabilising 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 stabilise 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.
