The Importance of Standing

Standing is one of the "human positions" according to Wikipedia. For some individuals with special needs, standing is not possible without the use of adaptive equipment called Standers. There are many physiological, social, and emotional benefits to the standing position. OttoBock, in partnership with Leckey has developed a great visual and descriptive tool to outline some of the most important benefits.
