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.

I feel the four keys to customer service are attitude, accuracy, timeliness and ownership. Melissa was outstanding in each area. The replacement part I needed was not significant, but my experience with your company certainly was. Dave
Just to let you know our Son is LOVING his Special Tomato Mobile Floor Kit. He has a wheelchair but we wanted a chair for him to be close to the ground where his brothers can play with him.Michael
