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.

Forms the hip joint in early development

Best site design for adaptive equipment I have ever seen. Having a child with special needs is hard enough, by having your site easy to navigate you make what could be a challenge instead an act of ease.Elise
