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. Leckey has developed a great visual and descriptive tool to outline some of the most important benefits.

  • Peer Interactions
  • Regulates wake and sleep cycles
  • Helps the digestion process
  • Forms the hip joint in early development

  • Promotes bone density
  • Provides a long-term stretch on leg muscles that get tight with prolonged sitting
  • Opens the chest cavity to help with breathing
