The EasyStand® Bantam pediatric standing frame is now available with a self-propelled “Mobile” option. It gives kids with disabilities more independence to explore their environment, and their bodies reportedly benefit from being in the natural standing position.

Youngsters with enough strength to propel a manual wheelchair should be able to operate the Mobile option. The depth-adjustable pushrims can be positioned in the optimum spot for their reach—even when sitting or partially standing. The pushrims move out of the way for transfers. Angled drive wheels and high-efficiency chain drive maximize propulsion and steering capabilities. According to the company, parents or caregivers can activate the wheel locks for safe transferring or stationary standing.
