Standing skills. Social skills.
Eye to eye, smile to smile – engaging with peers is so much more rewarding for individuals with special needs when they can interact in an upright and mobile position. And the Mobile Stander, a mobile prone stander, makes it easy – even for those with no weight-bearing ability. NOTE: This product was formerly the Dynamic Stander.
The Mobile Stander provides new independence and standing mobility for wheelchair-bound clients. More importantly, this Mobile Stander helps strengthen critical motor skills so a user can progress toward independent standing.
"Nate has gained great freedom by using the Rifton Mobile Stander for his upright mobility. Previously wheelchair dependent, he now moves freely in the classroom and hallway. His arms easily propel the stander, allowing him to interact with his peers during classroom activities — including his adaptive PE class."

Benefits of using a Mobile Stander
Freedom to explore
With the Mobile Stander’s removable large wheels in place, clients can self-propel in a standing position – free to explore their surroundings alongside (and often ahead of!) their playmates.
Freedom to participate
Remove its large wheels, and the Mobile Stander easily rolls right up to a table or a counter enabling participation in crafts and other stationary activities.
Skillbuilding in action
With regular use, the Mobile Stander provides a way for clients to strengthen motor skills and work toward independent standing.
