Providing physical development and greater social interaction
The physiological benefits of standing are enormous – not to mention the psychological benefits of being able to tackle activities in an upright position, participating at eye level alongside peers.
Prone Standers allow for physical development and greater social interaction – enabling clients to experience the world more fully while building strength for the future. Our Prone Standers provide anterior support and stability while encouraging weight-bearing and use of both hands and arms. Fully adjustable, a Prone Stander can “grow” with clients as their skills develop.
"The Rifton Prone Stander has exceptional growth capability, and adjustments are easy to make by parents or therapists. The adjustable abduction wedge with hip stabilizer positions even heavy youngsters in good hip extension and alignment. I consider this stander one of the best on the market."

Benefits of using the Prone Stander:
- Adjustments are easy to make
- Optional components enable therapists to customize the supports to a client’s needs
- Calibrated angle adjustment positions the client from 0 to 85°
- When vertical, the Prone Stander’s footboard is almost at floor level, making transfers easy
Adjust the height of the main board and footboard separately to achieve the best possible upright postural control for your client.
The 0° to 85° angle adjustment makes it easy to monitor and adjust the rate and amount of weight-bearing the user can manage comfortably. It can also be helpful if you are using the Prone Stander with multiple clients and need to protocol the stander angle necessary for each client.
The Prone Stander kneeboard can be removed for small children.
When the Prone Stander is vertical the footboard is almost at floor level making transfers easy.
The upright stander's curved frame takes up less floor space and allows the caregiver to attend to a client without difficulty. The large (E950) Prone Stander frame is Hoyer® lift accessible.
Double-locking casters prevent roll and swivel during transfers.
The user-friendly crank handle adjusts the Prone Stander board from horizontal to vertical.
