Stand at eye level with your peers
In our supine standing frames clients can stand at eye level with their peers. Adjustable supports on the standing aid allow for functional alignment with the client’s arms free for activities.
Positioning someone with disabilities in a standing position is the first step to facilitating bone and muscle development and maintaining range of motion in addition to encouraging better functioning of the body’s internal systems.
"Superbly adjustable and stable, the Supine Stander is ideal for the classroom. The vertical height adjustment makes transfers easier and provides versatility, adapting to the needs of many different students. And in the stander they’re more alert and active."

Our bodies were made to be upright. Standing delivers enormous health benefits that everyone should enjoy. At Rifton we like to speak of the six B’s that benefit from standing: bones, breathing, blood, bowel, bladder and brains.
Optional components are available to tailor the standing frame to your client’s positioning needs. Supine standing provides many therapeutic benefits including head support with partial weight-bearing.
Rifton Supine Standers enable vertical standing for adults and children with physical disabilities. Using a vertical stander can strengthen core muscles and improve weight-bearing, weight-shifting and trunk control. Additionally, they promote upright social interactions at the same eye-level as a client’s peers.
Fold down the top of the Supine Stander for a user who needs to learn head control.
The laterals slide out of the way to aid transfers. Laterals adjust easily: they slide in, out, up, down and rotate.
The armrests move up and down the frame or tilt at varying angles to encourage upper body control. They fold down when not needed.
Small Supine Stander: Angle adjustment is calibrated from 0° to 85° for accurate positioning.
Large Supine Stander: Angle adjustment is calibrated from 0° to 85°.
The small Supine Stander is 28½" high when horizontal.
The large Supine Stander makes transfers easy. The manual crank raises and lowers the stander from 21" (wheelchair height) to 30" in the horizontal position.
Double-locking casters prevent roll and swivel during transfers.
The sturdy, curved frame gives plenty of foot room to the caregiver and allows close proximity for transfer in and out of a wheelchair, or other equipment.
The footboard adjusts to bring client up to a comfortable height for the caregiver.
