The EasyStand Bantam™ is a new type of stander for kids! It is the only standing frame to combine sit-to-stand transition with the added function of a supine stander. By alternating a variety of positions, your child can tolerate standing for a longer period of time. Plus, when it is safer and easier for a caregiver to transfer and stand a child, the child will stand more often, increasing standing compliance. The image shown at left shows the optional Supine features with tray accessory. For a list of included standard features please see below descriptions. Estimated shipping lead time is 8 - 10 business days.

Why Stand your Child with a Disability?
There are a number of excellent research studies documenting the medical benefits of standing programs for a child's long-term health. Besides the medical benefits, children have also experienced enhanced social development and peer interaction while standing, especially with the self-propelled mobile option. Therapists and teachers notice increased cognition, alertness, vocalization and responsiveness. Parents have observed how activities of daily living have increased, and kids like how standing allows them to play!
Standing technology should only be used under the guidance of a physician with recommendations for standing program protocol and any medical precautions. Standing programs should be monitored by the attending therapist.
The EasyStand Bantam is available with a self-propelled Mobile option. If a child has the strength to propel a manual wheelchair, the Bantam Mobile will allow them to move around while standing and explore their environment.
Whether your child stands at home, school, or therapy, the Bantam Mobile option will provide new opportunities. At school, they can play while standing and participate in activities like shooting baskets in gym or “wheeling” down the hall while interacting at peer-height. At home, they can reach toys on shelves in their bedroom, or get their own snack from the cupboard. Mobile standing can provide enhanced independence and self-esteem, while benefiting from being in the natural standing position.
The Bantam Mobile was created with safety and ease of use in mind. The depth adjustable push rims move out of the way for an easy transfer, and can be re-positioned to match a child's reach, even for use in the sitting position. The drive wheels and high efficiency chain drive maximize propulsion and steering capability while standing. A parent or caregiver can activate the wheel locks for safe transferring or stationary standing.
There are numerous research studies and articles that suggest enhanced benefits of standing when using a mobile/dynamic standing frame.
The Bantam can be equipped with a supportive Shadow Tray. The Shadow Tray provides constant anterior support in any position, as well as an activity surface, making it a perfect choice for the child who needs more trunk and upper body positioning.
For kids, the tray provides a perfect surface for books, switch toys, puzzles and snacks! Doing various functional activities while standing helps make standing more fun, which means your child will want to stand more often. The Shadow Tray is easily removable and also adjusts in depth, height, and angle.
