Like most prone standers, it is recommended for patients with better head control, for strengthening extensors, and to provide a functional position for play and upper extremity use. The TherAdapt Prone Stander was designed by an occupational therapist to provide extensive benefits for disabled children. Three sizes are available for users of different ages.

More About TherAdapt Prone Stander

  • There are several types of standers that are generally used. Supine Standers are considered an introduction to weight bearing and are used by patients who are lacking head control. They provide support on the posterior surface of the user and incremental weight bearing as tolerated. Prone Standers are used when a patient has better head control, for strengthening extensors and as a functional position for play and upper extremity use. Vertical Standers are static and support the patient in an erect position. They are the best for maintaining bone density, assisting with bladder and bowel function and in introducing full weight bearing.
  • The TherAdapt Prone Stander, designed by Cheryl Colangelo, MS, OTR, provides the developing child with appropriate support and weight bearing through the lower extremities. The Prone Stander is available in an Early Intervention, Primary, and Intermediate size.
  • We recommend that the Prone Stander be used by individuals who require anterior support, display emerging head and trunk control, or are beginning to right themselves from a prone position. (Note: The alignment of the weight bearing joints is essential for successful positioning in the Prone Stander.) The unique design of the knee and trunk components permits the user to be at eye level with his peers. This is beneficial for social and academic interaction. It promotes a sense of postural security as well.
