Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with Altimate Medical, Incorporated (AMI), to offer their EasyStand Evolv Glider Youth and Adult Stander to a larger consumer marketplace. Incorporated in 1987 and headquartered in Morton, Minnesota, Altimate Medical first introduced their EasyStand assistive standing devices in 1989. Their EasyStand product lines became so popular and in demand so quickly, that AMI discontinued their other products and placed their sole focus on the continued development and design of their EasyStand equipment. Helping disabled children and adults to experience the numerous physical and health benefits of standing, AMI assists users with a wide range of health issues and disabilities including spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, stroke, neurological disorders and traumatic brain injuries.
Unlike typical passive standers, the ‘active’ standing Evolv Glider allows users to move the handles with their arms which creates a reciprocal movement in the legs. This active standing provides both upper body strengthening along with lower body range of motion, leading to positive health outcomes for the users. A full range concave seat features hinged break-away sections that allow full leg extensions for both legs while standing, and flip-up knee pads for easier transfers. Available in a medium size that accommodates users from 4 feet to 5 feet 6 inches in height, weighing up to 200 pounds, and a large size that accommodates users from 5 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing up to 280 pounds, the EasyStand Glider utilizes innovative adjustable resistance cylinders which are easily accessible to the user while in the standing position that will adjust the resistance in twelve different settings.
Adjustability and customization are the key highlights of this state-of-the-art active stander, making it simple to fit the Glider to individuals of varying heights and abilities for use in hospitals, schools, long-term care facilities, and rehabilitation centers. Quick, easy and tool free adjustability makes this the perfect stander equipment for multi-user environments, with the seat depth, back angle, footplate height, knee pad height and handle height all easily adjustable. “We are very excited to introduce the amazing benefits of the EasyStand Evolv Glider Youth and Adult Stander from Altimate Medical to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Perfect for a wide variety of in-home, therapy or institutional applications, this unique active stander offers an absolute profusion of options and accessories to ensure a customized fit for every individual user.”
