The Rifton Mobile Stander enables clients with conditions such as Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury who are unable to stand and walk independently to become mobile while safely supported in an upright position. Engaging with peers is so much more rewarding for individuals with special needs when they can interact in an upright and mobile position.
The Rifton Mobile Stander makes interacting with peers at a rewarding eye level an easy natural occurrence – even for those with no weight-bearing ability. More importantly, this mobile stander helps strengthen critical motor skills so a child can progress toward independent standing.
The Rifton Mobile Stander is versatile and easy to manoeuvre. With removable large wheels, clients can self-propel in a standing position – free to explore their surroundings alongside their family and playmates. Remove its large wheels, and this mobile prone stander easily rolls right up to a table or a counter enabling participation in crafts and other stationary activities.
