EasyStand Bantam Medium
As children grow, transfers can become more difficult, and as a result, compliance with a standing program often suffers. The Bantam Medium, from EasyStand, Morton, Minn, is built to allow transfers to a seated or supine position, or any position in-between. The Bantam’s central positioning controller shifts between sit to stand and supine modes. The “Neutral” setting is designed to allow infinite positioning between seated and supine, while a manual hydraulic actuator lifts the child to a standing position. Fits individuals from 4 feet to 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and up to 200 pounds.
