Bantam

From Altimate Medical, the makers of world class standers, comes a new type of stander for kids- the EasyStand Bantam! The EasyStand Bantam combines the convenience of a sit-to-stand stander with the added function of a supine stander. This combination allows the child to be positioned in an infinite number of positions. The EasyStand Bantam is available in two sizes to fit kids from early intervention through elementary school (a growth kit is available to convert the extra small to a small). Bantam Motion

A Multitude of Standing Positions
The EasyStand Bantam offers infinite positioning possibilities. Since changing positions in the Bantam is safe, easy, and quick, the child can get a whole new perspective without changing equipment. By alternating a variety of standing positions, the child can tolerate standing for a longer period of time. Plus, when it is easier for the caregivers to stand the child, and the child is more comfortable, they will stand more often.

Imagine the positioning possibilities in the Bantam:

  • Children who are difficult to transfer due to high tone can utilize the Bantam with the supine option to do a flat-to-load transfer with or without hip and knee flexion. The sit-to-stand and supine combination accommodates for contractures in a way that no other stander can.
  • At the dinner table, the Bantam can be positioned at a height that allows the child to facilitate a more natural upright feeding position and socialize with the rest of the family.
  • After standing upright for a period of time, the child can rest in a seated, tilted or supine position, then return to upright standing when their energy increases.
  • In the classroom, the Bantam can be used in an anterior tilt sitting position for high task performance. The tray can be removed so the child can be positioned for perfect access to tables or activities in the classroom.
