Assuming the vertical position is very important for patients who have been immobilized for long periods of time. The vertical stander allows the patient to be placed in a vertical position in order to adjust the circulatory system to changes in body position.

Assuming the vertical position:

  • strengthens skeletal and anti-gravitational muscles
  • improves function of the respiratory system, enables bronchial drainage, improves lung ventilation
  • prevents demineralization of the skeleton.
