I PUSH A MANUAL CHAIR NOW. WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER THE HALF-POWER SUPERSTAND?
The half-power Superstand is unique in that it combines a manual stand with power mobility. Standing frequency in the half-power Superstand is quick, easy, and safe via the manual standing component. But the power mobility base allows you to go more places more often. In other words, there’s no shoulder pain from self-propelling, no cortisone shots to ease the shoulder pain, and no shoulder/tendon surgeries. But it does result in tons of good physical therapy from standing up and down on your own. For active wheelchair users, the half-power Superstand provides the best of both worlds (therapy and mobility).
