The Benefits of Standing

There are many well-documented health benefits of standing, including:

  • improved circulation,
  • reduced skin breakdown,
  • improved respiratory capacity,
  • reduced urinary tract infections (UTIs),
  • stronger bones,
  • reduced spasticity,
  • reduced back and neck pain,
  • and stronger muscles, tendons, hamstrings.

But the benefits run deeper than that. There are also quality of life improvements such as:

  • increased independence,
  • increased self-esteem,
  • increased social-interaction,
  • and greater opportunities for employment.

Because it saves them money in the long run, insurance companies are often happy to help fund a standing wheelchair. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about getting a standing wheelchair.
