Description
 
Sit to Stand… the most fundamental motion for functional independence.
The ability to stand from a seated position is an important movement performed many times throughout the day. It is one of the most fundamental motions required for a greater quality of life and functional independence. It is also one of the most biomechanically demanding movements, requiring more lower extremity joint torque and ROM than walking or stair climbing.

The Biodex Sit2Stand™ Trainer helps the therapist guide patients through the seated to standing motions, in a safe environment. By repeating the motions, a patient builds both lower- and upper-body muscular strength and endurance, improves flexibility and ultimately maintains/gains independence.

In addition to lower extremity strengthening, the Sit2Stand™ contributes to upper extremity strength gain. Upper extremities often compensate for lower extremity weakness, which can lead to upper extremity pain. There is a correlation between increased leg strength and reduction in shoulder problems relating to the sit-to-stand motion.

By varying seat height and foot position, the patient will learn the effects of body position and joint angle to control center of mass and the role of momentum in rising.

The large, comfortable contoured seat with pivoting backrest articulates naturally to correspond with pelvic tilt during sit-to-stand motion. Adjustable start and end seat position accommodates varying amounts of hip flexion and orthopedic conditions.
