Nate has gained great freedom by using the Rifton Dynamic stander for his upright mobility. Previously wheelchair dependent, he now moves freely in the classroom and hallway. His arms easily propel the stander, allowing him to interact with his peers during classroom activities — including his adaptive PE class.

Eye to eye, smile to smile – engaging with peers is so much more rewarding for individuals with special needs when they can interact in an upright and mobile position. And the Rifton Dynamic Stander, a mobile prone stander, makes it easy – even for those with no weight-bearing ability.
The Rifton Dynamic Stander provides new independence and standing mobility for wheelchair- bound children and adolescents. More importantly, this mobile stander helps strengthen critical motor skills so a child can progress toward independent standing.
With the Rifton Dynamic Stander’s removable large wheels in place, clients can self-propel in a standing position – free to explore their surroundings alongside (and often ahead of!) their playmates.
Remove its large wheels, and the Rifton mobile prone stander easily rolls right up to a table or a counter enabling participation in crafts and other stationary activities.
The Dynamic Stander is available in three colors: blue, raspberry and lime. Its padded body support is covered with health-care grade vinyl.
