Supine Stander

The ability to stand changes how people experience the world

Stand at eye level with your peers

In our supine standing frames clients can stand at eye level with their peers. Adjustable supports on the standing aid allow for functional alignment with the client’s arms free for activities.

Positioning someone with disabilities in a standing position is the first step to facilitating bone and muscle development and maintaining range of motion in addition to encouraging better functioning of the body’s internal systems.

Our bodies were made to be upright. Standing delivers enormous health benefits that everyone should enjoy. At Rifton we like to speak of the six B’s that benefit from standing: bones, breathing, blood, bowel, bladder and brains.

Optional components are available to tailor the standing frame to your client’s positioning needs. Supine standing provides many therapeutic benefits including head support with partial weight-bearing.


Rifton Supine Standers enable vertical standing for adults and children with physical disabilities. Using a vertical stander can strengthen core muscles and improve weight-bearing, weight-shifting and trunk control. Additionally, they promote upright social interactions at the same eye-level as a client’s peers. Use the slides below to learn more about Rifton standing frame features.
