Christa from Buffalo, NY USA submitted this review on December 10th 2010 at 02:24 PM. Christa is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Easy to use- very versatile because you don't have to use the glide mechanism. I also like how you can adjust how far up you stand- this is very important because my first in the stander I became light-headed and dizzy. (very common). The durability and stability is also impressive and don't have to worry about the stander moving out of place.
Weaknesses:It can be difficult to get in independently, however, it becomes easier over time.
Comments:I love my stander and use it daily. Initially I could only tolerate it for 5 minutes(max). I can now stand for upto 3 hours/day without issues. Getting in/out independently is quick & easy now, due to daily practice.

Jeff from Kingston submitted this review on November 3rd 2010 at 10:14 PM. Jeff is an end user who has over five years of experience with the product.
Strengths:No one needs to be with me to get in and out.
Weaknesses:The arm handles don't allow for proper mounting / dismounting without sheering against it.
Comments:I love it...although I wish I got the mobile stand. My fault, not the device.

Patricia from Indian Wells, California submitted this review on January 6th 2007 at 02:52 AM. Patricia is a clinician who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:My daughter intially used this device 6 months after the accident. A hit and run accident left my 18 year old with a traumatic brain injury, 2 months comatose, multiple rib and arm fractures, ataxia, cervical as well as thoracic fractures. She is a quadraplegic that uses this device regularly. I am a Physical therapist as well as her Mom. The gliding feature assists with keeping her range of motion especially in her hips. The exercise seems to keep her bowel functioning well. She was very active before and initially only able to tolerate( cardiovascular and respiratory) the device for up to 3 minutes. She is now up to an hour at a time. She also uses the device to practice some stretches of her arms similar to yoga poses to try and improve her trunk balance. I have had no repair needs or issues. Although large ,it is easy to move as needed on our tile floors.
Weaknesses:It is difficult for the caregiver to transfer from wheelchair to the glider chair. Even though parked parallel, the frame and leg supports become an obstacle. Lot's of bruises on my shins can be attributed to this. The chair slants slightly downward and is slippery as well once the transfer is completed. Initially due to my daughters weakness it took 2 people to get her safely in and out of the glider. It is also difficult to seperate the legs and place legs in the glider, as you must move and seperate the legs between the fixed knee supports.The unit started squeaking about 6 months into use. The dealer brought out a lubricant, but it still squeaks when using the gliding feature.
Comments:I would recommend this product to anyone with a spinal cord injury for the medical benefits including cardiovascular, orthopedic, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and mental health.

Jeff from Kingston, NY submitted this review on October 30th 2006 at 07:16 PM. Jeff is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:This thing is the Cadillac of standing frames. Well built, easy to adjust and it actually looks nice.
Weaknesses:Since it's the only standing frame I've owned, I really don't have anything to compare it to, other than the models used in Rehab.
Comments:This unit is pretty close to the elliptical gliders that I used to use at the gym.

Holly from Grovedale Alberta submitted this review on August 30th 2006 at 06:58 PM. Holly is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:by far the best form of exercise I have found, I am a T6 complete para, 5 ft tall and about 105 lbs.
Weaknesses:I suppose the adjustments are difficult but I have never had to adjust anything since it was set up.
Comments:I've had my glider for about 4 years now and my ankles and legs have great flexibility, I also get a good full body workout with cardio benefits. I have found that it makes a difference what I wear for footwear while working out, good support with short heels seems to be the best for me. I would highly recommend this device for anyone who is seriously motivated to maintain the best possible health.

Brad from Bedminster, NJ, USA submitted this review on September 3rd 2005 at 12:17 PM. Brad is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Closest thing a para or quad will get to a Nordic Trak. Ease of use, smooth operation, wide range adjustability. Allows me to stretch my calves/gastrocks/plantar facia better than just standing alone. With the gas struts disconnected it makes a great glider and is fun to work with.
Weaknesses:Hard to adjust height from my wheelchair because the seat/back support is heavy. With the gas struts connected -- even when set to the lowest resistance -- make the action uneven and very hard on the wrists. To change direction and begin to overcome the resistance of the strut requires far too much input and the adjustments are too far apart. I would love it if htere was a way to bridge the gap between no resistance and level one one the struts. Lastly, changing from the glider arms and chest support to the desk platform requires the complete removal of the top half of the arms and the chest support assembly which includes the side supports and exercise computer.
Comments:Overall I still think that this was a great purchase because of what it does for my ankles and gastrocks. I'm 6'3", 195 lbs. and have a hard time doing manual seated stretches so this machine was a God-send. It's hard to get an aerobic level of workout on this, but you can burn a few calories by vigorously "skiing" as you would on a Nordic Trak.
