The challenge

Portable standing frameThe physiotherapy department at a local hospital were unable to adapt their standing frame to suit the needs of this young man. He also required a standing frame for use at home but commercially supplied ones are too large and are unsuitable for him. He could not be held securely in a vertical position.

The functional aspect of this frame was made to the specifications determined by the physiotherapist.

Unlike the hospital standing frame, it holds him securely, folds flat, is lightweight for carrying and can be used anywhere he goes (including the hospital).
