APN is proud to announce the Biodex Sit2Stand™ Trainer
Sitting position to a Standing position is the most critical motion for functioning independently on a day to day basis.
Being able to go from a seated position to a standing position and visa-versa, is a movement that everyone needs to perform for normal activity on a daily basis. Quality of life depends on this motion as does functional independence. This motion requires lower extremity joint torque and ROM. Even more than walking or stair climbing.
At APN therapy, our therapists use the Biodex Sit2Stand™ Trainer through these seating and standing motions safely and easily. These motions, when repeated build both upper body and lower body muscles and increase strength, endurance, flexibility with the goal being functional independence for the patient. The benefits are many fold. For instance, by using the Sit2Stand™, the patient reduces the need for the upper extremities to compensate for lower extremity weakness, which can lead to upper extremity pain. This will help reduce shoulder problems relating to sitting and standing as well.
