EasyStand 5000 Standing Frame
The EasyStand 5000 Standing Frame was discontinued by the manufacturer, Altimate Medical, in March of 2009. The 5000 was redesigned and launched as the EasyStand Evolv with numerous improvements making all the benefits of standing that much smoother and easier. Some of the changes to the frame are as follows:
1.) Better casters and wheels: The Evolv has two 5” soft roll, swivel, locking back casters and two soft front wheels for easier transport. The EasyStand 5000 has four 4” swivel, hard casters.
2.) More than just standing: When you buy the Easystand Evolv, you are getting more than just a stander. Options like the Active Standing Glider, Hand Cycle Attachment, Self-propelled Mobile, and Shadow Tray can be added at any time.
3.) Growth: The EasyStand Evolv has an inexpensive growth kit for converting the Evolv Youth into the Evolv Adult. The EasyStand 500 does not have a growth kit.
4.) Appropriate for severely involved: Unlike the EasyStand 500, the Evolv offers options like Pow’r Up Lift and Shadow Tray for people with more limitations.
5.) Options: The EasyStand Evolv has over fifty options available to meet the needs of the people who want to stand. The EasyStand 5000 has less than 30 options available.
6.) Lifting mechanism: The Evolv has an open center frame that allows for a person’s wheelchair to get closer to the stander for independent transfers. It also has elevated rear legs for the use of a patient lift when needed. The EasyStand 5000 has a square frame that limits access with a lift.
7.) Even more transfer options: Available since 2009, the Evolv has a Swing Away Front that totally opens up the front access for assisted transfers. A wide Transfer Seat option is also available.
8.) Minimal Shear: The key objective in designing the Evolv was to minimize the risk of shear. The pivot points on the Evolv are positioned near the user’s actual body pivot points, reducing the possibility of shear, and the movement of support options during the transition to standing. The EasyStand 5000 has the correct pivot point in the seat, but not the back, causing the need for support options to be re-adjusted when going to a standing position.
The EasyStand Evolv has taken all the great features and benefits of the EasyStand 5000 and only made it better!
