A Multitude of Standing Positions
The EasyStand Bantam is a true multi-positioning device. From task performance seating, to anterior tilt standing, the Bantam makes a great classroom chair. Children who are difficult to transfer due to high tone can utilize the Bantam with the supine option to do a flat-to-load transfer. Therapists appreciate how the Bantam can be used as transition stander for kids who need a supine stander now, but eventually want to progress to upright standing, utilizing the sit-to-stand transition.

- The Bantam combines the ease of a sit-to-stand stander with the option of supine positioning.
- The Bantams optional Shadow Tray supports the child from sitting to standing.
- The Bantam offers an independent transition to standing with the optional hand-operated hydraulic pump.
- The Bantam is available with standard planar seating, optional comfy seating, or a combination of both.

Bantam Shadow Tray for Schools
The ability to use the Bantam Shadow Tray as both a stander and a desk make it a perfect choice in a school setting. As the child moves into a standing position, the tray shadows them, providing tray access in all positions from sitting to standing. Children who have contractures and stand partially upright have complete access to the tray, while remaining fully supported.
Why Stand Kids with Disabilities?
There are a number of excellent research studies documenting the medical benefits of standing programs for a childs long-term health. Besides the medical benefits, children have also experienced enhanced social development & peer interaction while standing. Therapists and teachers have noticed increased alertness, vocalization and responsiveness. Parents have observed how activities of daily living have increased, and kids like how standing stimulates play!
