Physical Benefits of the #1 Standing Wheelchair


One of the most important  functions of wheelchairs that help you stand up, is the ability to help blood circulate around the body. When you sit or in one place for too long, blood begins to pool and stagnate, reducing circulation to other parts of the body that need it. 

 Urinary Health

Urinary Tract Infections are common among people who are in wheelchairs. However, studies have shown that using a standing device or standing wheelchair can greatly decrease urinary tract infections.


Staying in one position, such as sitting, can cause muscle spasticity. Changing posture helps relax the muscles and reduce spasticity.

 Bowel Function

Poor bowel function is a common complaint among wheel chair users. However, according to numerous studies, standing exercises can greatly improve bowel function. Even when using a standing wheelchair these results are the same.

 Pressure Sores

Pressure sores occur from constant pressure on one area of the body. Being able to stand up in a wheelchair helps distribute your weight and improve healing of bed sores.


Sitting for long periods of time may cause the joints and muscles to stiffen. Standing allows the muscles to get stretched and exercised, decreasing the amount of stiffness you experience in joints and muscles.

 Bone Density

Some evidence shows that standing wheelchairs may increase bone density. This is because standing puts more weight on your bones than sitting.

Psychological Benefits of a Standing Wheelchair


Having a Standing Wheelchair  is the foundation of reclaiming independence. A few examples include being able to reach cupboards, change light-bulbs, and looking into a mirror at a regular level.

 Increased Cognition

Better circulation often means better cognition. Wheelchairs that help you stand up may help with certain cognitive tasks such as memory and focus.


Sitting or lying down for too long is a known cause for fatigue. Muscles may atrophy and quickly tire. Standing up helps exercises these muscles and reduce fatigue.


Depression is often caused by feeling a lack of control over certain situations. So it is no wonder why people confined to a wheelchair may suffer from depression. However, gaining the ability to stand, even with assistance, helps reclaim a certain amount of control and helps reduce depression.

 Well Being

Well being is dramatically increased by using a standing wheelchair. You can be on “the same level” when talking or communicating as others. You can also make eye contact, pose for photographs, hug standing up and much more. One of the most important standing wheelchair benefits.
