New Self-Propelled Mobile Stander Provides Independence
05-22-2007, Morton, MN- Altimate Medical is proud to announce the release of a self-propelled Mobile Option for the EasyStand Evolv Youth and Adult standers. The Evolv with Mobile Option is a great solution for those who want function while enjoying the health benefits of standing. Standing mobility provides users with more independence and opportunity.

The Evolv with the Mobile Option has features that make it easier and safer to use than other mobile standers. For example, the pushrims move forward when the kneepad is flipped up, maximizing transfer room. Wheel locks secure the stander while transferring and provide the user with the option of safe stationary standing.
