How to Exercise with EasyStand Standing Aids

Many individuals who rely on standing aids may feel prevented from exercising due to limited mobility or lack of knowledge. However, with the right approach and guidance, you can keep fit with the help of your standing frame.

The benefits to physical strength are clear, but being active and doing regular exercise is also known to improve mental health, releasing endorphins which are the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. You’ll also see a reduction in stress and a better-regulated sleeping pattern, which all add up to major improvements in your mental health.

In this blog, we will explore how to get started with a safe and effective exercise routine using EasyStand standing aids so that you have all the information and resources you need to take control of your physical and mental well-being.

EasyStand Glider

With the EasyStand Glider, the opportunities for exercise are world-changing. This standing frame is designed to be a singular device that enables the user to partake in therapeutic exercise for cardiovascular health and builds and restores strength in the legs and arms.

The workout handles are moveable by the user and create a corresponding movement in the legs, making for the ideal standing frame for restoring strength in the body. This facilitates motion in the lower extremities similar to cross-country skiing, providing a therapeutic movement exercise found in no other standing frame. As a result, many users have seen the medical benefits of traditional static weight bearing but with an increased range of motion, increased circulation and cardiovascular conditioning.

The EasyStand Glider has been the catalyst for many medical breakthroughs for users who suffer from spinal cord injuries, stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and more. The standing frame’s workout handles allow for adjusting the resistance so a carer can control how difficult movement should be, meaning carers and physiotherapists can tailor their training program to different strength levels.

When the exercise is over, the EasyStand Glider is equipped with a wide seat, flip-up knee pads and a positioning bar to make transfers and sitting back down much easier.

Cross-Training with the EasyStand Glider

The EasyStand Glider specialises in cross-training exercises and enables the user to be able to stand up into the cross-trainer directly from their seat. Cross-training simulates the motion of walking and strengthens the legs, arms, shoulders, back and core, making it an effective full-body workout that the user can perform all on the EasyStand Glider. Once you’re in position, the adjustable Velcro-strapped pedals hold your feet in place with proper positioning and the handle extensions (available in either T-shape or Glide shape) attach to the actuator handle to make the first few pumps easier and descending more accessible.
