Medical Benefits of Standing
The human body has evolved for being upright on the legs, so standing regularly comes with a vast number of health benefits that many do not realise. Not only in improving bodily functions, but preventing the furthering of subsequent medical conditions.
Preventing Furthering Conditions
Standing upright regularly significantly develops motor skills, which can prevent many potential conditions, such as joint and muscle contractures in the ankles, knees and hips, as well as osteoporosis, hypercalciuria, pressure ulcers and scoliosis.
Improving Bodily Functions
The improvements to the strength and abilities of many parts of the body are also essential for overall health. With a standing aid, the person using it will feel improvements in the range of motion in the spine, hips, knees and ankles, which can help maintain or regain bone density.
Additionally, standing will strengthen circulation and the cardiovascular system, thus building endurance and helping the respiratory system. Another aspect of the body that will see benefits is renal and bowel function, including drainage of the urinary tract and reduction in urinary calculi.
Emotional Benefits of Standing
It’s an often-unspoken aside, but the emotional and psychological aspect of standing is just as vital to the quality of life as the physical side. Being active and mobile while standing increases the amount of independence the person can have with activities of daily living, in turn nurturing a positive self-image.
When it comes to social development, standing upright allows the person to look their peers in the eye and give and receive hugs easier. These enhanced social interactions develop the user’s social presence and help them become more vocal and responsive.
Children and adolescents still in school can experience more inclusion and will decrease fatigue from inactivity, thus allowing them to learn and develop more effectively.
From enhanced learning opportunities to increased social interaction and independence, these benefits help prevent negative mental states such as depression. Standing aids can be the catalyst for a huge change in the user’s quality of life.
