Exercising with Cerebral palsy has always been a challenge.

Now, there is a simple way for those with cerebral palsy to stand up and exercise.

EasyStand Frames

The EasyStand line of standing frames for CP child provide a very basic but necessary function for those with cerebral palsy: the ability to go from sitting to standing in a variety of positions.

From those positions and assisted movement, the benefits of exercise are gained.

Huge benefits like improved bone density and better joint stability are seen in EasyStand use.

Research done on EasyStand users back this claim up:

A clinical study compiled results from over 30 different studies done on the benefits of standing for those with cerebral palsy. The results came back that bone density was positively affected along with increased hip stability, and range of motion in the feet, ankles, and knees.

EasyStand frames allow those affected by cerebral palsy (along with those with spinal cord and nerve injuries) to sit in the frame and from the sitting position stand up. Once they are up, they are able to move from all different angles to stimulate their bodies.

EasyStand standing frames for cp child

There isn’t only one EasyStand. In fact, there’s a whole line-up of different standers to choose from.

Let’s go over the line-up briefly:

Zing and Bantam

These two are put together because of their focus on very young children and older children.

The Zing accommodates young children with a change between the supine, prone, and vertical positions in a fluid motion.

The Bantam allows for supine, sitting, and standing positions. The addition of the supine position allows for further assistance for children with extra difficulty standing up.


The basic but amazing standing frame for adults.

The most versatile sit to standing frame on the market. The user can stop at any angle between sitting and standing to allow for more resistance and exercise.


An advanced stander, this one allows the user the same freedom of movement as the Evolv stander with some cool additional features. The Glider allows movement that is similar to an elliptical machine, so the lower body and upper body are put through a much more strenuous and rewarding workout.


An innovative stander that has a strap-in system. This system allows the user to stand without putting excessive pressure on the knees. Also, standing is possible directly from bed or a wheelchair without having to transfer. Choosing a standing frame like a Easystand is a tough choice. The information here is to help you decide on which frame is best for you and your situation.
