Standing Support With Tray



The EasyStand Evolv with Shadow Tray fully supports and follows the user from sitting to standing, with access to the tray in all positions. Created by Altimate Medical, the stander enables residents to change positions as needed, while using the tray for activities like games, reading, and socializing. The tray attaches under the seat and includes a safety mechanism that prevents shifting. The tray flips up and pivots out of the way for easy transfers. The Evolv's lifting design mimics the body's natural pivot points, maximizing function and minimizing shear. More than 40 options can be added to its modular base.
