What are the health benefits of a Vertical Standing Power Wheelchair?

There are a lot of health benefits that come with using a vertical standing power wheelchair. Below are a few health benefits of using a Vertical Standing Electric Wheelchair.

Maintaining Strong and Healthy Bones

Bone density is important to keep in mind for any wheelchair bound individual. By using the standing function this allows tension to be put on your bones in your legs which maintains strong and healthy bone density.

Healthy Muscles

Much like our bones, our muscles also need a small amount of tension in order to stay healthy. A vertical standing electric wheelchair will help the user maintain good posture which will help prevent muscle soreness in the future. It will also assist with slowing down the development of muscle contractions and or spasms. When seated for extended periods of time, quite often, especially those who have MS, ALS, Parkinsons, or spinal cord injuries / paraplegia, it is common to experience muscle spasms. Often times, the recommended treatment is to frequently see a physical therapist in order to lengthen the muscles. By not only seeing a therapist to lengthen ones muscles, but coupled with utilizing a vertical standing electric wheelchair, such as the Permobil C-500 VS, you can reduce the frequency and intensity of these contractions and or spasms.

Promotes Good Blood Circulation

Using a vertical standing power wheelchair gives your heart and lungs the chance to get a little bit of exercise, which is good for overall health and blood circulation. Giving your heart and lungs the chance to exercise reduces your risk of heart disease. Humans were designed to stand, being in a seated position for extended periods of time can affect proper blood flow through out the body.
