Kimberly needs a Stander

My name is Kimberly. I have multiple sclerosis. I am looking for a stander so I can stand up.   look at the stander in action. Currently I cannot reach a cabinet that is high up or get to the kitchen sink.I also know that according to research it is very important that I bear weight on my legs and practice standing. it is very good for my overall health. When I was at TIRR, My doctor wanted me to have a wheelchair that would allow me to stand up. My physical and occupational therapists wanted that too. However, insurance said no. I have a wheelchair but it will not allow me to stand. I am concerned that the longer I go without standing the chances of my walking again are getting smaller. Please help me get this stander so I can practice standing and hopefully one day I will be able to walk again.


i also want to get a blood pressure cuff to monitor my blood pressure while standing and I want a tray so I can do things while standing!
