The Altitude+ can be used by people with a wide range of conditions. Adults with spinal and head injuries, Multiple Sclerosis or Motor Neurone Disease all have the potential to stand using this piece of equipment. An ideal choice for both a clinic or development centre. There are two lifting mechanisms available for the Altitude+:
The manual lifting mechanism is suitable for lower lesion spinal injuries and paraplegics with good shoulder and arm strength. The manual belt will control lifting as the user rises to standing. If the user should wish to stop during the standing the belts will lock in position, providing reassuring support. This ensures that the user has maximum confidence in standing at their own pace.
The electric lifting mechanism features a motorised belt adjustment system which is capable of lifting up to 180kg (28 stone*). The mechanism will allow those with moderate trunk control to raise themselves from sitting to standing and those with limited trunk control to be guided into standing with attendant assistance.
