Caribou

The Caribou is our new standing frame. The frame supports the prone or supine standing position. With its ability to switch from a horizontal to a vertical position, the Caribou is designed to accommodate a wide range of users.

A good standing position can be achieved for people with spasticity, contractions and circulatory deficiencies.

The Caribou is built with a base board and a series of optional upper body supports is available to provide the optimum freedom of movement. A wide range of accessories is also available to meet the specific needs of the user.

The Caribou is available in four sizes for users up to 220 lbs. and 75" tall.
