Mobile standers and standing wheelchairs are for people who want to stand without having to stand still. Medical professionals agree that standing is good for the musculoskeletal system, and most experts recommend standing 30 to 60 minutes a day, depending on users’ level of tolerance. (Note: Always consult a doctor before starting a standing program.)
