The DELTA Advance can be used by people with a wide range of conditions. Adults with spinal or head injuries, Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease all have the potential to stand using this piece of equipment.
The Delta Advance lifting mechanism features a motorised belt adjustment system which is capable of lifting up to 120kg (19 stone), an updated motor is available with a maximum lift of 140kg (22 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.
Where the DELTA Advance differs from other electric standing frames is in its patented Patient Seating Positioner (PSP). This has three uses:
Firstly, it compensates for different wheelchair types by allowing the knee pads and hand tubes to come to the user. By operating the recline function through the hand control unit, the standing frame will tilt towards the seated user enabling easier access. A byproduct of this is that the stander will return the user back precisely to their original seated position and this prevents the carer from having to "shuffle" the user back into his/her seat after use.
Secondly, this recline feature may be used once the user is stood, to move the user into a slightly supine position (up to 7.5° recommended). For some users, this helps them to achieve better head control. Note: This function should only be used as part of a professionally prescribed standing program.
Finally, the reciprocal movement between the lifting belts and the PSP offers an unprecedented level of comfort during the standing and sitting process and reduces any sensations of compression on the knees.
Additional supports are available which can be used to control complex conditions by stabilising the pelvis and spine to give a good 'mid-line' position. The hip bar and pads are the foundation for upper body control as they are used to stabilise and stop rotation in the pelvis. The thoracic support and laterals are added to the hip bar and pads for greater control of the trunk.
If a user has a tendency to lean back or gains better independent head control from having support behind them, the thoracic support can be attached to the hip bar. If the user has a tendency to lean to one side, the lateral supports will help them maintain a central position.
