At the age of 18 I was in a car accident leaving me paralyzed from the neck down. I spent 50 days in the ICU fighting to stay alive on a ventilator and a feeding tube and then another 45 days in a therapy rehab where I had to relearn everything. How to talk, eat, dress, etc. It has now been 6 years since my injury and I have only been able to stand once. As an incomplete C5 quadriplegic I come across health issues on a daily basis. (Low blood pressure, poor circulation in the legs, spasms, and at risk for pressure wounds. Just to name a few) My Goal is to eventually own a Standing Frame to help with these issues and possibly one day walk again. There are many benefits of using a Standing Frame. So many that I have provided a link for you here:
