Our son, who suffered a C5 injury two years ago, needs to do more standing. (At present four of us stand him up and support him but none of us can keep this up for more than 20 minutes.)

We are very confused about the comparative advantages and disadvantages of tilt tables and standing frames. Our son used a tilt table when he was in rehab but has never used a standing frame. A tilt table is obviously easier with regard to transfers and can be used flat as a physiotherapy table. Is a standing frame better in any way?

There seems to be a very wide range in terms of capabilities and price for both. At this point we would be looking for something basic and inexpensive (if any of this equipment could be called inexpensive).

Can anyone advise? Thanks.
