    hmmmm...I didn't know using a glider you need the help of somebody else to get you set up. I am wanting get one. But, I want to be able to get in, out, and going with out any assistance. They are for sure coming out with a new one, or is that a hear-say?

    Amanda,
    They are coming out with a new one. I have no specifics yet. This came from a rep thru my therapist so the timeframe may be suspect. But they are going to set me up with a loaner Easystand 5000 until the new one comes out. Don't think they would do that if there was any chance of not bringing it out and in a timely manner.

    Thanks to all for your great advice, I knew I would find it here.
    Amanda and McDuff: Brian intends on using the Easystand 6000 unaided. He did not need any help when he tried it out before. He transfers onto the seat, putting his legs in position and lines up his knees with the pads and velcro straps his knees in. Then starts pumping the arm hydraulic handle, and that raises the seat into a standing position, with backrest and front chest pads also holding him upright as well. No help needed. If your hand and arm use is limited, then I could see you may need help to strap in and pump handle.

    I am low para(T10), have good upper body strength so using it is no problem. My problem is spasticity and tone. My legs are a major pita(pain in the a$$) to move. So getting my right leg especially, thru the little space between the seat and knee brace is not feasible for me. If you had low tone or smaller legs (and feet) it might not be an issue for y'all like it is for me. Part of wanting to use this model is to hopefully loosen my legs up some.

    the new one might be out this june:
    EasyStand Evolv

    a nice feature is that it is upgradeable:
    "Previously, our customers had to choose between ordering the EasyStand 5000 and the EasyStand 6000 Glider. With the EasyStand Evolv, our customers can order the Glider option at a later date."
