    Easystand help bowel routine?

    Hi
    Does anyone know if the regular use of Easystand help with bowel routine problems? i.e. slugish or comsipation and such.

    I would say YES it helps or helped me anyway. It is still a bowel program but cut the reading time in half. I have just started with KAFO's and it seems to have made it even faster.

    Be warned it takes days if not a few weeks for the ol'pipes to get adjusted. So be ready when the demon comes knockin. Hope this helps and hope you get one soon.

    Good question.
    Equipment reps suggest that regular use of a standing position with products like Easystand promote better bowel elimination by increasing circulation, reducing skin pressure, promoting gravity,etc. To date, however, there are no studies that
    validate this and so it becomes a personal choice. If you have the equipment available and there is not a lot of cost involved, you may want to try it. Like everything else, there is so much equipment out there that costs money and works for some and not for others.

    Do others have any personal experience with this?

    I have the Easystand 6000. I stand 30-60 minutes every day. I didn't get it until 2 years after my injury and it hasn't made any change with my BP.

    Yes, I didn't stand while in DC, or for several days after while I recovered.
