The Symmetry’s ability to put the body in correct full upright weight bearing and achieve mild hyperextension at the hips while reducing the negative effects of shear is unique to standing systems and is the key to correct standing. This allows adjustment of the standing position for maximum stretch and a progressive standing program.
This achievement has evolved through the Symmetry’s unique design principles.
THE REASONS TO STAND IN SYMMETRY Over-Center Seat Technology & Shear Reduction Sliding-Seat Technology: Reduces the effect of shear as the body moves from sitting to standing while minimizing unwanted postures.
Adjustable Sliding Back: Unique back adjustment system allows precise back movement with the client keeping all support surfaces in proper alignment from sitting to standing.
Symmetry eliminates the effects of shear built into other solid seat standing systems.
See what happens to the support surfaces in a typical solid seat stander. As the body moves, shear occurs and contact surface decreases increasing areas of pressure. Positioning supports move out of position and become non-functional.
