The modular seating accommodates the most complex of seating needs, and the tool free adjustments make adjustment the Bantam easy.

Features

Bantam small showing movement
Hip-Knee flexion transfers

The Easystand Bantam provides choices when transferring, as we know each child is different. Compatible with patient lifters, the Bantam allows standing pivot, lateral seat-to-seat, supine flat-to-load, supine with hip and knee flexion transfers or any position in between. 

Easystand Bantam in gradual hip-knee flexion
Gradual range of motion with hip-knee flexion
With the Bantam, you can start in a hip-knee flexion position and gradually increase lower extremity extension. By maintaining a sustained, weight-bearing stretch throughout the standing session, range of motion (ROM) can increase over time for many children.
Full support with sit-to-stand
The Bantam features full body support system with foot plates, knee pads (anterior), seat (posterior) and chest pad (anterior) that supports the individual in all positions from sitting, supine and standing. Children appear to adapt more quickly to standing and weight-bearing when using a sit to stand device due to the extra support and sense of security.
Easystand Bantam in reclined position
Accommodates contractures
The Bantam’s range of adjustability creates the opportunity to stand children with positioning challenges. There are no special modifications are needed to accommodate children with contractures and leg length discrepancies. Simply match the hip and knee flexion of the child; and then, adjust as range of motion in the hips and knees improves.
Easystand Bantam in upright position
Upright standing
The Bantam enables fully upright standing. Upright standing is a natural position with the head, hips, knees and ankles all in vertical alignment. When a child stands upright, they are likely to feel more balanced and are in an optimal position to allow strengthening of the neck muscles. The option to easily go from upright to supine encourages longer periods of standing, especially when loss of head control begins.
Comfort fit for better standing
The Bantam’s modular design works for children who require minimal positioning and has options for those who require maximum positioning and support. There are over 50 positioning and support options available to help keep the most challenging cases safe, aligned and secure. Tool free adjustments ensure that any adjustments are easy to make.

Multiple positioning capabilities

The Bantam can be used as a positioning/activity chair to reduce the need for additional transfers, as it can provide anterior tilt positioning, posterior tilt in space and a true full recline similar to most positioning/activity chairs. nTH Bantam can also be used for feeding, as it’s many adjustments can ensure the optimal feeding position is found.

Plenty of growth

Substantial growth is built in to the Bantam frames alongside tool-free adjustments. The Bantam Extra small features 30cm of height growth and the small and medium both have up to 45cm of height growth.  

Inclusion at school and home
The Bantam allows the child to stand when others are standing, to sit when others are sitting and use the stander under the same tables, up next to the white board or with other educational tools. It can also serve as a positioning, feeding or activity chair both in school and at home. The swing-away, angle adjustable tray is a perfect surface for work, play, communications, nutrition and sensory activities.
