DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with paraplegia to stand. The unit is made from two 2 x 4 inch boards and one 0.75-inch piece of plywood. The 2 x 4 s are nailed or screwed to the plywood and the unit has an opening at the bottom for the user's feet to go under. The stand is just propped against a deck railing or secured to the railing with a latch or fastener. The bottom of the 2x4s were cut at a slight angle in order to tilt the stand toward the railing. A piece of rubber should be attached to the bottom of each 2 x 4 to prevent slipping. Folding a blanket over the top of the unit cushions the knees. Foam rubber pads could also be used. The user grabs the railing (not the standing device) and pulls himself up to a standing position. He then then straps himself in with a rope or belt. TITLE: EZ Stand.
