Standing Proud

I am very excited to get a call today from DavisMade.
We have waited many many months to get approval for Daniel to get a stander.

It was rejected many times, but with the persistence of his physical therapist and his doctor, it finally got approved!!

So, in about 3 weeks, Daniel will be standing tall and proud in his own Standing Dani. I can't wait!
Pictures to follow in the coming weeks!

For those that have facebook information can be found here: click
Here is an article about the wonderful products they have and a little boy who was able to get his.

Dan Davis invented the Standing Dani[R] Wheelstand for his daughter Dani, who was born with cerebral palsy. Prompting from Dani's physical therapist to make more of Dan's "mobile standing contraptions" for use at school led to the development of his idea into the wheelstand it is today. In the late 1980s, Davis left his job at General Motors to work full-time selling his wheelstand. DavisMade, Inc., has been in business since 1985 and currently employs two full-time and two part-time employees.

The Standing Dani Wheelstand is reportedly the only custom manufactured, self-propelled (either manual propulsion or power-drive option) mobile stander. It is durable, portable, and therapeutically beneficial for children with a wide array of diagnoses. The Standing Dani[R] Wheelstand can be used in- or outdoors and comes in a variety of colors. It is appropriate for children 24-64 inches tall who would benefit from weight-bearing through the lower extremities.

Pricing/funding: Contact company. Covered by most insurance companies and other funding sources.

Warranty: 3 years minimum on wheelstand

Delivery: Depends on location
