Standing is one of the most complicated things that humans do: controlling lots of joints and body parts with gravity working hard to pull you down to the floor.  If you have weak muscles or lack strength to stand on your own then there are many products to help you.  Standing is many different positions and you might want to stand prone (tilted forward), upright or supine (supported behind) and although each position offers you something special, they all offer greater weight bearing through your legs which helps to strengthen your bones.  Standing is important for physical and social skill learning.
