Uterine prolapse and quadriplegia

I have a friend who has been wheelchair bound for 30 years after a spinal injury. She can move her head and speak but has little or no other voluntary movement. Now she has acquired an apparatus which will allow her to stand while supporting her body. In an upright position is she in any danger of uterine prolapse as the pelvic floor muscles would be unused for such a long time and very weak? It is unlikely she would stay upright for any extended time so perhaps there is no problem awaiting her. She has had no prolapse problems in the past. There is some anxiety about the physiological effects on her body of suddenly changing to an upright standing posture after so long only sitting and lying.
