The Standing Wheelchair concept design allows wheelchair users to stand upright in the wheelchair, allowing them to see the world as they did before. It looks similar to a Segway, but has more features to help the user keep upright and hold on to the wheelchair.
One of the many lifestyle adjustments paraplegic wheelchair users have to make is getting used to viewing the world sitting down. It really makes a difference, we hear, when you can no longer talk to people face to face. With the standing wheelchair, users can interact with people and generally regain some of their former "perspective".
