    Default New folding/standing wheelchair?

    Does anyone know anything about this standing wheelchair or about the place that is developing it?

    I watched the video. Neat. It seemed to me that it is a prototype and not a finished design. I say this because the video shows few of the actual details of how it works. Has bulldozer type tracks where your arms move it or raise the chair? I will look for more video.
    I have a manual chair but this is the kind Sunshine would find helpful...maybe.
    Thanks. Interesting.

    That looks pretty neat. It must be better for a person's general health to be upright more than is typical for a wheelchair user, and certainly it would be easier and more interesting to be able to spend more time standing.

    No information on pricing or insurance coverage--as you say, Linda, it's probably just in the development stage.
