Default Standing manual wheelchair

Just a prototype, but this invention might have legs, pardon the lame pun. Time will tell, but it's already lit up Facebook. - D

Paralyzed Veterans of America funded the development of a new standing wheelchair prototype at Minneapolis VA to help paralyzed veterans be more productive in daily activities.

Rehabilitation engineers at Minneapolis VA created a new version of the standing wheelchair that improves on shortcomings from previous attempts at helping paraplegic veterans improve their reach. The new chair has greater stability by utilizing a four-wheel platform that reliably shifts weight front and back.
