---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a standing wheelchair for individuals with mobility disabilities and other individuals who use wheelchairers. Similar to the Segway, the Standing Wheelchair is a two-wheeled cruiser designed to provide with a way to travel while standing. The wheels underneath the Standing Wheelchair perform the same function as those of a regular wheelchair; however, the person is actually standing rather than sitting. The user's legs are held in place so no awkward buckling takes place. The wheels can be stopped so no unplanned rolling occurs. This prototype device offers an alternative to a lifetime of constant sitting. TITLE: Standing Wheelchair offers heightened opportunity for paralyzed individuals. WEBSITE: Engadget.
