These elevating wheelchairs were designed by Melbourne, Australia’s Jake Eadie.

Powered by an electric suspension mechanism, these wheelchairs give the users more mobility than traditional seated wheelchairs, as they can change posture more freely to nearly a fully upright position.

As pictured here, the user’s body would be at a slight angle, but nearly perfectly vertical.
