Upright Accessible Seating
The Standing Power Wheelchair Gives the Paralyzed a Way to Stand Up

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Jan 31, 12

The paralyzed may never be able to walk again, but they can stand in some form with the Standing Power Wheelchair. Designer Bruce Lin has conceptualized this wheelchair as a way for people with paralysis of the legs to be able to stand up.

Being able to stand up may not sound like that big of a deal to someone who isn’t paralyzed; for someone that is paralyzed, it means being able to reach a cabinet or a shelf and perhaps, more importantly, being able to look someone in the eye. The Standing Power Wheelchair shies away from the look of contemporary power chairs in favor of a more modern and less bulky design. The wheelchair of the future is already being dreamed up by a variety of creatives. There’s a good chance that Lin’s design, or at least the standing component of it, could become standard issue on the wheelchairs of the future.
