    Smile 11 years ago today i got my SCI, but for the first time am standing up.

    how am i standing you ask. with the help of technology of course. i purchased a used standing wheelchair 2 weeks ago and so far its awesome. i did not even get light headed fter not standing for over a decade. everything looks different wen you go from being 4ft to 6'1. its great and im hoping in the next 5 years a SCI treatment comes out and i can stand unassisted. COMON FUTURE!

    does anyone else have a standing chair?

    Congrats on the liberation!

    Still wondering what's keep you vertical w/o a chest strap, must have a great core going on.

    I hope you've been standing(frame) up until the chair though..just worried about HO or brittle bones breaking.

    You look good, man.

    Yeah, don't fall forward. That would be carnage.

    Did you get a bone density test before you started standing again?
