    Looks like a standing chair, hinged at the "knee" (and it has tube extensions under the front of the footplate, which is used on a stander to prevent tipping forward). I know that Levo were looking at making one similar to that, but I haven't heard whether it has been put into production yet.

    Being a stander (albeit a lightweight-looking one), it would be heavier than an ultralight, so a vehicle lift would certainly be easier than trying to lift it into the vehicle himself.

    And now Essie has just provided the answer!

    Hey that is a video of me!

    Its a great chair. I love it. It certainly is heavier than a non standing chair but its quite light for what it can do.
