    Also, just a technical point, but that's not a manual chair.

    Interesting. I can't imagine though living with that on a day to day basis especially in tight bathrooms and that sort of thing.

    Is there a way to see this without *facebook*?
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    I?m not convinced about the standing aspect, but the 4 wheel drive electric hub motors are interesting.

    Thanks Gordy. This thing would be fantastic if he *reversed* it. It needs the big wheels in back and the omni wheel casters in front.

    It wouldn't stand if this was done.
