    Although there are standing, manual wheelchairs. Levo sells one in the US (made in Europe) and then there seems to be a knock-off of the Levo on

    Here's the Malaysian one (wheelchair88 is in Malaysia):

    It's less than half the price of the Levo.
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.

    I don?t see why (unless I?m missing something)...the standing function occurs when the wheels drive towards each other, and given all 4 wheels are powered, I?m sure it could be reconfigured to work with the omniwheels at the front. That being said, with wheels that size, the advantage of standing to reach something (their words, not mine) is negated by having to reach over a longer horizontal distance because you can?t get close enough!
