Click ^ link for complete Gizmodo article. Interesting product, but I can’t see it as much more than novelty use. Yes, you’re standing, and it’s small wheelbase is good for access, but two major things that’ll bug me to no end- one, all that hardware in front of you? They even show him having to pull up askew to a circular table. Nope. And two? In the real world there’s this thing called UNEVEN TERRAIN. In completely flat environments, sure I’d tool around in this thing. But I wanna see this thing on video making it up a minor grade. No WAY I’d take this out on an uneven sidewalk. You’re strapped the hell in; I can only wonder what the recovery from a spill would be.
Well um. Kudos to try and innovate though.
I think this would only be practical for home use. It would be great health wise to stand a lot at home while still getting around, but for use out in the real world it would suck. I think it would be as confining as a regular power chair. I’m sticking with my manual chair its a much more versatile device. Simple is usually the best choice I think. Too many gadgets clutter up the day.
I've been in a chair for 13 years and I'm still shocked sometimes by how much people don't know what it's like to even be a crippie persons friend. So this blog is aimed at informing the masses. If you have any questions or curiosities my ask box is always open.
This is my second blog so I can only follow people on my first blog Pinkcrusader.
