A new wheelchair has been developed by the Chicago Rehabilitation Institute that has recently been renamed a Shirley Ryan Ability Lab to allow its users to switch between standing and sitting positions while retaining the ability to steer and to move a chair in any way. The entirely automatic device uses bicycle chains for power transfers to a system or to a wheel that elevates its consumer from tread-like tank push bars.
The squashbars are analogous to the conventional wheelchairs and are spontaneous. The squash bars are functional.
The user can stay upright to communicate with others while walking along a low, rough surface, or simply sitting and eat.
A strap is used to hold legs from bending when they are up and help to preserve a good position, which should not only help to communicate with others but also to support better blood circulation, prevent butt wounds and improve a number of other problems related to sitting in a standard wheelchair for a long period of time.
Approximately 1.7 million Americans are using scooters or mobility wheelchairs, and large (close to 90%) are using hard-working wheelchairs instead of powered gadgets. Work-intensive wheelchairs currently offer a seated mobility for the consumer. There are, on the other hand, many convincing factors allowing the users to stand.

The Chicago Rehabilitation Institute was recently renamed the Shirley Ryán Ability Lab, and has developed a new wheelchair which allows its users, while maintaining their ability to control and move the chair, to switch between standing and sitting positions. The completely automatic gadget makes use of bicycle chains to move power to any system or wheels to raise its consumers from a tread-like tank push-bar.
The squash bars are analogous as conventional wheelchairs. The down/up device is a spontaneous device.
The user can stay upright to contact others while walking down sidewalks, which are important for conquering rough surfaces or just sitting and eating.
A belt strap is used to keep the legs from bending on the foot to help keep their position upright, not just to help them to communicate, but also to support better blood circulation, avoid sores on butt and to improve several other problems related to sitting in a conventional wheelchair over long periods.
About 1.7 million Americans use mobile scooters and wheelchairs, and large bulk (nearly 90%) use labor-intensive wheelchairs instead of powerful gadgets. Working wheelchairs currently offer a seated position for the mobile consumer; however, there are numerous convincing factors that allow wheelchair users to stand.
Standing functional advantages include:
An extended and increased workspace
Allow simple use of appliances and kitchen counters and access to food shop or cabinet overhead shelves.
The ability to stand could increase independence and improve leisure and employment opportunities.
It is currently unclear when the gadget will become an actual product and whether electrically powered variants will be available manually or only. There is a hope for the disabled person now, however, that can be seen in the future. The new chair can prove to be a very useful product if it is launched to help people to overcome a number of problems.
