DESCRIPTION: The object of this project is to design a mobile standing frame for paraplegic individuals confined to conventional wheelchairs. Paraplegic individuals are required to spend time in a standing frame (upright position) to allow circulation in the lower body, and for the strengthening of muscles. The main goal of this project is to allow mobility during required standing times, and to allow individuals to interact in a social setting at eye level.
