Elevated standing


Thanks to an app people with disabilities can date on an equal footing. And soon the same could be true for wheelchair users – at work and at home.

A Lithuanian startup has developed a mobile device, which moves people from a sitting to a standing position at the touch of a button.

The equipment is self-balancing and controlled by upper body movements – or by smartphone. Shock absorbers aim to ensure a comfortable ride.

The top speed is 20 km/h over a range of 30 km and the battery is fully rechargeable inside four hours. The saddle and leg support are tailored to individual body sizes.

Ideal partner? A smart sensor mat perhaps. Has upgrade potential at the airport.
