Standing/Elevating Wheelchairs

A standing wheelchair is a type of assistive technology, similar to a standing frame, that allows a wheelchair user to raise the chair from a seated to a standing position. The standing wheelchair supports the person in a standing position and enables interaction with people and objects at eye level.  

An elevating wheelchair is similar in that it allows an individual to interact with their environment at eye level; but has a seat elevating system or mechanism that lift the user up while in the chair.
