Manual Standing Wheelchair in the News

Our manual standing wheelchair has been making headlines this week! The wheelchair, engineered at the Center for Bionic Medicine, lets users remain mobile in either a seated or standing position, or any mode in between. The project was supported by a grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). See below for a recap of the latest media coverage.
