This Affordable Standing Wheelchair From India Could Help Many People

This standing wheelchair allows disabled people to easily shift to a standing position.

It’s called Arise and it’s designed in India by Phoenix Medical Systems to allow the user to independently rise to a standing position.



Most wheelchair users require considerable help to get to a standing position but Arise uses a gas spring mechanism that’s adjustable to user’s weight for a smooth transition.

The ability to get to a standing position is greatly beneficial to the health, self-esteem and sense of wellbeing of a wheelchair user. Arise brings back the freedom to achieve it.

The chair supports people up to 110 kg (242 lbs) and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It’s affordably priced and costs just $200.
