That is fantastic, like a Segway with the ability to sit. I hope it can be mass produced at a reasonable cost.

.
Being upright and mobile is something we easily take for granted.
About a year ago one of the wheelchair replacements was given to a man in an episode of "Extreme Home Makeover" and the first thing he said was he would now be able to "walk" his daughter down the aisle at her wedding.

Love Aww, that is wonderful!! I had encephalitis in 1987 and was in a wheelchair for about 6 months. It was definitely not a pleasant experience mobility-wise, and I can only imagine knowing I wouldn't ever be out of it. I am so glad this is in existence and I hope that it is available more widely soon so more people can walk their daughters down the aisle and see the world again from the perspective of standing up. Yes

It does make intuitive sense...I would love to see the stats on how it changes a person's health outlook in general too. Better circulation, less muscle loss, less depression, more possibilities for income...a different outlook I am thinking scratch
