Powered wheelchairs with elevating seat and/or stand up mechanism

The wheelchairs in this section have an elevating seat and/or stand up mechanism. Wheelchairs with an elevating seat have a battery operated, pneumatic or gas lift mechanism, operated from the wheelchair controls, which allows the user to reach higher levels, perform activities at a similar height, and be at eye level with other people. Care must be taken to ensure that the user's feet or footrests do not become trapped under furniture as the seat rises up. Some models can be driven at a reduced speed with the seat fully elevated. Wheelchairs with a stand up mechanism may have a supporting harness and pads around the trunk and knees, which are worn all the time in the sitting position. The stand up mechanism is usually operated by the user from the controls and involves the seat and backrest flattening out to bring the person up to vertical. It is recommended that medical advice is sought before trying one out if the person has not stood for a long time.
