… you have to be very spry and have good trunk strength to use it. Oops.
If you are paralyzed, it would be a nightmare to try to transfer into this wheelchair because you have to get your legs to straddle it. Then there’s the problem of no back support or lateral support, so that a paralyzed person would fall out of it, either immediately or when going around a corner.
I like that they tried, though. They seem like smart people and once they involve the people their product is designed for in order to meet their real needs, they could do great things.
