The Minnesota VA has created a wheelchair that can help people stand. They are looking to market this soon. It will be awesome for those who are wheelchair-bound be mobile in new ways. It will also help maintain bone density as it will provide the opportunity to put bones in the arm under stress as the chair is put into the vertical position. Bones not put under stress lose density and is one of the reasons why we should include some sort of resistance training as we age.
