Title: Sit-stand wheelchair footrest
Description: The design challenge was to hack wheelchair footrests to allow the user to periodically stand. This unique design easily retracts out of the way and flips back down safely and securely. Many wheelchair users have the ability to stand for short periods - and if that's the case, it's important to continue to exercise like this for bloodflow and to maintain muscle tone. The project was overseen by a Volunteer with the Vancouver chapter of the Tetra Society of North America.
