---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a stand up wheelchair for individuals with paraplegia or mobility disabilities. One goal of this prototype, Pegasus, is to break away from the negative images and appearances of current wheelchairs. Pegasus allows for an efficient movement into the upright position. A manual actuation in combination with an electric drive motor with gyroscopic sensors (inspired by the Segway) allows the user to maneuver in very small spaces.
