my son is nearly 16years old and mainly dependant in a powered wheelchair balder/etac which now stopped selling them which is fine as I am not happy with the company. I wonder if anyone of you wheelchair users have issue with companies who are "abled bodies" if that what we call them selling wheelchair to disabled people where they have no empathy or understanding. I wish to know and should there be a company of disabled people selling wheelchairs as obviously the best people to know and understand?

Secondly I am looking thinking now at a wheelchair which can change to standing position as well as tilt back and raise up etc as I seen one at Cyclone mobility which had new latest one from france. I wonder what anyone think of a powered chair that can change to standing. my son physio keep making reservation about it. How can my son be empowered in his decision on what he want/wish but also be able to do the job safely on his body without worsen it further?
