Hi,
I am doing a university project to make electric standing wheelchairs more affordable. If you currently use an electric standing wheelchair (or even just a powered wheelchair), it would help a ton to have these questions answered. Feel free to answer as many as you want:

What are your opinions on the current price of electric standing wheelchairs and what would you say an affordable price is?

Does your electric standing wheelchair allow you to carry out domestic tasks? Are there any difficulties to overcome?

What aspects would you want improved on your electric standing wheelchair?

Do you mainly use your wheelchair indoors or outdoors?

How frequently do you have to maintenance the wheelchair? Is it too much?

How well does your wheelchair manoeuvre indoors?

What order would you rank the following characteristics for a standing wheelchair: Cost, performance, comfortability, durability, and aesthetics.

If your wheelchair has a recline mechanism, how often do you use it?

Thank you.

    Hi @beno :) Thanks for posting this. 

    Just to check: how would you be using any responses you get from our members? i.e. will they be quoted, or are you just gathering general views at this stage?
