Scissor Lift Wheelchair

Top Shelf? No Problem.

Standard wheelchairs have X & Y-axis motion down pat, but offer nothing but frustration for those who would dare to venture into the Z-axis.

The GROGco Scissor Lift Wheelchair is a cross between a standard motorized wheelchair and a scissor lift. You simply stop where you need to reach something on the top shelf, then the seat will bring you up as high as you need to go.

Also makes a great deer stand for handicapped hunters (GROGco engineers recommend the 4 wheel drive off-road kit for this application, and the trailer hitch attachment for dragging your kill out of the forest).

       Gives me an idea...

       Many electric wheelchairs already have this standard or as an option, called a power seat lift. It's not a scissor lift per se, more of a motor-driven lift column. Still, nothing new here.

       HA HA I say! Mention not these (discontinued) pretenders!   

       I'm talking REAL lift! Tree topping lift! Paint the house lift! Best seat at the concert lift!

       Why stop there? Why not a full-on cherry picker?

       Why should anyone have this superpower, unless it's used in a ring setting for bouts of some kind?   

       Also, I wonder why more wheelchairs don't hold people in a nearly vertically standing position, but taller, the way I've seen with some prams?

       If it can't manage higher than low Earth orbit, I'm going to have to re-consider that bun...

       //low Earth orbit//   

       A launch capability, perhaps? The GROGco Engineering Department **does** have one wing full of bored ex-NASA engineers...
Grogster, May 30 2013
  

       Only the one wing? Sounds not very aerodynamic. Anyway, it's more usual to keep the fuel tanks in the wings, but it's up to you.
