        I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

          Wow! Technology is amazing sometimes. It looks like a nice design, though it needs some adapting for those of us who require extra help. It definitely has possibilities. It WOULD be great if costs decrease. I wonder how upkeep would work? Would these chairs hold up as long? Are they all plastic or can 3D printers use other materials? I'm interested to see what happens over the next few years...I'm with nonoise: I'd like an off road model with extra options!!
