    11 years ago today i got my SCI, but for the first time am standing up.

    how am i standing you ask. with the help of technology of course. i purchased a used standing wheelchair 2 weeks ago and so far its awesome. i did not even get light headed fter not standing for over a decade. everything looks different wen you go from being 4ft to 6'1. its great and im hoping in the next 5 years a SCI treatment comes out and i can stand unassisted. COMON FUTURE!

    does anyone else have a standing chair?

    Congrats on the liberation!

    Still wondering what's keep you vertical w/o a chest strap, must have a great core going on.

    I hope you've been standing(frame) up until the chair though..just worried about HO or brittle bones breaking.

    Enjoy!

                    Did you get a bone density test before you started standing again?

                        hey thanks for everyones input. i stood 1 time in a standing frame for about 10 minutes 2 years ago at a friends house. i was hooked then at seeing things at a different view. i didnt get dizzy or have any ad. i never got a bone density test. im trusting all the working out, range of motion, and eating right has kept my bones decent. i do not stand for more then 5-10 minutes and have only been doing it the last 2 weeks about 3 days a week and 5-7 times each day. i have made an appointment next week with my SCI dr from RIC dr david chen. so far i think im ok, im complete so i cant feel, but i have no swelling, herd no cracking, and dont have ad.

                        as far as where i purchased the chair.. i happened to get lucky and found it for sale on ebay. this chair brand new is $28,000 thanks to ebay i got a great condition chair for $7000. what a steal!!
