Brief Submission Description:
The Hurrichair helps seniors become more independent in their everyday lives. It lifts seniors to a standing position using a Linear Actuator powered off a 12 volt battery, while at the same time supporting their body mass. This chair is only intended for partially disabled seniors, and not ones with no use of their lower body. The Hurrichair also has an intention of helping seniors getting out of their current chairs.
