Active Body, Inc. is a startup company in the Atlanta, GA area. Our mission is to make life better for the elderly and people with physical deficiencies. We have designed a wheelchair that will encourage continued standing and walking for those who can still do so with some assistance. The Rise Active Chair features a robotic powered lift that will help the user to transition naturally and easily to a standing position. Walking is facilitated within a safe supportive frame.
