ALPHA is a revolutionary standing mobility aid for the lower limb disabled. The aim of this thesis project is to design a better, lighter, more comfortable and stylish mobility aid with standing capabilities so that users can interact with more of the world around them. The standing feature is the primary focus of the design as it allows for more user independence; enables users to be less reliant on others for extended vertical reach in a standard non-modified environment (e.g. kitchen installations, retail environments, etc.).
