By now you should know I’m a whiny brat like that kid on the “The Sopranos,” and that I always look favorably upon gadgets that try to help the needy. Hence, Pegasus, yet another design concept that tries to improve the lives of the wheelchair-bound. In addition to functioning as an everyday wheelchair, the Pegasus allows for some degree of vertical movement, giving the user, hopefully, a greater sense of mobility. Simple, everyday things like going to the market can be made easier; items once out of reach are now within, etc. I like the idea.
