REAL Mobility Chair
Left pic of young blonde woman in an office chair with 4 wheels & 2 stabilizing jacks near the rear wheels that is raised to near-standing height. Rt pic of same but chair not as high.

The REAL Mobility Chair raises and lowers with battery power so workers with leg limitations in the farm shop or office can (1) more easily stand up from a seated position or (2) raise/lower the seat to a working position with minimal leg strength. It enables users to work at various levels and carry out activities previously difficult or impossible to do without someone assisting. Movement along the floor is accomplished through the user's leg movement or from pushing by another person. It has a cushioned seat/back, is 16, 17, or 19 inches wide, and has large ball-bearing wheels. This battery-powered, height-adjustable chair is available in three seat-tilt models: no-tilt, gas-spring manual tilt, and electric tilt. Its controls are positioned under one of the armrests, and it will reportedly accommodate one weighing up to 330 pounds.
