Some of our first ideas, and our first direction!!
Using 3 offset linkages to form a stable base for a chair seat, that would be raised though the turning of a lead screw.
Lining up several steps that a person could push from up from sequentially to eventually get into tall enough chair to stand up from
Combining the structure and collapse-ability of tents to create a lightweight version of the stepping stool idea.
Using a normal Camping chair: replace the seat with a strap wrapped around, then use a ratchet to shorted the strap bringing the two sides together and raising the user.
We love how simple this idea was and decided to start out prototyping here!!!
