Center-mounted footrests lift to be stowed beneath the seat well, and lower to be deployed. A mechanism for independent operation of footrest stowage and deployment is not included in market power wheel chairs, and PWC users have expressed the need for such a mechanism. We aim to design a solution that permits wheelchair users to independently lift and lower a center-mounted footplate during transferring processes.
