Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated January 8, 1963 partially reads, "David Curtis slid from his wheelchair, moved himself into a large metal frame with wheels, locked the back rest into place and scooted about is Woodland Hills photography shop standing up. Curtis, a paraplegic since World War II, has no use of his legs. Yet the unusual device, called a 'stand-alone,' is so efficient. "I run all over town in it." The stand-alone device is allowing paraplegics for the first time to stand and move around unaided."
