Georgia National Guard Sergeant Christopher "Kit" Lowe tries out the hands-free wheelchair with design inventor Merry Lynn Morris, USF faculty advisor & professor, at the University of South Florida. Lowe was critically wounded in August 2009 in a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan; he is still recovering from a bullet wound to his upper right thigh.
Having wounded soldier friend of Liisa Temple - Kit Lowe - try out the hands-free wheelchair today, was very special for me. It is especially great to have feedback from a wounded veteran as I serve on the committee with General Martin R. Steele for the Veterans Re-Integration initiative. Can't wait to have the new prototype next year for Kit to try !
