This is a way for a person with leg impairments to work on projects close to the floor and then stand up without trouble. It is a mechanic's creeper with a seat and floor jack to lift the operator from a kneeling level up to a sitting position without using leg muscles. The mechanic's creeper is useful because the operator does not need to crawl from one place to another, but can use arm strength to push and pull the creeper into position. The seat is useful because it provides a comfortable position to sit in. The floor jack is useful because it brings the operator into a sitting position that is easy to stand up from with the armrests. This could be useful to farmers, mechanics, maintenance workers in industry, plumbers, gardeners and many other occupations. This would help people with multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injury, arthritis, replaced joints, obesity, leg amputation, stroke, old-age, and many other lower extremity impairments.
