Regarding function, two systems are presented: the first is the traction through a lever, connect to gears, to reached more velocity and rising slopes. The second function system is the latch rises, when activated it blocks the reverse motion, so there is no need to hold the chair to prevent it from coming back, reducing user fatigue. http://vimeo.com/32960405
