Default standing if disabled

If you can walk a coarse ,get up and down into a sitting position 20 time's then it beg's the question on just how bad the knee's are.
I know there are genuine people with genuine problem's,but it seem's a bit of a soft option for some competitor's to take these sitting.
If the standing position is deemed to be harder then why can't the none kneeler shoot the lane standing?
That way if they cannot kneel they are not takeing any advantage.
Why not just do away with kneeler's full stop.
For what it is worth i think the sitting class is a good idea,But it will make people's average % look better due to close target's.
May have to take top sitting score as standard for that class.
About as much use at field target , as a life guard at the Olympic swimming pool.
