My husband is 6' 1" and weighs 170 pds. He suffers from MS and has lost the use of his entire left side. He is also heat sensitive.
This wheelchair offers comfortable seating and a smooth ride for big or tall guys. You can adjust the length of the foot rest and it comes with a safety strap for those who have trouble holding themselves upright.
Its ONLY weakness are the footrest plates. They squeal loudly when pushing them flat! An added small rubber washer would solve the problem.
