Have used wheelchair 41 years due to parapeligia and always want what I used to, the 9000XT.

66 year old female, paraplegic, very active person.
I appreciate the wrap around arm rests that makes the overall size of chair narrower for tight places. Usually the frame holds up well, however last one had to be welded after the third year. It is comfortable even though I am in wheelchair from around 7 am to 11 pm.
The arm rest covers are not durable and have to be replaced within a year. Also, the arm rest plastic guard, against the thigh cracks and breaks. Those 2 weaknesses are my only complaints.

My 73 year old husband is slowly losing the ability to walk due to a rare inherited condition. This chair will make it much easier for me to help him
The ability to customize a few features makes it more comfortable.
Wish I had ordered the deeper seat.

The 9000XT replaced the Patriot Model. The Patriot was lighter and easier to manouver.

Comfortable, wide color selection. 10 degree tilted back.
Heavier than the Patriot (which was discontinued). Leg rests much too heavy.

The user suffers from Fibromyalgia and has trouble walking for very long. The chair is used when she knows she would be on her feet for a long time.
Seems to be a solid chair.
The quick release wheels. One wheel comes off OK. The other requires much effort (requires a rubber mallet) to take off and put back on. I think it is loosening up some from use and should get better.

27 yr old woman unable to walk and uses a chair on a fulltime basis.
Its fairly lightweight and comfortable as well.
The legs do not adjust to a 90 degree angle so it makes it difficult to get close enough to the stove to cook or to the sink or fridge etc. Also because the legs stick out so far its difficult to maneuver in small narrow tight spaces
