My 80 year old husband with cancer and a recent femur fracture.
Tall back, reclining
Because of those features, it is heavy so can not lift it into the car

I purchased this for an elderly (94) year old lady. She has a very bad hip. So far the chair has done everything we need it to do.
It goes thru doors with ease. Does everything it says it will do. makes her comfortable.
So far all I can say is it is heavy - and that was expected.

This wheelchair is used by my sister primarily to go to doctors' appointments. She is totally disabled physically, though not paralyzed.
We like the features that accommodate her long legs and the leg extension feature as her feet need to go up when she is rolled into her wheelchair van. With the extension, the leg attachment elongates as well as goes up.
We have not yet found just the right spot to fasten the front of the wheelchair into the wheelchair van.

I'm a 57 yr old quadriplegic with a blockage to my bladder.
The ability to lay flat when I go to the Dr. I purchased this chair so that the DR. could lay me flat to place a Foley catheter.
Hard to push on inclines due to the wheel being further back for balance when laying flat.

Husband with a mental condition who broke his hip recently.
It is sturdy and reclines, and has a tall back so he has back support.
It is hard to put the chair in a full upright position when my husband just lays there, and I need to maneuver around corners.

I am 60 years old and I had to have a a serious neck surgery last year. Prior to the surgery, I had lost my ability to walk without a walker.
The Tracer SX5RC wheelchair is well made, sturdy and easy to handle.
In all fairness, I have not had the chair long enough to comment on its weaknesses. However, I sincerely doubt that there will be many, if any to share.
