Not bad, although clear limits on how far it can be adjusted. No instructions, so we had to figure out adjustments ourselves.

Female 59 femoral stress fracture and related complications
Those adjustments we could make weren't too difficult. Very light weight and easy to get in car.
Adjustments got me quite close to a perfect fit, but not quite. Unclear yet how durable this will be. Need better instructions/website for directions.

59 year old looking for lightweight chair to allow me to be more mobile
Lightweight, ease of use, comes apart & goes back together fairly easy. Adjusts easily enough. Footrests work well.
Adjusting wheel brakes difficult with allen wrenches to get them tight enough

Mary Ann is 81 years old, fell and broke her femur. This femur had been broken and fixed three times in 1987-1990.
Lightweight and many ways to adjust the back, height, etc.
On this one,the seat could be a little deeper but I think this is what we ordered.

I'm 78 but am disabled with neuropathy, stenosis and arthritis so that I can no longer walk or stand for more then a minute or two.
The light weight and comfort while sitting are the best.
Difficult for me to maneuver on carpeting, but that's not a huge problem. Others are able to roll it easily for me.

This is a well-made chair. After using heavier, less expensive chairs for years this more than meets my expectations. I noticed that even the parts (especially in front) that would nick the furniture are more rounded and less destructive to what they come into contact with. The chair itself is more comfortable to move around in as it responds to my touch easier. My family and friends don't complain when we go somewhere as this wheelchair is much lighter to transport. Wish that I had been able to get this sooner.
I haven't had it long enough to determine any problems. Maybe there aren't any, at least for me.

She is 48 & has degenerative disc disease, has had multi-level fusions, and has fibromyalgia. She's also cranky.
Lightweight, folds up smaller than other chairs.
The seat has to be pulled apart to fold correctly and the handles don't raise.
