Drive Medical Go-Kart

I bought the Go Kart for my adult son who has a genetic movement disorder and can't walk. I keep this one in my car.
This is a good looking chair in black and has nice finishing on it. It is easy for me to handle getting it in and out of the car.
The only thing that could be improved is add straps to secure the retractable foot rests. They fall off every time I fold up the chair and put it in the car. I bought black Velcro strips and sewed them on each side with a tab that I can secure the foot rests and they don't fall off! The manufacturers really should do this. It's simple and very helpful.

Seventy One year old female stricken with PSP( Progressive Supranucleur Palsy) She is barely ambulatory with severe equilibrium problems.
Light weight, maneuverable, foldable enough to fit most small automobile trunks.
The foot rests should lock in place under the chair when not in use. Most homes not built for handicap access have very limited space to maneuver around furniture. Footrests in use guarantees a maneuverability problem. Folded back when you push the chair thru a limited space then have to back the chair out, invariably the footrest flare out and get caught. To solve this problem I use a large rubber band under the chair to prevent them from slinging out. Design a detent to hold them under the chair when not in use.

Used to transport a 76 year old woman with Alzheimers.
Well made basic chair and low cost.
Tendency to tip over backwards when person sits down. Rear wheels need to be moved back just a little to make chair more stable. Also, seat is too low for a 5ft 7inch person. Need an adjustment capability for height of seat or length of legs.
