Medline Excel 2000
Returned the chair because my husband did not find it comfortable for him.

Due to a stroke, my husband lost the use of his right side almost 15 years ago. He will be 84 in July.
It is well made and sturdy, however my husband was not comfortable in it. He preferred his original Excel 2000.
Although the measurements were the same as his original Excel 2000, the seat did not sit as comfortable.

Unable to walk without wheelchair/live in townhome with 3 floors so I need something on each floor. It would be too much for me to carry wheelchair up
I have not gone for a ride in it with the dog so I hope he will adjust to the larger w/chair size. The size was really why I needed it. I gained weight while waiting for my ramp to be built. I think once I can get out again things will be better.
It is a larger chair so it is more difficult for me to get it into the car. I may have to eventually get a mobility-improved car. I think overall the wheelchair meets my needs.

I am 66 years old and have cerebral palsy affecting me only from the waist down. I had surgery to lengthen my Achilles tendons
1. My old wheelchair brakes pushed forward to stop and pulled back to move. This one is the opposite - forward to move and pull back to stop. Took some time to get used to that. 2. The pocket behind the back is too tight - makes it awfully small to put anything into it. Can't carry much. 3. My old chair also had a seat belt which I really liked and came to depend on, as I don't use the foot pedals much in my house. It would be nice if my new chair had a seat belt too, but it doesn't. I tend to slide out of the seat when I don't have the foot supports on.

Can't stand long; can't walk. I am a 69 year old female.
I am 235lbs and seat has sagged some, I bought a chair that had a 300lb weight limit thinking it would be better than one with 250 limit. It's not better.

53 year old male who suffered a devastating snow mobile accident. Immobilized right leg for at least 9 weeks with a severe compound fracture
It is substantial and pretty comfortable. I need to keep my leg raised and can easily with the optional pieces.
The chair is pretty heavy. I know, I just said as a strength that it is substantial!
