Karman Healthcare Lightweight S-Ergo 115/125
betty r. from plano, tx (caregiver)
74 year old female stroke survivor with right side weakness.
Brake linkage is way above the average; which makes brakes easy to apply. Light weight & durable.
Knurled brake rods do not keep rubber wheels from turning like a knife edge lock would. Sitting for long periods is uncomfortable & the optional cushion could be improved.

Seat too high for petite person; hard for petite person to maneuver; had to return chair for refund.

Lightweight, well built, easy to fold up, love the brake locks!

I walk with sticks, but use a wheelchair when I have to go long distances.
It is lightweight and wheels easily. Very portable. Folds into the back of our Prius very nicely.
The pushing ring could be the same size all around. It varies too much to be comfortable when I push it myself.

For my 92 year old mother to replace old std chair. She loves the looks and that seat style keeps her from slumping - I love easy transport.
Back support, lightweight, price

Male, 76 yrs. old. Losing use of legs. Depend on my wife to lift wheelchair in and out of wagon also to push it if distance is not short.
The back folding down makes it easy to get into the car and it is also lighter than my previous chair.
The 'nobbly' tires make it harder to push and I don't like the newshape of the hand wheel.Much harder to propel myself in it.

90 year old wheelchair-bound lady weighing 225 lbs.
The ergonomic features of this wheelchair are second-to-none. My mother-in-law is much more comfortable and loves the back support. The thin (but comfy) washable seat cushion is fantastic, and she is much happier not to be up so high. We were worried that she would not be able to self-propel with her feet, but the thin cushion makes the seat-to-floor height perfect for her.
Slight indentations on the armrests seemed to irritate her super-sensitive skin, so we bought covers for them.
