My daughter has slight Cerebral palsy. Her legs get weak when she has to walk a lot.
The weight of this chair is a big plus. I'm also disabled and it's so lightweight and easy to use. This is our second one like this one.
Sometimes getting the footrests on and off is a chalenge.

Painful to walk due to arthritis
Light in weight
Not well made too many problems - pulls to the right - hard to release handles and sometimes the left arm does not engage.

Female, age 88, broken hip. Person no longer has the ability to walk.
Rolls easily over rough surfaces (i.e. paving). Also, large wheels eliminates having to lift chair over steps. (see above)
Giving the passenger the ability to set and release the brakes would make this chair almost perfect.

The wheels make it easier to push
The one brake was not working right and needed adjusted.

My husband is an amputee and uses a wheelchair, which I am unable to lift and get in the car, so we needed a transport chair.
Lightweight, well built, easy to use, and a good price.
Haven't found any weaknesses.

My husband can not walk long distances or walk through the Mall..this chair now gives us the ability to do so..light weight in and out of the trunk.
Not too. heavy
Left brake touches the wheel slightly when in motion but not enough to return

My Wife is 84 and has severe COPD along with severe injuries from a head-on collision in 2004. I got no cooperation at all from any local stores.
Much easier to use on rough ground because of the 12" rear wheels.

We purchased this chair for my wife who has problems being on her feet for a long period of time and walking any distance.
Very lightweight, strong, large rear wheels make it very stable in many environments. Liked it so well we told a friend and they went out and purchased the same chair and are also very happy with it.
