Drive Medical Lightweight Expedition w/12" Rear Wheels

My 67 year old wife has MS. and can hardly walk at all. We use the chair when going anywhere.
Strongly made. Nice, large, strong rear tires. Nice, fairly strong brakes.
When you collapse the handles to put it into the trunk of our car the handles take a lot of effort to collapse and then when you try to put the handles back in place, they have to be pushed hard to "lock" the handles...not real easy as it should be, .... in my opinion.

The ease of use of this lightweight chair is great. We are able to go to the mall and other places where before we could only go short distances.

She is 80 years old and walks with a cane for short distances and has difficulty breathing.
The lightweight fold up style goes right into the trunk of my car and with the larger rear wheels, it pushes very easily.
I really don't think there are any weaknesses

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.

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.
