Karman Healthcare Lightweight Tilt-in-Space VIP-515

Used by husband with advanced Parkinson's disease. Can be adjusted at multiple tilt levels. No worries about him falling out of chair.
Compact and light but gives a smooth ride for patient while easy for caregiver to push. Handles the sidewalk bumps very well. Great for relaxing in.
Definitely need to spend extra money on optional memory foam cushions or chair would not be comfortable.

The user of this chair is my 36 year old son. We needed something light that could be used went we go camping.
It is a light and portable chair with enough support for my son's condition.
It doesn't recline as much as I would like.

Best product for someone without the strength to move themselves!

My dad!! 73 year old male, victim of nursing home abuse who can no longer walk or hold him self up due to his injuries
That it lets me tilt the entire chair back making it more comfortable for my dad. It takes the pressure off his lower back. It make it impossible for him to slide out of his chair. The moveable arm rests make it easy to transfer. The large wheels make it easy to get in and out of doors. It makes it easy for me to transport him without fear of him sliding or slipping or falling out of his chair. It really has been a godsend.. Thank you so very much!
I don't see any weakness with this chair.

good manual chair for pressure relief when power chair isn't available.
joyce v. from glenburnie, md (caregiver)
35 yr old quadraplegic
Easily allows for pressure relief, steer easily when pushing, light in weight folds for travel and storage
Difficult to push when slightly tilted causing the attendant to push using the back rest as the steering mechanism, not the handles, need to buy extra padding for seat and back, arm rest padding broke the second time we used it, it was partially our fault but the break occurred very eaily. Appears to be made of plastic, for such an expensive chair it should at least look like somethng else than plastic.
