Wife. 69 years old. Disabled. Stroke/Alzh. patient.
The ability to recline the person for a more comfortable position. Also, being that the arm rests lift up, it's easier to slide the person onto the seat in the car. Oh, by the way, she really liked being outside in this chair. Her previous chair was a cheap, Medicare, transport chair. It was not a very good chair for her.
The very first time I brought my wife outside in this chair, it became very obvious this chair needs a hood, like the one's on baby strollers.

Super comfortable, lightweight, high quality reclining chair, but somewhat bulky and awkward for the user to maneuver.

I'm a 60-year-old woman who needs a reclining wheelchair because of a spinal cord injury that requires me to remain in a reclined position.
I have the pads that it comes standard with, and the chair is super comfortable -- almost like a Laz-E-Boy recliner! The chair is also lightweight and of very high quality.
The wheel base is longer than other reclining wheelchairs I've used, for stability while reclining, no doubt. But that, in combination with the 22" wheels (which are smaller than on other manual wheelchairs), makes the chair somewhat bulky and difficult for the user to maneuver. Most of the time I have someone pushing me, so this is not a major problem. Also, it barely fits on my Harmar Tilt'n Tote car rack -- a problem I didn't anticipate.
