Tires have no tread and would slide on the floor with brakes on.

User Details: The user is my husband. I am his caretaker when needed. He uses a wheelchair due to not being able to walk. He can do transfers.
Strengths: Seat was comfortable.
Weaknesses: Tires lacked any tread to hold ground and would slide even with brakes holding tires in place. Slick tire surface. My husband uses the frame where the foot rests go in place to hold his phone and glasses case. (it's a "must have" functionality thing for him.) This wheelchair did not have any features that could hold his eyeglasses or his cell phone. His shower has a ramp going into it and this wheelchair would not stay in place during his transfer from the shower chair to the wheelchair. Not a safe situation and it was fortunate that I just happened to be in the bathroom with him while he was attempting this transfer. If I had not been in there, he could have been seriously hurt. We keep a large mat in front of the shower to collect any water to keep the floor as dry as can be on the ramp. this chair was sliding on the mat. This chair even slid on bare floor with the brakes on.
