User Details: My wife is a 35 year old hemiplegic (Brown-Sequard) - she has good movement on her right side, but almost none on her left. She cannot stand without h
Strengths: Like all ActiveAid products, it is strong and durable. It is also very easy to fold and unfold. It folds quite flat and fits neatly into the travel bag. Previously, we had a lightweight aluminum chair (made by Drive Medical) that with some difficulty came apart and had to be rebuilt at the destination, but it was too high and the bar used as a footrest didn't work for my wife. Then we had one that folded but still had to be clumsily pushed around rather than carried (Invacare Mariner.) It is hard to find a folding shower chair that suits our needs - this one does it nicely.
Weaknesses: A tad pricey; it is also heavier and heavier-duty than necessary for my petite wife. The drab gray paint is depressingly institutional-looking, but that doesn't really bother us.
