5/5 Ease of Use
3/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: thomas p. from portland, or (caregiver)
User Details: 78 year old female with Vascular Dementia
Weaknesses: This specific chair has a slightly wobbly back, and the right seat back post is loose and is not able to be tightened.
The leg supports fit into open vertical tubes that are exposed when the leg supports are removed, creating interesting little places to stuff things, like unwanted food. Since we do not use the leg/foot rests, we had to find rubber plugs to close the tubes off.
For over $1,400.00 this chair really should have come assembled in the box. The assembly instructions/pictures were very poorly written, but at least there were some, making this much better than a smart phone. There were, however, no instructions on how to make adjustments to the velcro back support. Making [the customer figure out] back support is not really a good concept. All in all, the patient loves her new chair, and is much more comfortable in it than in her off-the-shelf industrial Nova chair. Would I buy this again? Probably, but in retrospect, I would ask questions.
