4/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: frank h. from seattle, wa
User Details: I'm a 44 white male with a rare disease called Pompe's disease. I'm unable to walk more then a few block. I purchased this wheelchair to get me thru
Strengths: The light weight, and collapsability making it easy for packing on planes and into backs of taxis.
Weaknesses: Inflatable wheels come with air stems aligned in a manner making it almost impossible to add air to wheel. I had to order new tubes with valve stems pointing at a 45'angle. Also, if tire goes flat, when refilling, tube will bulge out unevenly. Called manufacturer and was told "yes, we know this is a problem". Must refill tire with wheel detached from chair. Must 'work' tire with hands while filling wiht air, to keep tube from bulging out. The bulging will create uneven ride and cause tube to wear out prematurely.
