5/5 Ease of Use
5/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: kim k. from york, pa (caregiver)
User Details: My 96 year old mom who cannot get into and out of a conventional bed after a hip fracture 6 years ago.
Strengths: My mom is only 5'1" and the petite chair is perfectly proportioned for her. Because her situation was an "emergency" when she broke her hip, we bought a conventional sized chair that we could get quickly. She always struggled with having to scoot back on the seat and use pillows behind her back to position herself comfortably. When we decided to replace that chair with a Golden Technologies "petite chair" we were able to wait they 5-6 weeks it took to have the exact chair we wanted manufactured. What a difference! Every time I speak with my mom she manages to work into the conversation how much she loves her chair and how much more comfortable she is with the proper proportions. We could not be happier with our purchase!
Weaknesses: She has been using the chair for about 6 weeks now and we haven't found any weaknesses. We were a little concerned about the controller (thought there might be too many choices) but she has figured it out and does not mention any difficulties with it.
