4/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: shizuko k. from basking ridge, nj (caregiver)
User Details: I bought it for my mother in Japan; 90 years old. She can walk short distance but gets tired very easily.
Strengths: Light and yet very comfortable to ride and maneuver. Shock absorpsion is also great.
Weaknesses: Carrying case ripped at the first use.
I wanted to use this wheelchair for travel by train in Japan, and hoping that I can putit folded into a carrying case easily. I found out that I needed to take out front tires in order to do so, and it was too much trouble. I ended up not using a carrying case, which turned out to be OK.
If there is a product much lighter, and easier to carry, I would pay more for it.
Overall, I am very happy with this wheelchair which made it possible for my mother to travel to various places to enjoy beautiful autumn leaves.
