User Details: The user of this product is an 88 year old woman with extreme joint deterioration from arthritis.
Strengths: It's lightweight. The hand brakes are easier to use then the lower brakes. It's smaller than average size is a plus for narrow spaces.
Weaknesses: The lower brake handles stick out 2 inches further than the chair and cause problems in very narrow spaces. Add 4 inches to the width if you're calculating for space requirements. It is also difficult to reopen the chair once closed.
