Too wide and low for a tall slender user; brakes hard to operate
5/5 Ease of Use
3/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: jean-anne m. from allison park, pa (caregiver)
User Details: Disabled 98 year-old man
Strengths: Light weight, easy to fold
Weaknesses: This chair was wider and lower than the other chair we have, and the arm rests were shorter. The brakes were hard to operate and required the caregiver to bend over to use them. We returned it and purchased a higher, narrower product with bicycle type brakes. My dad is fairly tall (6' when he was young) so a higher chair works better. The wide width made this chair harder to handle inside. Dad did not like the shorter armrests; they were too far back for him to grab in order to pull himself up effectively. The brakes were difficult to operate; if the caregiver is supposed to be able to set and release them with her feet, we could not figure out how to do that. Bicycle brakes that allow you to set both brakes at once while standing are much better.
