4.0 / 5
Strengths:

Light weight, easy to use and transport

Weaknesses:

Brakes are so hard to set and release that I avoid using them when possible. The foot platform used to tilt the front wheel up to cross doorways is too small.

4.0 / 5
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.

Good chair but quality not up to par.

 
3.5 / 5
Strengths:

Weight and size.

Weaknesses:

This is the third chair we have purchased. Sewn seams on base bars at front of seat have split on both sides on the two previous chairs. Not the weight. My wife weighs only 130 pounds. Need to offer heel loops on foot pads and installed. Have purchased loops for previous two and self installed.

Most features are O.K.

 
3.8 / 5
Strengths:

Lightweight and easy to load. I don't know how durable it will be, because I haven't had it that long. It should hold up, however since I only use it in the car.

Weaknesses:

Definitely the fact that every time I fold it up to load, the foot rests fall off and then I have to take the time to line them up to get them back on! There ought to be a way to secure them when the chair is folded up so they don't fall off. That should be improved on. It's very frustrating.

Mom loves her new wheels!

 
4.3 / 5
Strengths:

So lightweight and easy to get in and out of the car. Arm rests are low so it fits under tables, which means mom can join us at restaurants and remain seated in her chair. And it looks nice, too.

Weaknesses:

Haven't come across any weaknesses. It's a great product.

4.0 / 5
Strengths:

Weight and ease of transportation. It even fits in my SmartCar!

Weaknesses:

No weaknesses, you just have to learn not to hold the side of the chair when opening it up or your fingers can get smashed.

Easy to carry..lightweight..

 
4.3 / 5
Strengths:

It is light but seems to weigh more than advertised..more like 21 lbs...definitely need a bag if you fly since the airline required us to check it..we are happy with it.

Weaknesses:

The footrests definitely need some work ..they come off very easly..I needed to use some bungie cords to keep them from flapping around ..also used bungie cord to keep chair folded up when in bag...

3.5 / 5
Strengths:

It's light and solid.

Weaknesses:

I mentioned it above.

Reviewer:
User Details:

The footrests are too loose and during transpotation they move all over. They should have a lock-in-place knobs without taking them apart.
