4/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: dayna t. from bloomington, in
User Details: I am a 63-year old female who is retired on disability. I recently had my left leg amputated after 14 years of leg surgeries and pain.
Strengths: Sturdy, comfortable, well-made
Weaknesses: Tiller is constantly getting hit (by me, my clothes, other people's clothes) causing chair to turn on (in some instances) and go forward unexpectedly. Even when I bend over in some instances, it jolts forward, because I have hit the tiller. One time it happened in the kitchen, and My hand was stuck between the chair and a kitchen cabinet, and I couldn't get at the tiller (hard to explain position). How about a flat tiller (sort of like the circle with the up/down and left/right design on most TV remotes? To me, this is the biggest design flaw. It CAN be very dangerous.
On speeds 3 & 4, the chair will not go in a straight line, but instead veers from left to right.
It is loud, making a loud WHIRRR. I have rented a slightly smaller wheelchair, but basically very similar, and it was extremely quiet compared to this one. I don't like it because when you enter a room, all eyes turn to you because of the noise.
These are all small things, but if improved, would make this a much better product.
