1. My old wheelchair brakes pushed forward to stop and pulled back to move. This one is the opposite - forward to move and pull back to stop. Took some time to get used to that.
2. The pocket behind the back is too tight - makes it awfully small to put anything into it. Can't carry much.
3. My old chair also had a seat belt which I really liked and came to depend on, as I don't use the foot pedals much in my house. It would be nice if my new chair had a seat belt too, but it doesn't. I tend to slide out of the seat when I don't have the foot supports on.
