4/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: karen c. from atlanta, ga
User Details: Female, age 58, AK amputee, right side. Uses wheelchair when not using prosthetic leg.
Strengths: This is a smooth ride that is well-made and durable. It has more the feel of a nice bike than a piece of medical equipment, so it isn't depressing to have it around. The welds are good and the paint finishes are smooth. I got the most basic back but so far it provides decent support and is comfortable.
Weaknesses: I would say the main weakness is not so much in the product itself and more the lack of access to a brick-and-mortar setting where different chairs can be experienced in real life, before making a selection. A chair of this quality is a big financial investment and it is nearly impossible to make all the decisions for finishes and set-up sight unseen. The man who helped me place my order on the phone was patient and helpful, but he could not know (because I didn't either) that I would end up wishing the footplate was set higher or that I'd chosen better quality brakes and clothing guards. It would be so helpful to be able to see, touch and try out these very personal products before placing an order.
