Heavier chair, but less likely to have something bend when traveling in the trunk
5/5 Ease of Use
5/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: elizabeth m. from brownsburg, in (caregiver)
User Details: Cerebral Palsy with spastic quadriplegia. Uses a manual chair for car transfer and some community visits. Uses a power chair at home.
Strengths: This is a sturdy chair that easily slides into the trunk for travel. Wheels and frame are less likely to sustain damage from being in a trunk then lightweight chairs. Use bungee cords to hold it down. The chair appears to be of good quality and is more cost-effective than a lightweight chair. Insurance will only pay for one wheelchair, so make sure you pay out of pocket for the most cost effective quality chair you can find if you need two chairs. We have one power chair and this manual chair for transport in a car, plane.
Weaknesses: It’s heavier than lightweight chairs and may be more difficult to lift for some people. We traded the lightweight titanium chair for this because the titanium bends easily when traveling in the trunk. More expensive to replace parts from a lightweight chair.
