The ability to recline the person for a more comfortable position. Also, being that the arm rests lift up, it's easier to slide the person onto the seat in the car. Oh, by the way, she really liked being outside in this chair. Her previous chair was a cheap, Medicare, transport chair. It was not a very good chair for her.
The very first time I brought my wife outside in this chair, it became very obvious this chair needs a hood, like the one's on baby strollers.
