Easy to tote
C.S. (USA) 12/1/2009 2:13 PM
Compared to a regular wheelchair with the big tires, this one is a lot easier to get in and out of your car as well as cruising through small areas a regular one has trouble with. A regular wheelchair is easier to push because of the big wheels, but this chair is still fairly easy to push. Uphill and all-terrain driving requires some muscle power that may limit some weaker "pushers" but overall its not too bad. I definitely appreciate the breaking mechanism on this little chair too -- downhill is not as scary and speed can be maintained. Also, this chair can pop wheelies over doorstops, gaps and curbs a bit easier than some of the bigger chairs, and the little foot pegs on the back help with that. I would have liked the pocket to be wider on the back, since the size really limits what you can stuff in there. Don't plan on packing a sandwich or a piece of fruit, more like some crackers and a fruit roll-up or other small items. However, the price is great, since it's a lot cheaper than renting a wheelchair for only 2 months. Too bad they didn't come out with a chair with a 14" tire, since that might help with some of the pushing effort you exert with chairs with smaller tires. Overall, I think we made a good choice with this chair.

Nice Chair
M. Barlow (FLA) 12/1/2009 2:10 PM
Nice Chair. Very light weight, big back tires make it easy to go over door jams and such. Tires are composite so they don't require air. My Dad says it is a very comfortable chair(he should know since it's for him). It folds up will very little effort. The foot rests are adjustable with supplied wrench. We are very happy with this chair.

Cute Red Wheelchair - Great Buy, Great Product
Karen D. (Atlanta, GA) 12/1/2009 2:09 PM
This was a purchase for my Mom who came to town for a visit. She cannot walk distances. This wheelchair is red and it is very attractive. Transport means just that, someone else does the pushing - there are no big back wheels that allow the rider to push themselves - also why it's more compact and cute. Very sytlish. We were able to do so much more with my Mom that we would not have been able to do otherwise - Braves game, the Aquarium, CNN studio tour (btw, does not allow strollers), Centennial Park - watching the kids play in the water rings, World of Coke... It's great for airport use too - just gatecheck it. It is so lightweight & compact - can probably fit in any trunk. If it were not so cute, I don't think my Mom would have allowed us to use it.
