    • Compact, lightweight, good for basic transport

      Yes, but. . .this chair is good for basic transport, my Mother in-law is comfortable and the 17inch width is easy to maneuver in tight spaces. However, for the attendant, the wheels get stuck a little too much in the uneven cracks on the sidewalk, so we're going to try a transport chair with a little more weight, and larger back wheels. Overall, this is a good buy for basic transport, to and from the car to the Doctor's office or in a shopping mall, but for taking long walks outside- it may be a challenge for the attendant.

    • Light weight transport wheelchair.

      I bought this for my 4' 8" tall mother. She is very petite and unable to get around the house on her own. This chair is able to get her through the narrowest of places. She easily fits through all the aisles at department stores and is easily pushed around the apartment and the small bathroom. The value for the quality and appearance are great. It was shipped for free and delivered in just a few days. Easy to get in and out of any vehicle. Thx O.

    • light weight and pretty

      This wheelchair will fit the need for my 92 year old mother. We will be able to go more places because it is not so cumbersome as the older big wheel one that we had.

    • User friendly, VERY STYLISH (lots of compliments)

      Needed a smaller transport chair than the norm. The 17" fits through many doors that the 19" would not go through. This is important for someone who can not walk at all. Searched a long time to find a chair in this smaller size and the stylish plaid was just a BONUS. We are very excited to have found this one!!!

    • Great transport chair.

      This chair is great. It is very easy to maneuver, lightweight and easy to get in and out of my car. It is well constructed. My mother loves the plaid and everyone comments on how attractive it is. My mother finds it comfortable and actually prefers it to a regular wheel chair.

    • Super lightweight!

      This wheelchair is great! Nice tan, plaid fabric-like vinyl (easy to keep clean). Our favorite feature is that it is super-lightweight! Fits in all the doors of our house, even the smaller guest-bathroom door. My only wish is that I wish the brakes were easier for the person sitting in the chair to reach, but other than that, it is perfect. So happy with the purchase--have taken it all over town, and my elderly mother says it is very comfortable.
