This chair works well for my father-in-law. Even though he is over 6' tall
and 220 pounds, he needed a chair that was not deep seated. His legs do come out past the foot rest, a little , but he says it is very comfortable and he is happy with the chair. The remote is easy to use.
Recently my sister fell and injured her knee and as you get older it's hard to get around with just crutches. When we found out she needed surgery, I realize that she was going to need a wheel chair to get to and from her doctor appointments. After doing some research on the Internet, I saw the Drive Medical K320ADDA-ELR Cruiser III Lightweight Dual Axle Wheelchair and it was everything I needed in a wheelchair and the price was right. As you get older, you never think about falling or about the results of that fall. Now that everybody is getting older, I feel more prepared that we have a wheelchair in the family.
Came with little assembly required and a leaflet to describe its features. It may not be as heavy-duty as the more expensive, high-end models available; but for someone who is still ambulatory and just needs a little support or can't walk long distances and needs to be wheeled occasionally, it fits the bill economically. I like the wheels - very agile. Compact design fits on the floor in the back seat of our sedan.
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.
