I already had the "generic" walker with no extras and wanted one with a seat. This one is really classy and is such a pleasure to use; very easy to maneuver. I strapped on a space-foam pillow just to use in the kitchen since it makes it higher for small chores at the cabinet-top level. With my bad back it really makes it more comfortable. Works great! Be SURE to lock the brakes before sitting, though. I'm really pleased with this item. Thanks!
