Purchased for use on 'usual' toilets, even some in 'accessible toilets' are not suitable for lots of people with accessible needs. Suitable for persons with 'knee or hip issues', where squatting on usual toilet is uncomfortable or transfer from/to a mobility aid to lower toilet is a problem. This product is fairly light-weight to carry, and the back flat side makes it easy to stand upright on luggage trolleys or back seat floor of vehicle. For transport & storage, we put euro-pillowcase on unit and place in one of those give-away carrier bags, I close by safety-pinning the pocket over the unit to other side of the bag. (I place the Bio TP-70 portable bidet in the center, a pair of disposable briefs and small pack of handwipes & disposal bag... then all requirements are at hand.) Only issue I found, unit fits round toilet bowls and will slide a little when placed on elongated toilet bowls. However, trade-off for seat height is worth it.
Really a great wheel chair. Very light. Folds and unfolds quickly. Lifts easily into the car. I bought this particular chair because the magnesium alloy used is more sturdy than the aluminum alloy used in other transport wheel chairs. I need it to last when I take my mom out in the ice and snow here in Minnesota. We have to power over icey sidewalks and parking lots. My mom claims it's comfortable.
The caregiver of the mobility-challenged person I sent this to said it tilted forward when she pushed it while it was converted to a transport chair mode. It scared the user...
