My husband can use this for short trips around the house. We added a pad to make it higher for him (he's quite tall), but the foot rests were long enough for his long legs. There is one thing to remember. You can't lean backwards in it or it will fall over.
The Chair does what it is suppose to do, the only issue I have is that it does not lock open, it is the weight of the person sitting in it that keeps it open. It has a seat belt that I recommend using, when going over thresholds or down a bumpy slop it helps. The other issue that I have is it "Smells" like machine oil. I have not gone over it yet to see where it's coming from but I'm sure the wheel bearings or axles. Other than that I have no regrets bung this. It has allowed us to take our 94 year old mother places with us that we could not before. She can walk but not far or for long, so this really helps us.
