Outstanding product, easy to get in and out of a car, folds and sets up quickly, and the brakes on the handles allow you to set the brakes without bending over to lock the wheels for entry or exit of the chair. With the brakes on the handle the chair can also be used as a walker. A transport chair is not a wheelchair, it allows someone to transport an individual between places.
  • Chair is high enough for my grandma to get in and out of easily
  • Brake handles are convenient for preventing slipping when my grandma needs to get out
  • Big rear wheels for smoother and more stable- ride. Bigger wheels also help us go over cracks on walkways and roads.

I bought the first one of this model transport chairs several years ago for my mother who couldn't walk for extended distances. Since she had back surgery and now uses it almost all the time around the house and places she goes. This model transport chair has proven to be rugged yet lightweight and easy to collapse and put in the trunk. No maintenance issues at all. When I took it to Mom, she was so excited and insisted on taking it for a test ride. She said she felt like she was free to go anywhere once again. A few days later we took her to a buffet. She was able to be taken up and down the isles of food to make her own choices. I highly recommend this chair. It is strong, well constructed for larger people and the open sides of the seat do not squeeze Mom's legs and hips when she sits in it. The price of this exact chair elsewhere, was much higher. Now I need to buy a new walker for her and will most likely get it from this company.
