Diagnosis:
Fibromyalgia, ME & Chronic Back Pain.

Personal Opinion:
I would not necessarily recommend this chair to anybody, as it is not very comfortable and you feel every bump you go over. I am 5ft 7 and the footrests are on their longest adjustment, yet I find my knees get very painful sitting in this chair for longer than 15 minutes. Tipping occurs when going over even the smallest of dropped kerbs and the kerb steppers are useless. The first time using this they just spun around facing upside down, meaning I had to be taken up/down the kerbs backwards. The lap belt is not long enough for a larger person, which makes no sense considering the seat is larger than the standard size.
