The benefits are that I can go places, but I must be accompanied by a person who can push me around, as it is hard to propel this chair. The footrests are higher than some wheelchairs which enables me to go along paths without catching my feet.
The disadvantages are that it is uncomfortable for long periods of time even with a padded cushion. On uneven ground you feel every bump in the path/road and you sometimes have to go down dropped kerbs backward in order to then get up them.
Overall it has improved my quality of life because without it I would be unable to go outdistances or on holiday. Although for my condition I would not recommend it, but others may find it beneficial depending on their needs.
