Personal Opinion:
Love it! It is easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces and was easily adapted to accommodate the fact I am left-handed. It’s very stable when going up and down curbs with the crawler down. Both the leg rests and footplates are cushioned and can be raised to a 45-degree angle, although I added calf cushion. Very simple to use and can be switched into manual mode if needed, which is really useful if the battery cut out unexpectedly. The backrest is adaptable and can be reclined, making it very comfy. The speed can be altered quickly, even with limited dexterity. The back of the chair has a pocket which is handy. The only issue is the horn is so quiet it might as well not have one. I have been using powerchairs for 13 years and this is by far the best.
