Personal Opinion

I find this chair to be a great option for outdoor use; but the mid-wheel drive means it is also easy to get around indoors, along with the centre mounted leg rests give it a smaller turning circle. If you have unlimited financial resources, you could pretty much adapt this chair in anyway you wanted/needed. Sadly I don’t have all the adaptations I need, as they are very expensive. But it is still a great chair, which has improved my quality of life by reducing my pain and improving my independence. Having the option to recline if needed is also a big help for people struggling with pain! I’ve listed some more of the good and bad things about this chair below, as I think I would only recommend this chair to people with certain requirements!

Positive Features:
– comes with many adaptable features
– crash tested, so can go in a car
– can travel at 6mph
– decent suspension
– having 6 wheels means it is less likely to tip forward or backward

Negatives Features:
– expensive
– parts take ages to order
– requires a wheelchair accessible van to transport, or at very least a large car with a large boot and a heavy duty hoist
– it isn’t designed for taller people as the leg rests are a bit short when elevated, so if you have long legs you won’t be able to straighten them.
– due to narrow base, it can only hold the smaller batteries

Features
