Diagnosis:
Spina Bifida

Personal Opinion:
Benefits – A small frame that fits my body nicely. It goes through doorways easily, is very easy to manoeuvre around and can be tipped for kerbs etc. Has many accessory options including a zip bag on the back and a small hidden velcro pocket underneath. It also looks nice too and comes in a range of colours.
Drawbacks – The only one I’ve found is that the casters are very close to the back wheels, which give it a small surface area and it tips quite easily; especially if leaning forward too much, or going down sharp drop kerbs.
