I haven’t used this chair for some time now, but they still sell the same model today. It is surprisingly well made for an off the shelf lower end chair, but I had to add my own headrest and lumbar cushion for additional support.
The tilt and recline feature can only be manually operated, making it quite jolty at times the transitions are far from smooth. Plus it can be quite difficult to get in and out of because you cannot automatically alter the position to aid with transfers.
Finally, the rear wheeled suspension sometimes makes it prone to tipping on ramps; and the push handles and leg rests stick out quite far, so it’s difficult to get on and off public transport!
