The main benefit of this chair is the elevating seat. The elevating switch does take some strength to use however. It is relatively small so can be used in a non-wheelchair accessible house if you don't mind some damage to paint work, as the rear wheels stick out so can be difficult to judge where the wheels are. As a front wheel drive it does tend to over steer at the faster speeds.
Elevating seat meant it cost a few hundred pounds more than chairs of a similar size. It also doesn't break apart for transport, and it is heavy to lift, to point I'd say a hoist would be needed to get it into a car.
I personally remove an arm rest and don't use footplate to make it easier to use around my tiny house. You'd need more space otherwise as the footplate makes the turning circle bigger.
Not suitable for sitting in all day I find, because there is no pressure relieving qualities to the seat. I also wouldn't use it outdoors as it isn't made for uneven surfaces.
If it wasn't for the elevating seat it wouldn’t be my first choice as I prefer mid wheel drive chairs.
Mine also arrived smashed to bits but Betterlife replaced it no issues.
