|Strengths:||We've used this chair for my son with CP for 10 years now. First the child model, and now the small adult. It's been the most comfortable for him, and helps to stay away from the typical 'wheelchair look'..|
Easy to clean
|Weaknesses:||Lousy braking system which has been the source of ongoing headaches. Had to customize it with sections of bicycle tube, ABS pipe, duct tape, whatever, to keep the schoolbus system to accept it on their busses..|
Also, with the monstrous footpads in place, it can't be turned as needed. The wheels hit the pads. Ridicules. Called the manufacturer who told me to tilt the seat back. Not the position my son is supposed to be in. Don't they beta test these things?
|Comments:||Needs a much better restraint system. The velcro only last so long and isn't reliable over time. Should have a 5 point, single click , vest type harness..|
If this chair had some simple, basic improvements made to the design it would be heads and shoulders above the rest.
They need to ask parents how to design these chairs..
