Strengths:Durable
Power assist
Dependable
Weaknesses:Weight
Comments:I bought the original Tailwind (which was called IGlide) in 2004. I use it everyday and have taken it places I would not have been able to go in a manual or even a powerchair. I have had not had any problems with this chair other than needing to purchase new batteries from time to time. The last time I bought a battery was in 2011. While still in the hospital I tested this chair and the Quickie power assist and the quality and dependability of the IGlide/Tailwind far outweighed the Quickie. This chair has lasted so much longer than other people's chairs. I can't say enough great things about this chair. When it gives out I will be purchasing another one because I'm sure it will outlast me!
