Strengths:*Durable surfaces- haven't seen signs of wear on the paint or pads on any of ours, yet.
*Hard to steal- to the best of my knowledge, none have disappeared.
Weaknesses:*Harder to maneuver- these things are ridiculously wide and difficult to get through doors/around tight corners.
*Confusing for those who haven't used them- multiple times a day I see people getting into them from the front, which is not very safe due to the configuration; they can't understand the idea that these are side entry chairs. Furthermore, many people have trouble getting in on the side safely because they have no chair arms to support them.
*Awkward to use- the leg rest and foot rest interfere with each other.
*Nestable is a loose term- they nest, IF everything is lined up perfectly and all the leg rests are down. Even the foot rests have to be lined up just right. This doesn't take much time to do, but requires a willingness by all users to make it happen consistently... which never happens. In reality, they take up just as much space (or more) as other wheelchairs we've used.
*Brake can pinch hands- and has a few times.
Comments:Not really an improvement over traditional designs. I like the concept, but the application falls short. I suppose in a very controlled environment, where trained staff were available to help users and to put them away neatly, these would be great. But that's not realistic for us (community hospital emergency department). Of course, we weren't consulted before the decision to purchase these.

K from San Antonio, TX USA submitted this review on April 23rd 2016 at 01:25 PM. K is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Storage of luggage bag
Weaknesses:Have used in airports and find it very uncomfortable. Also person in staxi is not able to move it so they are stranded where they are. I am sorry but I HATE them and wish for regular wheelchairs. Wonder if inventor ever had to sit in one for any period of time or if can't walk felt helpless. Also for me, hard to enter from the side...much easier to enter from the front. My feet can't reach foot rest and no place for crutches to rest.
Comments:Sorry, I hate having to use it. So uncomfortable.

felecia from ram, calif submitted this review on January 6th 2014 at 02:52 PM. felecia is a care giver who has less than a month of experience with the product.
Strengths:my mother has osteoporosis so this chair is perfect for her. mom is able to sit upright. another good feature is memory issues which may it difficult for mom to keep feet on pedals on traditional wheelchairs. mom is more alert and appears more engaging with people she sees while sitting in this ergonomical chair. thank you for this wonderful design.
Weaknesses: 
Comments:fantastic useable product

Bill from Fairfield, California, USA submitted this review on December 7th 2011 at 09:32 AM. Bill is a clinician who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Durable structure and paint.
Great brake design.
Footrest is separate from calfboards (which we removed).
Ease of cleaning. (remove cushion and hose down).
Resistant to theft.
Nested storage.
Weaknesses:Front casters tend to bend easily when struck.
User cannot operate.
Comments:Before we procured Staxi chairs I was repairing or replacing wheelchairs at an alarming rate. Now minor maintenance is performed on Staxi chairs on a quarterly basis which keeps our 20+ chairs in tip top condition. "work smarter, not harder"

Stephen from Bloomington, IL, USA submitted this review on October 30th 2007 at 10:06 AM. Stephen is a care giver who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:The transport chair has several strengths. The first is the overall versatility. It is easy to move and can carry a heavy load. The second strength would have to be how close you can get to a vehicle with the chair. The third strength is how it conforms to the natural curvature of the spine. The fourth strength spreads the weight out evenly.
Weaknesses:The look of the transport chair is the biggest weakness. People automatically call it a grocery cart and believe that it is going to be very uncomfortable.
Comments:Besides loving the transport chair our patients love the transport chair.

Comments:I am a volunteer at Kaiser Hospital in Walnut Creek, California. One of my responsibilities is to provide wheelchair transportation to our patients. Kaiser has bought many or your chairs and will buy more in the future. I believe it major attraction is its lack of attraction -- for stealing that is. That said, from my prospective another virtue is its nestability -- they can be stored in a much smaller space than can conventional wheelchairs. What is lacking is the ability to push several chairs at one time in their nested configuration. When a chair is nested with another, the rear chair should lift the rear wheels of the chair in front of it off the ground thereby negating the brakes of all chairs ahead of the rearmost one. (If memory serves, it seems to me the first batch of chairs we obtained years ago did this.) Now if you are pushing a string of nested chairs and you slow down for any reason there is a likelihood that the string will tend to disengage. Shopping cart gatherers solve this problem by attaching a line to the front cart that runs to the pusher in the rear.

To allow current wheelchairs to thus function, they could be fitted with a Velcro strap on the handlebar that would hold the brake lever in its released position.

Your chair does have virtues. One of its principal ones should not be frustrated when a simple design change is all that it takes.
