Richard from Peoria, IL USA submitted this review on December 23rd 2007 at 07:49 PM. Richard is a care giver who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Easy to use, very adjustable to growth and comfort. My daughter is 4 years old, about 30lbs, and has Cerebral Palsy (quad). You can adjust the recline with one hand. It is easy to maneuver in tight spaces compared to other chairs. Also you can reverse the direction of the seat which puts the big tires in front which helps a lot while pushing in the grass.
Weaknesses:None!
Comments:I LOVE THIS CHAIR!!!!!!!!!!!

Mary from Michigan submitted this review on October 1st 2006 at 11:05 AM. Mary is a care giver who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Easy to use, very adjustable to growth and comfort. My son is 5 years old about 25kg severely mentally and physically disabled. He requires a molded head rest and usually reclined position. You can adjust the recline with one hand (very nice). I really like this because it is easily to maneuver in tight spaces compared to other chairs I tested. Also you can reverse the direction of the seat which puts the big tires in front which helps a lot while pushing in the grass.
Weaknesses:The brake handle sticks out and can get in the way of tie downs for transport. So you have to really watch where they are placed the first time we tied the chair down we broke one of the brakes.
Comments:Waist belts fall between the arm bracket all the time which gets frustrating if you are trying to hold your kid in and reach around both sides but you I learned to wedge them into the seat cushion before putting him in the chair. Overall I love this chair manufacturer very quick with parts for the brake (1 day).

Angelina from Oklahoma submitted this review on September 2nd 2005 at 10:16 AM. Angelina is a care giver who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Perfect pediatric chair. Very comfortable. I've two sons in wheelchairs (9 and 14 years old) and they've both got these wheelchairs. They're both after heavy spine injuries and have to have very tight positioning. They both wear a security seating harness for stability and they're tightened with belts. They wear specialized foam helmets which are adjusted to the headrests with halos (THEY CAN NORMALLY WEAR THEIR GLASSES WITH THE HELMETS ON). Shoes are adjusted to the foottrays. They spend all of their time positioned in their wheelchairs. The reclining system is very usefull. Both of them have also got oxygen tanks on their chairs and have to wear oxygen masks all the time.
Weaknesses: 
Comments:Because of their heavy spine injuries, both of my sons are totally wheelchair dependant and neither can operate his wheelchair. They have to be assited at all times. They do not move at all and both weigh around 120 kilos. These chairs are very practical, as they have a toileting feature. The boys don't have to use toilets and they can toilet on their own wheelchairs. They can toilet everywhere and don't need to wear diapers. I can recomend this chair for highly disabled children. It's very assistive and solves many problems.
