Q & A
Q: Is this a foldable chair?
A: Yes – it’s a lightweight and folds very well. The wheels pop off if needed, as do the foot pedals.
Q: Does chair come with anti-tippers? If not, how much do they cost?
A: Yes they are optional and cost is $39 Pair.
Q: I’m torn is this chair worth the money for an occasional user? Do I need to purchase footrests?
A: The chair is great if someone is pushing you however I find it to be rather difficult to use on my own. The wheels are set back a little too far, but can be adjusted forward, for me to give a long length of movement. The chair is much more comfortable than many of my past chairs and it is much lighter weight and easier to deal with too.
I believe the chair comes with foot rests. Mine are comfortable and sturdy. Note… I have lost 90 pounds since the last time I used it so it may be easier to use on my own now. I will test it out this weekend on a trip to Disneyland.
Q: I bought this chair and am having trouble – it does not roll like last chair – working twice as hard to get anywhere. Am I doing something wrong?
A: I have had this chair for one week and it is difficult to push unlike my other chairs. I am going to call the company. Will let you know what they say. Everything else I like about it but can’t live with how it rolls. No carpet only tile.
Q: when you raise the “height” of the chair by changing where the rear wheels are placed the chair tilts forward. How can chair be used tilted?
A: I never had to change the ‘height’ of the chair by moving the rear wheels so I never dealt with a forward tilt. The chair was perfect for me straight out of the box after the leg attachments were secured. I always sat horizontal to the floor- felt very safe & secure.
This chair was purchased for an elderly father who spends all day in the chair. He was using the nursung centers and really wasn, all that comfortable.This is great, he said if he has to be stuck in a chair for his remaining days, this is the chair he’ll do it in. THe arms lift up and rotate out of the way so when he goes to dinner he can be rolled right up to the table, no more side sitting. works great taking him out to resteraunts for holidays.
The removable, washable cushions are a real plus’ Looking into purcgasing a second set of cushions to make swapping them out for home cleaning easier. The chair is light ,compacts easy to fit in a trunk, and rolls like a sport chair. I work in a 600 bed hospital and have worked on differant chairs, this is as good or better than any I’ve seen in my 30 years there.
Karman S-305 is a great Wheelchair for me once I get a new cushion
I am a quadriplegic from breaking my neck. I regained the usage of my arms. I bought this chair to help me gain strength in my arms. I have to use a ROHO cushion to prevent pressure soars on my bottom. The cushion that I use is 4 inches. With the cushion I had to lower the chair to the highest hole so I can reach the wheels.
Couldn’t be happier!
This is the most amazingly well made, light-weight, balanced, manageable wheel chair I have ever laid my hands on!!! Kudos to the designer and manufacturer for exceeding my expectations on every small detail. Quick release foot rests unlike any I’ve ever seen, extra light frame but strong. Tires that actually hold the brake contact, and brakes that you don’t have to “fish” for! The seat covers are extraordinary in both comfort and functionality. EVERYTHING adjusts to a custom fit. I can’t say enough good. The shipping was right on the money, and NO assembly required.
Heartfelt thanks to the Karman company for making such and incredible piece of equipment.
