Q & A
Q: the person interested in this chair had a stroke some years ago and only has left side control. Can the controls be located on the left side?
A: Yes you can mount the joystick on either the left or right side.
Q: Are the leg rests adjustable?
A: No, they just flip up and back out of the way. I am 6′ and they are set about right for almost any size below that.
This chair is very well designed and I bought it directly from KD. I have ALS and have one issue with the chair. It is a side access chair, you must enter and exit from the side. I did not know that before I bought. I did not see any info describing that specific detail in the manufactures web site video, description or other owner reviews. I am far enough along in my ALS progression that I need to use my arms to get started lifting my body weight up or back to a sitting position.
